T or F
Expert's answer
C. Increasing government spending by $60 billion while raising taxes $60 billion
multiplicator of government spending=1/MPS=1/(1-MPC)=1/(1-0.75)=4
multiplicator of taxes=-MPC/MPS=-MPC/(1-MPC)=-0.75/(1-0.75)=-3
Increasing government spending by $60 billion will increase GDP by 60*4=240 billion while raising taxes $60 billion will decrease GDP by 60*3=180 billion.aise
As a result, GDP will raise by 60 billion.
