The level of GDP, the overall price level, and the level of employment
—three chief concerns of macroeconomists—are influenced by events
in three broadly defined “markets”:

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

 FIGURE III.1 The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

We build up the macroeconomy slowly.
In Chapters 8 and 9, we examine the market for goods and services.

In Chapters 10 and 11, we examine the money market.
Then in Chapter 12, we bring the two markets together, in so doing explaining the links between
aggregate output (Y) and the interest rate (r), and derive the aggregate demand curve.
In Chapter 13, we introduce the aggregate supply curve and determine the price level (P).
We then explain in Chapter 14 how the labor market fits into the macroeconomic picture.

aggregate output The total quantity of goods and services produced
(or supplied) in an economy in a given period.

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

aggregate income The total income received by all factors of
production in a given period.

In any given period, there is an exact equality between aggregate output
(production) and aggregate income. You should be reminded of this fact
whenever you encounter the combined term aggregate output (income) (Y).

aggregate output (income) (Y) A combined term used to remind you
of the exact equality between aggregate output and aggregate income.

consumption function The relationship between consumption and income.

individual household shows the

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

To explain aggregate spending behavior, economists speculate
that an increase in aggregate income in a given period will result in
an increase in aggregate consumption in all of the following
instances, except:
a.
When household wealth increases.
b.
When interest rates rise.
c.
When households form positive expectations about the
future.
d.
None of the above. In all of the cases above, aggregate
consumption will rise.

The Keynesian Theory of Consumption
With a straight line consumption curve, we can use the following equation to
describe the curve:
C = a + bY

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

 FIGURE 8.2 An Aggregate
Consumption
Function
The aggregate
consumption function

shows the level of aggregate
consumption at each level of
aggregate income.
The upward slope indicates that
higher levels of income lead to
higher levels of consumption
spending.

identity Something that is always true.
marginal propensity to save (MPS) That fraction of a change in income that
is saved.
MPC + MPS ≡ 1

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

Because the MPC and the MPS are important concepts, it may help to review
their definitions.
The marginal propensity to consume (MPC) is the fraction of an increase in
income that is consumed (or the fraction of a decrease in income that comes
out of consumption).
The marginal propensity to save (MPS) is the fraction of an increase in income
that is saved (or the fraction of a decrease in income that comes out of saving).

The Keynesian Theory of Consumption
 FIGURE 8.3 The Aggregate
Consumption Function Derived from the
Equation C = 100 + .75Y

In this simple consumption function,
consumption is 100 at an income of
zero.
As income rises, so does
consumption.
For every 100 increase in income,
consumption rises by 75.
The slope of the line is .75.

The Keynesian Theory of Consumption
 FIGURE 8.4 Deriving the Saving Function
from the Consumption Function in Figure 8.3

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

Because S ≡ Y – C, it is easy to derive the
saving function from the consumption
function.
A 45° line drawn from the origin can be
used as a convenient tool to compare
consumption and income graphically.
At Y = 200, consumption is 250.
The 45° line shows us that consumption is
larger than income by 50.
Thus, S ≡ Y – C = −50.
At Y = 800, consumption is less than
income by 100.
Thus, S = 100 when Y = 800.

The Keynesian Theory of Consumption
Other Determinants of Consumption
The assumption that consumption depends only on income is obviously
a simplification.

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

In practice, the decisions of households on how much to consume in a
given period are also affected by their wealth, by the interest rate, and
by their expectations of the future.
Households with higher wealth are likely to spend more, other things
being equal, than households with less wealth.

E C O N O M I C S I N PRACTI C E
Behavioral Biases in Saving Behavior

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

Economists have generally
assumed that people make their
saving decisions rationally, just as
they make other decisions about
choices in consumption and the
labor market.
Saving decisions involve thinking
about trade-offs between present
and future consumption.
Recent work in behavioral
economics has highlighted the role of psychological biases in saving behavior
and has demonstrated that seemingly small changes in the way saving
programs are designed can result in big behavioral changes.

Planned Investment (I)
planned investment (I) Those additions to capital stock and
inventory that are planned by firms.
actual investment The actual amount of investment that takes
place; it includes items such as unplanned changes in inventories.

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

 FIGURE 8.5 The Planned Investment
Function

For the time being, we will assume
that planned investment is fixed.
It does not change when income
changes, so its graph is a
horizontal line.

The Determination of Equilibrium Output (Income)
equilibrium Occurs when there is no tendency for change. In
the macroeconomic goods market, equilibrium occurs when
planned aggregate expenditure is equal to aggregate output.

PART III The Core of Macroeconomic Theory

planned aggregate expenditure (AE) The total amount the
economy plans to spend in a given period. Equal to
consumption plus planned investment: AE ≡ C + I.

Y>C+I
aggregate output > planned aggregate expenditure
C+I>Y
planned aggregate expenditure > aggregate output

Equilibrium occurs when
planned aggregate expenditure
and aggregate output are equal.
Planned aggregate expenditure
is the sum of consumption
spending and planned
investment spending.
