Expenditure Plans
The aggregate expenditure model explains
fluctuations in aggregate demand by identifying the
forces that determine expenditure plans.
The components of aggregate expenditure are:
1) Consumption expenditure
2) Investment
3) Government purchases of goods and services
4) Net exports (exports minus imports)
Expenditure Plans
The main factors that influence consumption and saving
are:
1) Real interest rate
2) Disposable income
3) Purchasing power of net assets
4) Expected future income

consumption function shows the
relationship between consumption

Consumption and Saving Plans
Disposable income is either spent on consumption (C)
or saved (S), so
YD = C + S
The relationship between consumption expenditure and
disposable income, with other things remaining the same, is
called the consumption function.
The amount of consumption expenditure that takes place when
people have zero income is called autonomous consumption
expenditure.

MPC AND MPS
Because consumption expenditure and saving exhaust disposable
income, the marginal propensity to consume plus the marginal
propensity to save always equals 1.
ΔC + ΔS = ΔYd
Dividing both sides by DYD
ΔC + ΔS = ΔYd
ΔYd ΔYd ΔYd
MPC + MPS = 1
The Aggregate Expenditure Model
Aggregate planned expenditure is planned consumption
expenditure plus planned investment plus planned
government expenditures plus planned exports minus
planned imports.
Planned consumption expenditure and planned imports
are influenced — and influence — real GDP
The Aggregate Expenditure Model
The aggregate expenditure schedule lists aggregate planned expenditure
generated at each level of real GDP.
Aggregate planned expenditure increases as real GDP increases.
However, only consumption expenditure and imports increase with real
GDP.
Induced expenditure is the sum of the components of aggregate
expenditure that vary with real GDP.
Autonomous expenditure is the sum of the components of aggregate
expenditure that are not influenced by real GDP.

The Size of the Multiplier
The multiplier is the amount by which a change in
autonomous expenditure is multiplied to determine the
change in equilibrium expenditure that it generates.

The Multiplier and the Slope of the AE Curve
The slope of the AE curve determines the magnitude of the multiplier.
The steeper the AE curve, the greater is the increase in induced expenditure
that results from a given increase in real GDP.

Aggregate Expenditure
Aggregate expenditure is the sum of planned amounts
of consumption expenditure, investment, government
expenditures, and exports minus the planned amount of
imports:
AE = C + I + G + X – M
We write the consumption function as:
C = a + bYd
Equilibrium Expenditure
Grouping together terms that involve Y we obtain:
AE = [a + I + G + X] + [b(1 – t) – m]Y

Equilibrium Expenditure
Equilibrium expenditure occurs when aggregate planned
expenditure equals real GDP:
AE = Y
To calculate equilibrium expenditure and real GDP, we
solve the equation for the AE curve and the 45º line for
AE and Y:
AE = A + [b(1 – t) – m]Y
AE = Y
Equilibrium Expenditure
Replace AE with Y in the AE equation to obtain:
Y = A + [b(1 – t) – m]Y
or
Y

1 - [b(1 - t ) - m]
