Answer to Question #51156 in Macroeconomics for abdulla sabit
Suppose the consumption function of a society is:C=600+0.85Y where C=Total Consumption;Y=Personal disposable income.Identify the following:1)Autonomous consumption.2)Marginal propensity to consume;3)When Y=1000,what will be the induced consumption?4)If income is increased to 3000,what will happen to the total consumption?5)What is the autonomous consumption when income is 1000?
C=600+0.85Y where C=Total Consumption;Y=Personal disposable income. As C = Ca + c*Y: 1) Autonomous consumption is Ca = 600. 2) Marginal propensity to consume is c = 0.85; 3) When Y=1000, the induced consumption is 0.85*1000 = 850 4) If income is increased to 3000, the total consumption is C = 600 + 0.85*3000 = 3150 5) When income is 1000, the autonomous consumption is still 600.
