reality investment depends on the interest rate IIr The relationship between investment and the interest rate is negative A higher interest rate implies that the cost of borrowing is higher and this would reduce the level of investment With this relationship in place we are now ready to derive the InvestmentSavings IS curve w The IS curve summarizes the relationship between the interest rate and the level of income The curve shows for any given interest rate the level of income that brings the goods market to equilibrium Figure 1 shows how we derive the IS Curve t 1 6 oquot t 103ng Suppose we start with an interest rate of r0 At that given interest rate the goods market is in equilibrium at Y 0 What happens if the interest rate suddenly decreases to r1 At a lower interest rate investment will increase This will shift the planned expenditure curve upward At the new equilibrium point output will be higher at Yr Thus a lower interest rate implies a higher output We have thus derived the IS curve FISCAL POLICIES AND THE IS CURVE 0 Any change in scal policies that increases planned expenditures will result in a rightward shift in the IS curve 0 Any change in scal policies that decreases planned expenditures will result in a leftward shift in the IS curve Figure 2 shows what happens to the IS curve when there is an increase in government expenditure Figure 2 Increase in G causes IS curve to shift to the right Vii I g I Fig 39igr Y 393 Yaw An increase in G results in an upward shift in the planned expenditure curve The new equilibrium output Y is higher at the same level of interest rate As a result the IS curve shifts to the right 11 LM Curve LM Curve The LM curve summarizes the relationship between the interest rate and the level of income The curve shows for any given interest rate the level of income that brings the money market to equilibrium We use the theory of liquidity preference to describe the money market The theory simply says that interest rates adjust to balance the supply and demand for money balances Supply of Real Money Balances gtWe assume that the supply of real money balances is fixed and does not depend on the interest rate P P M is fixed by the Federal Reserve P is fixed since we are looking only at the short run Dem and for Real Money Balances MSZW The demand for money is a function of 2 variables The interest rate and the level of income MPd LrY o MP l and r are negatively related A higher interest rate increases the opportunity cost of holding cash For example if Washington Mutual was paying 50 interest for its savings accounts you would definitely want to hold less cash in your wallet or purse and deposit more in the bank 0 MP l and Y are positively related If you are richer you would want to hold more money because you have greater expenditures rich people buy more goods and services Just ask Oprah Figure 3 shows how the supply and demand for real money balances determines the real interest rate Figure 3 Money Market Equilibrium I ll q quot 3 a Lax Once we understand how the money market equilibrium is determined we can now easily derive the LM curve DERIVING THE LM CURVE What would happen to the money market if there was a sudden increase in Y We know that an increase in Y would result in a greater demand for real money balances thus the money demand curve will shift to the right The new equilibrium will result in a higher interest rate Thus an increase in Y will lead to an increase in r Thus in the LM curve there is a positive relationship between the interest rate and the level of output See Figure 4 Figure 4 Deriving the LM Curve WV i 397 l G quot llrv M Mr Yul M1 X D 9 alt SHIFTS IN THE LM CURVE Monetary policy will cause the LM curve to shift 0 An increase in the money supply will cause the LM curve to shift to the right 0 A decrease in the money supply will cause the LM curve to shift to the left Figure 5 A Decrease in the Money Supply 035 gt Y A decrease in the money supply will shift the money supply curve to the left The resulting equilibrium interest rate is higher at r1 Note that output did not change So for any given level of output there is a higher real interest rate This is captured by the LM curve shifting to the left 111 ISLM Model EFFECT OF FISCAL AND MONETARY POLICIES ON THE ISLM MODEL How does a change in fiscal policy affect the shortrun equilibrium in an economy Example 1 A decrease in G Step 1 Draw the goods market equilibrium A decrease in Gwill cause the planned expenditure curve to shift down resulting in a decrease in equilibrium output Step 2 At any given interest rate output is lower so the IS curve shifts to the left Step 3 At the new shortrun equilibrium where LMIS the real interest rate falls and the output level falls due to the decrease in G LEW Step 4 There is one additional comment We ve seen in Step 3 that output drops because of the decrease in G There will also be an affect on the money market Recall that a lower income level will result in a decrease in the demand for real money balances If we hold money supply constant this will result in further lowering the interest rate With the lower interest rates firms will tend to invest more This increase in investment partially offsets the fall in Y that would have occurred due to the decrease in G The fall in Y is smaller in the ISLMmodel than it is in the GoodsMarketModel How does a change in the money supply affect the shortrun equilibrium Example 2 A Decrease in the Money Supply Step 1 Draw the money market equilibrium A decrease in the money supply will shift the supply curve to the left The new equilibrium interest rate will be higher Step 2 At any given level of output the interest rate is now higher so the LM curve will shift to the left Step 3 At the new shortrun equilibrium where LMIS the real interest rate increases and the output level falls due to the decrease in M aquot Step 4 Again as with scal policy changes a change in monetary policy will also have an effect on the other market the goods market in this case The higher interest rate will lower investment which will decrease planned expenditure and income Y This mechanism monetary transmission mechanism explains how monetary policy affects the income level OTHER SHOCKS TO lSLM 0 Consumer confidence or lack of confidence can affect the IS curve by affecting consumption 0 Any shock that would affect the demand for money For example retailers charging a 5 fee to customers who use credit cards would increase the demand for cash IV From ISLM to Aggregate Demand Aggregate Demand showed the relationship between the price level and the output level We can use the ISLM model to derive this relationship What would happen to the ISLM model if the price level increases Step 1 We know that price does not show up in the goods market but it does show up in the money market as MPS An increase in P will cause the supply of real money balance to get smaller shift to the left As a result the equilibrium real wage will be higher for any given level of output The LM curve will shift to the left 5 3 Q va b Y Y P 9 IA Step 2 Reintroducing the IS curve we see that a leftward shift of the LM curve will result in a higher equilibrium real interest rate and lower real output level I MK KEY CONCLUSION AN INCREASE IN THE PRICE LEVEL WILL RESULT IN A DECREASE IN OUTPUT LEVEL Hence since price and output are negatively related we have derived the AD curve If fiscal or monetary policy change and we hold the price level constant this will lead to a shift in the AD curve 0 An expansionary monetary or fiscal policy will shift the AD curve to the right 0 A contractionary monetary or fiscal policy will shift the AD curve to the left Practice Problems 1 According to the ISLM model what happens to the interest rate income consumption and investment under the following circumstances a The central bank increases money supply b The government increases government purchases c The government increases taxes 2 Consider the economy of Finland The consumption function is C 200 075Y T The investment function is I 200 7 25r G 100 T 100 The money demand function is MPd Y 100r The money supply M 1000 and the price level is 2 a Derive an equation for the IS curve b Derive an equation for the LM curve c Find the equilibrium interest rate and the equilibrium level of income d Suppose that the government purchases are raised from 100 to 150 How much does the IS curve shift What are the new equilibrium interest rate and level of income e Suppose that the money supply is raised from 1000 to 1200 How much does the LM curve shift What are the new equilibrium interest rate and level of income CHAPTER FOURTEEN Stabilization Policy macro Learning

Email jawleeucdavisedu Handout 8 1 Aggregate Demand AD Curve So far in our model we have shown that monetary policy is determined exogenously by the Federal Reserve In other words we have said that the Fed chooses some interest rate arbitrarily and that rate of interest determines shortrun output In actuality the Federal Reserve does not choose interest rates haphazardly but rather the rate it chooses depends usually on the level of current in ation in the economy A monetary policy rule is a rule that tells the Fed what monetary policy rule to pursue for a given economic situation Generally we can make the following statement regarding monetary policy rules 0 The Fed does not like in ation Ifthe level of current in ation is high the Federal Reserve will pursue a tigh monetary policy by raising the interest rate Conversely when the in ation level falls below a target level the Fed will pursue a loose monetary policy and lower the interest rate in order to stimulate the economy 0 We can capture the above monetary policy rule by the following equation 0 R2 f 7rt 7 The Fed has some target interest rate 77 that it expects If the current in ation 7239 exceeds the target interest rate the Fed will raise Rt Ifthe current in ation falls below the target interest rate R must fall to hold the equation The parameter W simply measures how aggressive the Federal Reserve is in ghting in ation Deriving the AD Curve We know that IS curve can be expressed as I 5 RR f We also know the monetary policy rule is R 17 W05 7 Substitute the monetary policy rule into the IS curve to get the equation for the AD curve IQ 54ng 77 Figure 1 shows how the AD curve looks graphically Note that shortrun output is on the horizontal axis while current in ation is on the vertical axis The relationship is negative Looking at the equation for the AD curve you can see that a higher level of current in ation will increase the second term which will reduce shortrun output I The same logic can be applied to a low level of current in ation Figure 1 Recall that we assume that the economy m in rm starts at longrun output so E 0 and E 0 In that case current in ation would have to be 77 according to the equation for the AD curve n mumpmmnacmv23Eamz What s the economic intuition behind the AD curve Assume that current in ation is higher than the target level in ation The Federal Reserve loathing in ation will adopt their tight monetary policy and raise interest rates Higher interest rates as we have seen in earlier chapters reduces investment and hence reduces output Thus high levels of in ation will reduce shortrun output by this reasoning Moving along the AD vs Shifts in the AD Curve 0 Movement along the AD Curve Changes in the in ation rate will cause movement along the AD curve Higher in ation rates will move up along the curve while lower in ation rates will move down along the curve Shifts in the AD Curve Demand shocks will cause a shift in the AD curve Anything that would have caused the IS curve to have shifted will shift the AD curve in the same direction For example we saw how a fall in consumer con dence will shift the AD curve to the le Another factor that will shi D curve is a change in the target in ation 77 If for some reason the target in ation were to be raised this would have the effect of shi ing the AD curve to the right 11 Aggregate Sung Curve Here things are simple The aggregate supply curve is a slightly rewritten Phillips Curve Recall that in Chapter 11 the Phillips Curve was written as A7 GE 6 Where A7 m 7 TLH Plugging in the de nition of A7 to the Phillips Curve we get 7rZ 7 7rH GE Bwhich we can rewrite to get our formula for the AS Curve Figure 2 mmquot n w mm mAumlnuyplymmx n pmquot r The economic intuition as to why the AS curve slopes upward is that as shortrun output exceeds potential output rms struggle to meet demand Firms must run their factories 247 and pay workers more in overtime hours They pass on these costs in the form of higher prices and hence in ation increases III Puttin It All To ether ASAD Model Now that we have nally all the pieces of our shortrun model we can combine the AS and AD curves together Figure 3 shows the ASAD framework Figure 3 The steadystate or longrun Mmquot equilibrium will be where the AS and AD curves intersect We will always assume the economy starts at this point At that point shortrun output is 0 and the in ation rate is the target interest rate an a 0mm 9 s mmrnmma Now that we have the framework in place let s do several examples to see how we use the ASAD model for analysis Example 1 Decline in Oil Prices Step 1 Start at longrun equilibrium We always start where the AS and AD curve intersects At that point we are at potential output E 0 and TL 77 In Figure 4 this is point A Step 2 Identify whether the AS or AD curve will shift A decline in oil prices is a decline in the cost of a major input for many rms Costs will be lower for rms at any production level We would expect rms to pass some of these cost savings to consumers in the form of lower prices Thus at any given level of shortrun output in ation will be lower The AS curve will therefore shift outward to the right Generally the only reason why the AS curve would shift would be either a change in expected in ation 7111 or an in ation shock 6 Step 3 Find the new sh01t run equilibrium Find where the new AS curve intersects the AD curve This is point B Note that at this new shortrun equilibrium shortrun output is higher while in ation is lower than initial levels Step 4 Explain what happens during transition and nd the new long run equilibrium The transition phase is a little tricky to explain conceptually If you have dif cultly understanding the concept please see the alternative explanation below for a more intuitive explanation As we saw in step 2 the economy experiences a negative price shock causing the shift downward of the AS curve until we reach a new shortrun equilibrium point B At that new shortrun equilibrium we have a lower in ation rate 72391 The next year we assume that the in ationprice shock is over and 6 returns to 0 Does the AS curve return immediately to its former position Although 6 returns to 0 we do not return to the original AS curve because expected in ation is now lower Recall that expected in ation is just in ation observed last period But during the last period in ation had fell to 72391 this would cause the AS curve to be lower than it normally would if in ation had not changed AS in Figure 4a The new equilibrium will be where the new AS curve intersects AD curve point C Note that at point C equilibrium in ation 72392 is still below the initial in ation and output is still below potential The following year the same thing will occur Expected in ation is now at 72392 which is still lower than intial The AS curve will be lower than it would normally be AS3 and we ll have a new equilibrium level of in ation and output Point D This process will continue until our expected in ation once again returns to our orignal target in ation rate At that point shortrun output will return back to its potential long run level Figure 4A TI Step 4 Alternative Economic Intuition In this alternative explanation of the transition from the shortrim to the longrim the curves move in the same direction as above Under this line of reasoning the economy cannot remain at this higher shortrim output in the longrim and must return eventually back to potential output What is the economic rationale behind this transition What occurs is that when shortrim output increases to I71 rms nd they must run their factories longer and keep their workers working more hours in order to meet higher demand This increases the input costs for rms and thus they have to raise their prices to re ect their higher production costs This is equivalent to shi ing the AS curve upward to the le This is a gradual process since prices are sticky in the shortrim The AS curve is gradually shi ing to the left The IS curve will stop shifting once we are back at potential output point A Note that the economy will always return to potential output and we return to where we started initially in terms of in ation and shortrim output However the economy did experience a boom temporarily Figure 4B shows the above scenario graphically IMSR A gtB nutB A Example 2 The Fed raises the target in ation rate Step 1 Start at longrun equilibrium This is Point A Step 2 Identify whether the AS or AD curve will shift If the Fed changes increases the target in ation rate the only tool they have at their disposal is monetary policy The Fed will adopt a loose monetary policy lower the Fed Fund rate in order to boost output and hence increase in ation The monetary policy curve will shift down A downward shift in the monetary policy curve will shift the AD curve to the right At this point it might be useful to summarize under what scenarios the AD curve might shi t AD curve will shift to the right if 1 There are positive demand shocks These are shocks that would shift the IS curve to the right 2 Loose monetary policy by the Fed The Fed adopts a loose monetary policy when they are trying to lower interest rates boosting output and hence raising target in ation The AD curve will shift to the left if the opposite occurs Step 3 Find the new shortrun equilibrium In this case shortrun equilibrium will be where the new AD curve intersects the AS curve Point B Step 4 Explain what happens during transition and nd the new longrun equilibrium The new shortrun equilibrium point Point B has higher in ation and higher shortrun output than the initial point A Like example 1 the economy is producing above potential output and that is putting a strain in the resources available to 39rms in meeting this high demand As a result input costs for firms slowly creep up and as they do firms pass these higher costs to their customers The AS curve will slowly
