# Derive Equation For IS Curve And Draw A Diagram

Question

In an economy, consumption is C = 30 + 1/2 (Y-T); investment is I = 25 - 110 i; tax revenue is T = 20; and government expenditure is G = 20. Y is the level of real output. The demand for real money balances, M/P, is Y i-1. The interest rate is set at 4% (i.e., i = 0.04) by the central bank. The price level, P, is constant at 1.

(a) Derive the equation of the IS curve and roughly sketch it in a diagram.

(b) Roughly sketch the LM curve, and show the short-run equilibrium.

(c) Compute the goods market multiplier.

(d) Compute the short-run equilibrium levels of output, consumption and investment.

(e) If the central bank raised the interest rate to 6%, compute the new level of output.

(f) If G rose to 25, and i remained at 6%, compute the new level of output.

Summary

The question belongs to Economics and it discusses about deriving an equation of the IS curve and drawing a diagram.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
