Lecture 6 and 7:
The Aggregate Expenditures Model
Reference - Chapter 7


1. The factors that determine consumption expenditure and saving. 2. The factors that determine investment spending. 3. How equilibrium GDP is determined in a closed economy without a government sector. 4. What the multiplier is and its effects on changes in equilibrium GDP. 5. How adding international trade affects equilibrium output. 6. How adding the public sector affects equilibrium output. 7. The distinction between equilibrium versus full-employment GDP.

I. Introduction

A. This chapter focuses on the aggregate expenditures model. We use the definitions and facts from previous chapters to shift our study to the analysis of economic performance. The aggregate expenditures model is one tool in this analysis. Recall that “aggregate” means total.

B. As explained in this chapter’s Last Word, the model originated with John Maynard Keynes (Pronounced Canes).

II. Simplifying Assumptions for the Simple Model

A. We assume a “closed economy” with no international trade.

B. No Government. C. Although both households and businesses save, we assume here that all saving is personal.

D. Depreciation and net foreign income are assumed to be zero for simplicity.

E. There are two reminders concerning these assumptions. 1. They leave out two key components of aggregate demand (government spending and foreign trade), because they are largely affected by influences outside the domestic market system.

2. With no government or foreign trade, GDP, personal income (PI), and disposable income (DI) are all the same.

III. The Aggregate Expenditures Model: Consumption and Saving

A. The theory assumes that the level of output and employment…...

Foreign Exchange Market in Trinidad & Tobago

...other countries. Fig. 5 Approximate figure for Oct’15 Import cover Data Sourced from CBTT Data Center 3.6 Balance of Payments As stated in the Budget presentation for 2015 T&T can expect an overall Balance of Payments Deficit for 2015 and a loss in official reserves of US$720M, this data was not available to be analyzed but an assumption can be made that this overall deficit is mainly caused by an increased deficit on the capital and financial account. This is greatly different to the proposed figures for 2014 (see appendix 3) 4.0 NOMINAL AND REAL U.S. EXCHANGE RATE In Fig.6 we see the relationship between Nominal and Real US Selling Rate (see appendix 4) Fig.6 *See appendix for calcualtion *While we are aware that US Inflation and TT Inflation is calculated based on a different basket of goods in determining the Consumer Price Index (C.P.I.), for the purpose of this project, to be able to compare and analyze exchange rates we opt to use headline inflation of both countries in this and our further discussions. The real effective exchange rate is almost always above the nominal exchange rate Fig.6, the main reason for this disparity in exchange rate is the fact that the CBTT maintains a managed float system, where the nominal exchange rate is not solely determined by the forces of demand and supply but rather it is set by the CBTT through their policy of a managed floating system; this therefore is manipulation of......
