Each factor’s marginal product is proportional to its average product: The Cobb-Douglas Production Function : The Cobb-Douglas Production Function The Cobb-Douglas production function has constant factor shares: ? = capital’s share of total income: capital income = MPK x K = ? Y labor income = MPL x L = (1 – ? )Y Growth in real wages due to productivity Slide 15: Figure 3.5 The Ratio of Labor Income to Total IncomeMankiw: Macroeconomics, Sixth EditionCopyright © 2007 by Worth Publishers Demand for Goods and Service : Demand for Goods and Service Y = C + I + G + NX Assume NX = 0 Consumption : Consumption C = C(Y-T) Y-T = Disposable Income MPC = Marginal Propensity to Consume MPC = ?C/?Y The consumption function : The consumption function Investment : Investment I = I(r) Nominal and Real Interest Rates r = real interest rate Cost of borrowing Opportunity cost of own funds The investment function : The investment function Government : Government _ G = G (exogenous) _ T = T (exogenous) Transfers not included in G Equilibrium : Equilibrium _ _ _ _ Y = C(Y – T) + I(r) + G Only variable is r Real rate adjusts to equilibrate markets Full employment model Factor markets clear Supply and Demand for Loanable Funds : Supply and Demand for Loanable Funds Y – C – G = I Y – C – G = National Saving (Y – C – T) + (T – G) = I (Y – C – T) = Private Saving (T – G) = Public Saving _ _ _ _ Y – C(Y – T) – G = I(r) _ S = I(r) Interest rate adjusts to equate supply and demand for loanable funds Loanable funds supply curve : Loanable funds supply curve National saving does not depend on r, so the supply curve is vertical. Loanable funds market equilibrium : Loanable funds market equilibrium Real interest rate : Real interest rate Equilibrates loanable funds market Equilibrates goods market Loanable Funds Market : Loanable Funds Market Increase in government purchases or tax cut Reduces public saving – r increases Investment crowded out CASE STUDY The Reagan Deficits : CASE STUDY The Reagan Deficits Reagan policies during early 1980s: increases in defense spending: ?G > 0 big tax cuts: ?T < 0 According to our model, both policies reduce national saving: 1. The Reagan deficits, cont. : 1. The Reagan deficits, cont. I1 2. …which causes the real interest rate to rise… I2 3. …which reduces the level of investment. 1. The increase in the deficit reduces saving… Are the data consistent with these results? : Are the data consistent with these results? variable 1970s 1980s T – G –2.2 –3.9 S 19.6 17.4 r 1.1 6.3 I 19.9 19.4 T–G, S, and I are expressed as a percent of GDP All figures are averages over the decade shown.
