Transcript

  • 1. Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply Chapter 31
  • 2. Short-Run Economic Fluctuations
    • Economic activity fluctuates from year to year.
      • In most years production of goods and services rises.
      • On average over the past 50 years, production in the U.S. economy has grown by about 3 percent per year.
      • In some years normal growth does not occur, causing a recession.
  • 3. Short-Run Economic Fluctuations
    • A recession is a period of declining real GDP, falling incomes, and rising unemployment.
    • A depression is a severe recession.
  • 4. Three Key Facts About Economic Fluctuations
    • Economic fluctuations are irregular and unpredictable.
      • Fluctuations in the economy are often called the business cycle .
    • Most macroeconomic variables fluctuate together.
    • As output falls, unemployment rises.
  • 5. (a) Real GDP 1965 1970 1975 1980 1985 1990 1995 2,500 3,000 3,500 4,000 4,500 5,000 5,500 6,000 6,500 $7,000 A Look At Short-Run Economic Fluctuations Recessions Billions of 1992 Dollars Real GDP
  • 6. Three Key Facts About Economic Fluctuations
    • Most macroeconomic variables fluctuate together.
      • Most macroeconomic variables that measure some type of income or production fluctuate closely together.
      • they fluctuate by different amounts.
  • 7. (b) Investment Spending Billions of 1992 Dollars 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 1,000 $1,100 1965 1970 1975 1980 1985 1990 1995 A Look At Short-Run Economic Fluctuations Recessions Investment spending
  • 8. Three Key Facts About Economic Fluctuations
    • As output falls, unemployment rises.
      • Changes in real GDP are inversely related to changes in the unemployment rate.
      • During times of recession, unemployment rises substantially.
  • 9. (c) Unemployment Rate 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 1965 1970 1975 1980 1985 1990 1995 A Look At Short-Run Economic Fluctuations Recessions Unemployment rate Percent of Labor Force
  • 10. How the Short Run Differs From the Long Run
    • Most economists believe that classical theory describes the world in the long run but not in the short run.
      • Changes in the money supply affect nominal variables but not real variables in the long run.
      • The assumption of monetary neutrality is not appropriate when studying year-to-year changes in the economy.
  • 11. The Basic Model of Economic Fluctuations
    • Two variables are used to develop a model to analyze the short-run fluctuations.
      • The economy’s output of goods and services measured by real GDP.
      • The overall price level measured by the CPI or the GDP deflator.
  • 12. The Basic Model of Economic Fluctuations Economist use the model of aggregate demand and aggregate supply to explain short-run fluctuations in economic activity around its long-run trend.
  • 13. The Basic Model of Economic Fluctuations
    • The aggregate demand curve shows the quantity of goods and services that households, firms, and the government want to buy at each price level.
  • 14. The Basic Model of Economic Fluctuations
    • The aggregate supply curve shows the quantity of goods and services that firms produce and sell at each price level.
  • 15. Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply... 0 Equilibrium output Quantity of Output Price Level Equilibrium price level Aggregate supply Aggregate demand
  • 16. The Aggregate Demand Curve
    • The four components of GDP (Y) contribute to the aggregate demand for goods and services.
    • Y = C + I + G + NX
  • 17. The Aggregate-Demand Curve... 0 Quantity of Output Price Level Aggregate demand P 1 Y 1 Y 2 P 2 2. …increases the quantity of goods and services demanded. 1. A decrease in the price level...
  • 18. Why the Aggregate Demand Curve Is Downward Sloping
    • The Price Level and Consumption: The Wealth Effect
    • The Price Level and Investment: The Interest Rate Effect
    • The Price Level and Net Exports: The Exchange-Rate Effect
  • 19. The Price Level and Consumption: The Wealth Effect
    • A decrease in the price level makes consumers feel more wealthy, which in turn encourages them to spend more.
    • This increase in consumer spending means larger quantities of goods and services demanded.
  • 20. The Price Level and Investment: The Interest Rate Effect
    • A lower price level reduces the interest rate, which encourages greater spending on investment goods.
    • This increase in investment spending means a larger quantity of goods and services demanded.
  • 21. The Price Level and net Exports: The Exchange-Rate Effect
    • When a fall in the U.S. price level causes U.S. interest rates to fall, the real exchange rate depreciates, which stimulates U.S. net exports.
    • The increase in net export spending means a larger quantity of goods and services demanded.
  • 22. Why the Aggregate Demand Curve Might Shift
    • The downward slope of the aggregate demand curve shows that a fall in the price level raises the overall quantity of goods and services demanded.
    • Many other factors, however, affect the quantity of goods and services demanded at any given price level.
    • When one of these other factors changes, the aggregate demand curve shifts.
  • 23. Why the Aggregate Demand Curve Might Shift
    • Shifts arising from Consumption
    • Shifts arising from Investment
    • Shifts arising from Government Purchases
    • Shifts arising from Net Exports
  • 24. Shifts in the Aggregate Demand Curve... 0 P 1 Y 1 Quantity of Output Price Level Aggregate demand, D 1 D 2 Y 2
  • 25. The Aggregate Supply Curve
    • In the long run , the aggregate-supply curve is vertical .
    • In the short run , the aggregate-supply curve is upward sloping .
  • 26. The Long-Run Aggregate Supply Curve
    • In the long-run, an economy’s production of goods and services depends on its supplies of labor, capital, and natural resources and on the available technology used to turn these factors of production into goods and services.
    • The price level does not affect these variables in the long run.
  • 27. The Long-Run Aggregate- Supply Curve... Price Level 0 Quantity of Output Natural rate of output Long-run aggregate supply P 1 P 2 2. …does not affect the quantity of goods and services supplied in the long run. 1. A change in the price level…
  • 28. The Long-Run Aggregate Supply Curve
    • The long-run aggregate supply curve is vertical at the natural rate of output.
    • This level of production is also referred to as potential output or full-employment output.
  • 29. Why the Long-Run Aggregate Supply Curve Might Shift
    • Any change in the economy that alters the natural rate of output shifts the long-run aggregate-supply curve.
    • The shifts may be categorized according to the various factors in the classical model that affect output.
  • 30. Why the Long-Run Aggregate Supply Curve Might Shift
    • Shifts arising from Labor
    • Shifts arising from Capital
    • Shifts arising from Natural Resources
    • Shifts arising from Technological Knowledge
  • 31. Long-Run Growth and Inflation... Price Level 0 P 1980 Y 1980 AD 1980 LRAS 1980 1. In the long-run, technological progress shifts long-run aggregate supply...

Y 1990 Y 2000 3. …leading to growth in output...
  • 32. Long-Run Growth and Inflation Short-run fluctuations in output and price level should be viewed as deviations from the continuing long-run trends.
  • 33. Why the Short-Run Aggregate Supply Curve Slopes Upward in the Short Run
    • In the short run, an increase in the overall level of prices in the economy tends to raise the quantity of goods and services supplied.
    • A decrease in the level of prices tends to reduce the quantity of goods and services supplied.
  • 34. The Short-Run Aggregate Supply Curve... Price Level 0 Quantity of Output Short-run aggregate supply Y 1 P 1 Y 2 2. reduces the quantity of goods and services supplied in the short run. P 2 1. A decrease in the price level
  • 35. Why the Short-Run Aggregate Supply Curve Slopes Upward in the Short Run
    • The Misperceptions Theory
    • The Sticky-Wage Theory
    • The Sticky-Price Theory
  • 36. The Misperceptions Theory
    • Changes in the overall price level temporarily mislead suppliers about what is happening in the markets in which they sell their output:
    • A lower price level causes misperceptions about relative prices.
      • These misperceptions induce suppliers to decrease the quantity of goods and services supplied.
  • 37. The Sticky-Wage Theory
    • Nominal wages are slow to adjust, or are “sticky” in the short run:
      • Wages do not adjust immediately to a fall in the price level.
      • A lower price level makes employment and production less profitable.
      • This induces firms to reduce the quantity of goods and services supplied.
  • 38. The Sticky-Price Theory
    • Prices of some goods and services adjust sluggishly in response to changing economic conditions:
      • An unexpected fall in the price level leaves some firms with higher-than-desired prices.
      • This depresses sales, which induces firms to reduce the quantity of goods and services they produce.
      • Menu Cost
  • 39. Why the Aggregate Supply Curve Might Shift
    • Shifts arising from Labor
    • Shifts arising from Capital
    • Shifts arising from Natural Resources.
    • Shifts arising from Technology.
    • Shifts arising from the Expected Price Level.
  • 40.
    • An decrease in the expected price level reduces the quantity of goods and services supplied and shifts the short-run aggregate supply curve to the left.
    • A increase in the expected price level raises the quantity of goods and services supplied and shifts the short-run aggregate supply curve to the right.

  • 43. Shifts in Aggregate Demand
    • In the short run, shifts in aggregate demand cause fluctuations in the economy’s output of goods and services.
    • In the long run, shifts in aggregate demand affect the overall price level but do not affect output.
  • 44. An Adverse Shift in Aggregate Supply
    • A decrease in one of the determinants of aggregate supply shifts the curve to the left:
      • Output falls below the natural rate of employment.
      • Unemployment rises.
      • The price level rises.
  • 45. An Adverse Shift in Aggregate Supply... Long-run aggregate supply Short-run aggregate supply, AS 1 0 Aggregate demand A Y 1 P 1 1.

  • 46. Stagflation
    • Adverse shifts in aggregate supply cause stagflation —a combination of recession and inflation.
      • Output falls and prices rise.
      • Policymakers who can influence aggregate demand cannot offset both of these adverse effects simultaneously.
  • 47. Policy Responses to Recession
    • Policymakers may respond to a recession in one of the following ways:
      • Do nothing and wait for prices and wages to adjust.
      • Take action to increase aggregate demand by using monetary and fiscal policy.

  • 49. The Effects of a Shift in Aggregate Supply
    • Shifts in aggregate supply can cause stagflation – a combination of recession and inflation.
    • Policymakers who can influence aggregate demand cannot offset both of these adverse effects simultaneously.

  • 64. Summary
    • All societies experience short-run economic fluctuations around long-run trends.
    • These fluctuations are irregular and largely unpredictable.
    • When recessions occur, real GDP and other measures of income, spending, and production fall, and unemployment rises.
  • 65. Summary
    • Economists analyze short-run economic fluctuations using the aggregate demand and aggregate supply model.
    • According to the model of aggregate demand and aggregate supply, the output of goods and services and the overall level of prices adjust to balance aggregate demand and aggregate supply.
  • 66. Summary
    • The aggregate-demand curve slopes downward for three reasons: a wealth effect, an interest rate effect, and an exchange rate effect.
    • Any event or policy that changes consumption, investment, government purchases, or net exports at a given price level will shift the aggregate-demand curve.
  • 67. Summary
    • In the long run, the aggregate supply curve is vertical.
    • The short-run, the aggregate supply curve is upward sloping.
    • The are three theories explaining the upward slope of short-run aggregate supply: the misperceptions theory, the sticky-wage theory, and the sticky-price theory.
  • 68. Summary
    • Events that alter the economy’s ability to produce output will shift the short-run aggregate-supply curve.
    • Also, the position of the short-run aggregate-supply curve depends on the expected price level.
    • One possible cause of economic fluctuations is a shift in aggregate demand.
  • 69. Summary
    • A second possible cause of economic fluctuations is a shift in aggregate supply.
    • Stagflation is a period of falling output and rising prices.
