Goods & Financial Markets: The IS-LM Model

The IS-LM Model

The determination of output and

interest rates in the short-run

Goods & Financial Markets: The IS-LM Model

The goods market and the IS relation

• Equilibrium in the goods market:Production (Y) = Demand (Z)
• Or Investment = Saving  “IS” Relation
• Demand (Z)= C+I+G C=C(Y-T) T & G are given
• Now letInvestment depend on the level of sales (Y) and the interest rate (i):

Supply of

Goods

Demand for

Goods (Z)

The IS curve

Equilibrium:

In the goods market, the higher the interest rate, the lower is investment and the lower is equilibrium output.

What do you think:

How would a decrease in consumer confidence shift the IS curve?

Financial Markets and the LM Relation

Money market equilibrium:

Demand for liquidity (L) = Supply of Money (M)

M = nominal money supply (controlled by the Central Bank)

\$YL(i) = Demand for money (function of nominal income and the interest rate)

Equilibrium Interest Rate:

M=\$YL(i)

Real Income

Real Money Supply =Real Money Demand: Y(L)i

The IS-LM Model Exercises

Equilibrium Requires:

i & Y is the only interest rate, output combination that yields a simultaneous equilibrium in the goods and financial markets

A Scenario:

The President and Congress agree on a policy to reduce the budget deficit by increasing taxes, while holding gov’t spending constant.

Question:

What impact will this fiscal contraction policy have on output and interest rates?

What shifts? IS, LM or both?

Fiscal Policy, Activity, and the Interest Rate

The IS-LM Equilibrium Graphically

• IS & LM: Before the tax increase
• Equilibrium A: i & Y

• IS´: After the tax increase
• Would the tax increase change
• LM?
• Disequilibrium at i (F, A) after

Fiscal Policy, Activity, and the Interest Rate

Here’s one for the devil’s advocate…

Is deficit reduction good or bad for investment?

Interest rate falls  good for investment

But

Output falls  bad for investment

A Scenario:

The Fed engages in monetary expansion, i.e., it increases the money supply through open market operations

Question:

What impact will the monetary expansion have on output and interest?

What shifts? IS, LM, or both?

The effects of fiscal and monetary policy

The policy dilemma of 1992:

Record high federal budget deficit (4.5% of GNP)

High unemployment and slow growth

Deficit reduction reduces output

Expansionary fiscal policy increases the deficit

Deficit reduction and expansionary monetary policy

Recall:

Solution: Policy Mix

Using a Policy Mix

Observations:

• Strong consumer confidence andstock market shifting IS from 1992to 1998
• The strong expansion automaticallyreduced the deficit (1% growth reducesthe deficit to GNP ratio by 0.5%)

Observations:

• Changes in output adjust slowly to changes in the goods market (IS)
• Interest rates adjust instantaneously to changes in the financial markets (LM)

A Summary

• Monetary policy changes interest rates rapidly and output slowly
• The Central Bank must consider the output lag when implementing monetary policy
