Therefore the total consumption will be $12.8

9-17. Demand-pull inflation is caused by:
   An increase in aggregate supply.
   An increase in resource costs as an economy's
production capacity is approached.
   An increase in inventories.
→ Excessive aggregate demand in relation to an
economy's production capacity.

    Below $3,000 billion.

Since macro equilibrium falls to the left of the full-
employment level of output, there will be a
recession and cyclical unemployment.

   Too small causing an inflationary gap.
   Too great causing a recessionary gap.

the consumption function and the 45-degree line
dissaving occurs.




9-19. Since macro equilibrium falls to
the left of the full-employment level of
output, there will be a recession and
cyclical unemployment.

9-20. Since macro equilibrium falls to
the right of the full-employment level of
output, there will be an inflationary gap.
