AD-AS Short Run

Building the short run AD-AS model from the IS-LM framework

The IS curve is generated from the Keynesian Cross and the LM curve is generated from the market for real money balances.

Now we will generate the AD curve from IS-LM and use short run and long run models of AS to explain short run economic fluctuations.

- We now allow price level to vary in the IS-LM model. This provides a theory for the position and slope of the AD curve.

In the short run price is fixed at P1 and equilibrium is at point 1.

In the long run price falls to P2, quantity demanded increases, and equilibrium moves to point 2. This is characterized by a shifting SRAS curve.

- The algebra behind the system is a bit tedious. But, by solving the LM curve for “r” and plugging into the IS curve which contains “r” on the right hand side you obtain the IS-LM equilibrium condition or AD curve.

The IS curve boils down to…

Plugging “r” into the IS curve and solving for Y yields…

- In this section we derived the AD curve via the IS-LM equilibrium condition. We looked at fiscal and monetary policy effects on the IS-LM model. We looked at the shifting effects that monetary and fiscal policies have on the AD curve and used the IS-LM model with the AD-AS model to explain short run and long run changes to the economy.
