Determine the impact of simultaneous increase in government expenditure and money supply (such that ) on equilibrium output and the interest rate.

Expert's answer

IS curve is:

Y = C + I + G = 200 + 0.25(Y - 200) + 150 + 0.25Y – 1000i + 250,

0.5Y = 550 - 1000i,

Y = 1100 - 2000i or i = 0.55 - 0.001Y.

The slope is -0.001.

The shift variables of the IS curve are: C, I, G, T, i.

AD = Y = 550 - 1000i.

We need to know additional data about the LM curve to find equilibrium level of output and the interest rate.

The expenditure multiplier is:

"m = 1\/(1 - c) = 1\/0.75 = 4\/3."

A simultaneous increase in government expenditure and money supply will increase AD, as a result the equilibrium output will increase and the interest rate will decrease.
