Learning Objectives
 Define the following terms: aggregate demand,
aggregate supply, economy’s potential real
GDP, and macroeconomic equilibrium.
 Distinguish between the aggregate demand
curve and the aggregate supply curve.
 Identify and describe the reasons for downward
slope of the aggregate demand curve.
 Identify and describe the factors that shift the
aggregate demand curve.
 Explain and illustrate graphically the
macroeconomic equilibrium in the short run

The Meaning of Aggregate Demand
Aggregate Demand, AD is the quantity demanded of all final
goods and services (Real GDP) at different price levels. AD can
be calculated by the following equation:
Real GDP = Y = AD = C + I + G + NX
= C + I + G + (X -M)
Where:
C = personal consumption spending,
I = gross private domestic spending,
G = government spending,
NX = net exports of goods and services,
X = exports of goods and services, and
M = imports of goods and services.

The Aggregate Demand Curve
The Aggregate demand, AD curve is downward-sloping,
specifying a negative relationship between the price level as
independent variable and the quantity of real GDP demanded
as dependent variable.

A Change in the Quantity Demanded of the Real GDP: A
Movement along the Aggregate Demand Curve
A change in the quantity demanded of real GDP caused by a change in the price level. It
is shown by a movement along the aggregate demand curve

A Change in Aggregate Demand: Shifts in the
Aggregate Demand Curve
A Change in aggregate demand is the change in the
quantity demanded of real GDP as the change in the
following
factors:
Consumption,
investment,
government spending, and net exports. These factors
will affect the quantity demanded of real GDP at any
given price level.
The aggregate demand curve shifts, when one of
the factors above changes.
10
An Increase in Aggregate Demand
An increase in aggregate demand is represented by an outward shift of
the entire aggregate demand curve. If aggregate demand increases,
greater quantities of real GDP are demanded at each possible price level
for the year.
11
A Decrease in Aggregate Demand
A decrease in aggregate demand is represented by an inward shift of the
entire aggregate demand curve. When aggregate demand decreases, a
less quantity of real GDP is demanded at each possible price level for the
year.
12
Factors that shift the Aggregate Demand Curve
The aggregate demand curve will shift as a result of changes in the following:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Consumption Spending (C);
Investment Spending (I);
Government Spending (G); and
Net Exports (NX).
The AD curve shifts to the right side when aggregate demand increases. However,
the AD curve shifts to the left side when aggregate demand decreases.
13
Factors that shift the Aggregate Demand Curve
1. Consumption Spending (C)
The following factors can cause consumption spending to change:
a) Consumer Wealth;
b) Personal Income Taxes; and
c) Expectations about Future Income, and Inflation.

An increase in government purchases of goods and
services increases aggregate demand. This shifts the
aggregate demand curve to the right
4. Net Exports (NX)

a) Foreign Real Income; and
b) Foreign Exchange Rate.

The Meaning of Aggregate Supply
Aggregate supply, AS is the quantity supplied of all final goods
and services (Real GDP) at different price levels. ). This is
represented by the aggregate production function:
Y = f (N, K, L, T)
Where:
Y = The aggregate supply (Real GDP);
f = depends on;
N = Labor;
K = Capital;
L = Land;
T = The State of Technology.
23
The short-Run Aggregate Supply Curve
The Short-Run Aggregate Supply, SRAS curve is upward-sloping,
specifying a positive relationship between the price level as
independent variable and the quantity supplied of real GDP as
dependent variable.

1 Short-Run macroeconomic Equilibrium
When the quantity demanded of real GDP equals the quantity
supplied of real GDP, the Short-Run macroeconomic equilibrium
occurs
The short-run equilibrium point (n) is the interaction of the AD curve
and SRAS curve. This intersection determines the equilibrium price
level (Pe) and the equilibrium real GDP (Ye).
