What is the Inflationary Gap

Expert's answer

Find macroeconomic equilibrium, when total demand=total supply

AD=AS

P=48-2Y=8

Y (actual GDP) =20

When actual GDP is above the potential GDP the economy has positive output gap, also called as inflationary gap.

Inflationary Gap = Actual GDP- Potential GDP=20-16=4
