U.S. Income Relationships 2007Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

Less: Consumption of Fixed Capital

Equals: Net Domestic Product (NDP)

Less: Statistical Discrepancy

Plus: Net Foreign Factor Income

Equals: National Income (NI)

Less: Taxes on Production and Imports

Less: Social Security Contributions

Less: Corporate Income Taxes

Less: Undistributed Corporate Profits

Plus: Transfer Payments

Equals: Personal Income (PI)

Less: Personal Taxes

Equals: Disposable Income (DI)

Income – Consumption Relationship and

Income – Saving Relationship

- Disposable Income (DI)
- DI = C+S
- Personal Saving (S) – “not spending”
- Consumption (C) – Consumption spending
- The Consumption Schedule (consumption function)
- A schedule showing the various amounts that households would plan to consume at each of the various levels of DI that might prevail at some point in time
- The Saving Schedule (saving function)
- A schedule showing the various amounts that households would plan to save at each of the various levels of DI that might prevail as some point in time
- Break-even Income– the level of income at which households plan to consume their entire incomes C=DI

MPC – marginal propensity to consume – the fraction of any change in

Income that will be consumed. Change in Consumption / Change in Income

MPS – marginal propensity to save – the fraction of any change in

Consumption and Saving

- Wealth – value of real (houses and land) and financialassets (cash, bank accounts, securities, pensions)
- Wealth Effects – causes consumption and saving to increase or decrease
- Expectations – about inflation, recession, etc
- Real Interest Rates (adjusted for inflation)
- Household Debt – more debt enables more consumption
- Taxation –
- Consumption & saving move in same direction – taxes affect both

TERMINOLOGY, SHIFTS, & STABILITY

- Terminology
- Movement along a curve (change in amount consumed) vs. shift of a curve
- Schedule Shifts
- Wealth,
- expectations,
- interest rates,
- household debt
- Taxes – affect both C and S
- Stability – consumption & savings functions relatively stable

The Interest Rate – Investment

Relationship

Relationship between real interest rates and investment.

Investment – expenditures on new plants, capital equipment, machinery, inventories, etc.

Investment decision – a MB MC decision.

MB is the expected rate of return businesses hope to realize.

MC is the interest rate that must be paid for borrowed funds.

Business will invest in all projects where expected rate of return exceed the interest rate.

The two basic determinants of investment spending!

Relationship

Expected Rate of Return, r

Real Interest Rate:

i is the nominal rate adjusted for inflation.

Inverse relationship between Investment demand and the real interest rate.

Causes of Instability of Investment

- Durability of capital goods
- Irregularity of Innovation
- Variability of Profits
- Variability of Expectations

Initial Change in Spending

The Multiplier Effect- More spending results in higher GDP
- Initial change in spending changes GDP by a multiple amount

Multiplier =

The Multiplier Effect

- Causes of the initial change in spending
- Changes in investment
- Other changes – such as?
- Rationale
- Dollars spent are received as income
- Income received is spent (MPC)
- Initial changes in spending cause a spending chain

The Multipliers

- Spending Multiplier = 1/MPS
- An autonomous change in spending results in a change in aggregate production in the same direction.
- Tax Multiplier = - (MPC/MPS)
- If, for example, the MPC is 0.75 (and the MPS is 0.25), then an autonomous $1 trillion change in taxes results in an opposite change in aggregate production of $3 trillion
- Balanced Budget Multiplier = 1
- The balanced-budget multiplier measures the combined impact on aggregate production of equal changes in government purchases and taxes. The simple balanced-budget multiplier has a value equal to one

The Spending Multiplier Effect

Multiplier Effect and the Marginal Propensities

Inverse relationship between:

Multiplier & MPS

The Tax Multiplier

- (- MPC/MPS)
- You are the chief economic adviser to the president. You are instructed to devise a plan to reduce unemployment to an acceptable level without increasing the level of government spending.
- You decide to cut taxes and maintain the spending level.
- A tax cut increases disposable income which leads to increases in consumption.
- Would the decrease in taxes affect aggregate output in the same way as an increase in government spending?

The Tax Multiplier

- A tax decrease causes an income increase.
- Consumption increases
- Inventories decrease
- Output increases in response.
- Employment and income increase and lead to subsequent rounds of spending.
- GDP will increase by a multiple of the decrease in taxes.
- The multiplier for a change in taxes is not the same as the multiplier for an change in government spending.

The Tax Multiplier

- Why does the tax multiplier differ from the Government spending multiplier?
- Compare how each works its way through the economy.
- First an increase in G.
- The increase in G leads to an immediate and direct impact on total spending.
- Because G is a component of GDP, an increase in G leads to a dollar for dollar increase in GDP.
- If G increases by $1, GDP initially increases by $1.

The Tax Multiplier

- The tax cut case
- When taxes are cut there is no direct impact on spending.
- Taxes first have an impact on a household’s disposable income which influences household consumption spending (an element of total spending)
- The tax cut flows through households before affecting aggregate expenditure.
- If the tax cut = $1, by how much would spending increase?

The Tax Multiplier

- If the MPC = .75, spending will increase by $0.75.
- Because the initial increase in GDP is smaller for a tax cut than for an increase in Government spending, the final effect on the equilibrium level of GDP will be smaller.
- The tax multiplier = - (MPC/MPS)

The Balanced Budget Multiplier

- Balanced Budget Multiplier = 1
