Three sector model l.jpg

Three-Sector Model

  • With the introduction of the government sector (i.e. together with households C, firms I), aggregate expenditure E consists of one more component, government expenditure G.

    E = C + I+ G

  • Still, the equilibrium condition is

    Planned Y = Planned E


Three sector model6 l.jpg

Three-Sector Model

  • Consumption function is positively related to disposable income Yd [slide 37 of 2-sector model],

    C = f(Yd)

    C= C’

    C= cYd

    C= C’ + cYd


Three sector model7 l.jpg

Three-Sector Model

  • National Income  Personal Income  Disposable Personal Income

  • w/ direct income tax Ta and transfer payment Tr

  • Yd  Y

  • Yd = Y - Ta + Tr


Three sector model8 l.jpg

Three-Sector Model

  • Transfer payment Tr can be treated as negative tax, T is defined as direct income tax Ta net of transfer payment Tr

  • T = Ta - Tr

  • Yd = Y - (Ta - Tr)

  • Yd = Y - T

  • In equilibrium, planned Y = planned E

Injection withdrawal approach l.jpg

Injection-Withdrawal Approach

  • In a 3-sector model, national income is either consumed, saved or taxed by the government

  • Y = C + S + T

  • Given E = C + I + G

  • In equilibrium, Y = E

  • C + S + T = C + I + G

  •  S + T = I + G


Injection withdrawal approach49 l.jpg

Injection-Withdrawal Approach

  • Since S + T = I + G

  • S  I

  • T  G

  • I > S  T > G

  • I < S  T < G

  • (Compare with 2-sector model)

  • In equilibrium S = I


Injection withdrawal approach50 l.jpg

Injection-Withdrawal Approach

  • T = T’ + tY

  • S = -C’ + (1-c) Yd

  • S = -C’ + (1 - c)[Y -_(T’ + tY)]

  • S = -C’ + (1 - c)[Y - T’ - tY]

  • S = -C’ + Y - T’ - tY - cY + cT’ + ctY

  • S = -C’ + cT’ -T’ - tY + Y - cY + ctY

  • S = -C’ + cT’ - (T’ + tY) + Y - cY + ctY


Injection withdrawal approach51 l.jpg

Injection-Withdrawal Approach

  • S + T = -C’ + cT’ -(T’+ tY) + Y - cY + ctY +T

  • S + T = -C’ + cT’ + Y - cY + ctY

  • In equilibrium, S + T = I + G

  • -C’ + cT’ + Y - cY + ctY = I’ + G’

  • (1- c + ct)Y = C’ - cT’ + I’ + G’

  • Ye = k E * E’

Automatic built in stabilizers l.jpg

Automatic Built-in Stabilizers

  • Proportional /Progressive Tax System

    • Recession: government’s tax revenue 

    • Boom: government’s tax revenue 

  • The more progressive the tax system, the greater is its stabilizing effect. But there will be greater dis-incentives to earn income

  • With t, k E  With proportional tax, the multiplying effect of a discretionary change in government expenditure G’ reduces


Automatic built in stabilizers59 l.jpg

Automatic Built-in Stabilizers

  • Welfare Schemes

  • Unemployment benefits, public assistance allowances, agricultural support schemes

    • Recession: government’s expenditure

    • Boom: government’s expenditure 

  • Again, if the welfare schemes are generous, the incentives to work will be weakened.


Discretionary fiscal policy v s automatic built in stabilizers l.jpg

Discretionary Fiscal Policy v.s.Automatic Built-in Stabilizers

  • If the economy is close to Yf, built-in stabilizers are useful as they can stabilize the economy around Yf or potential income level.

  • However, if the economy is far below Yf, discretionary fiscal policy is still necessary (Simple Keynesian model).

  • Another drawback of the built-in stabilizers is they may reduce the speed of recovery as

  • k E  Y = k E * E’


Discretionary fiscal policy l.jpg

Discretionary Fiscal Policy

  • Government expenditure G’? Tax T’?

  • Location of effects

  • If a recession is localized in a particular industry  G’

  • Tax cut will have its impact on the entire economy


Discretionary fiscal policy62 l.jpg

Discretionary Fiscal Policy

  • Government expenditure G’? Tax T’?

  • Duration of the time lag

    • Decision lag : time involved to assess a situation & decide what corrective actions should be taken

    • Executive lag : time involved to initiate corrective policies & for their full impact to be felt

       tax cut has a much shorter executive lag


Discretionary fiscal policy63 l.jpg

Discretionary Fiscal Policy

  • Government expenditure G’? Tax T’?

  • Reversibility of the fiscal policy

    • Government expenditure can easily be increased but are not so easy to cut as the civil servants who have vested interests in the present allocation of government expenditure will resist

    • Tax is easier to be changed as the civil servants who administer income tax is independent of the rate being levied. Of course, voter resistance should also be considered.


Discretionary fiscal policy64 l.jpg

Discretionary Fiscal Policy

  • Government expenditure G’? Tax T’?

  • Public reaction to short-term changes

  • A temporary tax cut raises Yd. Households, recognizing this situation, may not revise their current consumption. Instead, they save a large part of the tax cut.


Financing the government budget increasing taxes l.jpg

Financing the Government BudgetIncreasing Taxes

  • By increasing taxes, the government transfers purchasing power from current taxpayers to itself

  • Current taxpayers bear the cost

  • If the revenue is spent on some investment project, (current / future) taxpayers may benefit when the project is completed.

  • How about the revenue is spent on transfer payment?


Financing the government budget printing more money l.jpg

Financing the Government BudgetPrinting more Money

  • This will create inflationary pressure.

  • Households and firms will be able to buy less with each unit of money. Fewer resources are available for private consumption and investment.

  • Those whose incomes respond slowly to changes in price levels will bear most of the cost of the government activity


Financing the government budget internal debt l.jpg

Financing the Government BudgetInternal Debt

  • The government can transfer purchasing power from any willing lenders to itself in return for the promise to repay equivalent purchasing power plus interest in future.

  • Since, repayment of the debt are made from tax revenue, future taxpayers will suffer.

  • However, if the debt raised today is spent on creating capital assets, the burden on future generation will be lighter.


Financing the government budget external debt l.jpg

Financing the Government BudgetExternal Debt

  • Borrowing from abroad transfers purchasing power from foreigners to the government.

  • The burden on future generations will once again depend on how the debt raised is used (investment project / transfer payment)

  • Sources of financing G’

  • Increasing Tax

    • will exert a contractionary effect on the economy

  • Increasing Money Supply

The problems of the simple keynesian multiplier k e71 l.jpg

The Problems of the Simple Keynesian Multiplier k E

  • Effects on Private Investment I’

  • Private investment may be crowded out when government increases its expenditure

  • It is questionable that the government can really produce something which is desired by the consumers

  • Besides, government investment projects are usually less productive than private investment projects


The problems of the simple keynesian multiplier k e72 l.jpg

The Problems of the Simple Keynesian Multiplier k E

  • Productivity of Government Projects

  • Government projects may not yield a rate of return (MEC / MEI) exceeding the market interest rate.
