Aggregate Supply Curve • Firms normally purchase K&L at fixed price (w & r, or MPL & MPK) in the SR. Thus, higher selling prices make production more profitable. p *Q ( w r ) * Q i.e.) • Wages account for more than 70% of all inputs. • If wAS (AS shifts in.) • If wAS (AS shifts out.) Shift in AS schedule • If price of K (r or MPK)/AS curve will shift in/out. • Technological breakthrough productivity, thus shifts As curve out. • If w is constant, productivity costs, thus Y. • As LF in both quantity and quality, and as the K stockthrough I, AS will shift out, more output (Y or Q) at given price ( p ). General Idea of Profit Max TR pQ (w r )Q TC p w r , Q Q Q Q where (TR TC) 0 Q Q Neoclassical Correction of Recession • Recessionary Gap is caused by inadequate C or by anemic I. • Cyclical unemployment. • Those employed eagerly hang on to the job. natural downward pressure on w w shifts AS curve out.p Recessionary gap. • Deflation erodes the recessionary gap, eventually leading to YF. • Conversely, inflationary gap is corrected by inflation (upward pressure on w & p). Self-Correcting Mechanism • The self-correcting mechanism does operate, if ever, only too slowly and weakly at heavy cost, thus giving rise to the need for gov't stabilization policy (AD vis-a-vis Structural Adjustment: AD). • Self-correcting mechanism works on the AS-side while expansionary/contractionary fiscal/monetary policies work on the AD- side. Critiques of Self-Correcting Mechanism • Deflationary Spiral: Businesses may be reluctant to hire more when they see no prospects of C increasing, as consumers, afraid of depleting their wealth, are unwilling to spend (cf. paradox of thrift). • i = r + r = i = i (Pt Pt-1)/Pt-1 • If (Pt Pt-1) < 0, then r > i Firms’ borrowingIY. • Keynesian Theory of Wage Rigidity (ratchet effect) Self-Correcting Critiques - continued • Psychological Factors/ Efficiency Wage: If wage, workers would either quit or devote less care to work (shirking). bad for morale To prevent moral hazard, pay high wages (efficiency wage). • Less Severe Biz Cycles after WWII: Recessions would not necessarily turn into depressions. Wait out rather than accept the w reductions. • Productivity Concerns: Productivity of individual workers are hard to identify. General wage cut might result in the loss of best employees. Pay efficiency wage to avoid adverse selection. • Minimum Wage Neoclassical Correction of Inflation • Inflation eventually erodes inflationary gap, and brings the economy to the EF. - i.e. • Rising prices purchasing power of consumers’ wealth cut back on C. • X, M . ( Ph/Pf > 1) • Eventually, AD is scaled back to YF, but the economy experience stagflation (p +Y) until the gap is eliminated. • EqmLR established w/ p and Y = YF. Two Types of Inflation • Demand-Pull Inflation: A brief period of stagflation is a natural course of adjustment/correction that comes after a demand-pull inflation. • Cost-Push Inflation or Stagflation: Adverse supply shocks cause a fall in output and acceleration in inflation. Inflation & Multiplier 1 • PH (X-M) & MPC (1 MPC ) • , prices will also rise. This will reduce net iff e , where in f (rh f ) exports (assuming no changee nominalre) and dampen consumer spending. "How much results from D" or "how much of the multiplier chain is cut off by " depends on the slope of the AS curve. • ADtptbtItADt+1 This also cuts the multiplier effect. Fiscal Policy • Fixed (lump-sum) Taxes: e.g.) property taxes do not depend on Y • Yd = YT C Expenditure • Yd = YT C Expenditure • Y Yd C = MPCYd • Since no MPC, FT shifts C down in parallel. Fiscal Policy (cont’d) • Variable Taxes (usually Progressive): • e.g.) personal/corporate income & sales taxes = f(Y) • Yd = YY = (1)Y, where T=Y • Yd = (1)Y C tilts down more sharply @YH than @YL. • Yd = (1)Y C tilts up more sharply @YH than @YL. • Y (1)Y=Yd C = MPC(1)Y = MPCVT Yd • tilts the C as it changes MPC by (1).

Depending on how much spending & taxing G may or Y. • Because they work indirectly via C, multipliers for tax changes are more complicated than multipliers for G. Fiscal Policy - G vs. T Multipliers Y Y • MultiplierGMultiplier G T ,T work indirectly by first changing Yd and then changing C. Since some Yd affects S rather than C, a $1 tax cut doesn’t pack as much punch as $1 of G. • If G & T by equal amounts, the effects don’t cancel out. Instead, Yeqm on AD side . If G and T by equal amounts, Yeqm level on AD side . • Fiscal policies that keep deficit the same (G = T) don’t necessarily keep AD the same. Besides, G=T won't crowd out I. Expansionary Fiscal Policy • Assuming P level is fixed, 3 options to raise GDP in the event of a recessionary gap: • i) G, ii) T or iii) Transfer Payments. e.g.) If YF=$7000, the economy is at recessionary gap w/ YE=$6000. If the Multiplier is 2.5, you can either i) G, ii) T, iii) Transfer Payments or iv) some combination of i) through iii) by only $400 to eliminate the recessionary gap. Contractionary Fiscal Policy • If inflationary gap, 3 options: • i) G, ii) T, iii) Transfer Payments or iv) some combination of i) through iii). • But if the economy is approximately at YF, this could rather cause unemployment. Gov’t Spending or Tax? • Any combo of G and T that produces the same AD, leads to the same Y and p. • Whether to G/T depends on how large a public sector policymakers want. • Advocates of big gov’t seek to AD thru G (to cure recession) and AD thru T (to cure inflation). • Advocates of small gov’t seek to AD by T and AD thru G. Why Balance the Budget? • Crowding Out Effect: G crowds out I i.e.) GT0 gov’t borrowing bank's credit to gov't i (cost of borrowing) I • (GT)ILR Growth. • G by bond sale isn't always preferred to G through T, b/c G by bond sale may lead to crowding-out of I. Should Government Intervene? • Liberal: pro-intervention, discretionary stabilization, coarse tuning is good enough. In the presence of long lags, attempts at stabilizing the economy can actually destabilize it. Democrat platform. • Conservative: min government intervention, automatic stabilizer () through fixed rules, criticize lags and uncertainties of stabilization policy, both fiscal and monetary. Republican platform Should Gov’t Intervene? (cont’d) • Automatic Stabilizer: automatically serves to support AD when it would otherwise sag and to hold down AD when it would otherwise surge ahead. reduces sensitivity to shocks. • e.g.) income tax, unemployment insurance, etc. multiplier. Banking & Monetary Policy • Definition of Money – Medium of Exchange – Unit of Account – Store of Value • Evolution of Money – Barter System: double coincidence of wants. – Commodity Money: intrinsic value (G&S coins) – Fiat Money: no intrinsic value, but backed • i) fully by gold & silver of equal value held in the issuer’s vault (full-bodied paper money) • ii) partially by gold & silver (19C bank notes) • iii) only by confidence (present day) Measuring Quantity of Money • M1 (Completely liquid) = Currency + Checkable Deposit balances in banks and savings institutions • M2 (liquid < M1) = M1 + Savings Account balances + shares in MMMF + small time deposits (CD) • M3 = M2 + large time deposits (CD) • Near Moneys: Liquid assets that are close substitutes for money, but not included in MS (e.g. short-term government bonds) – Liquidity refers to the ease w/ which it can be Money & K Markets and Banking • Money Market: Short-term, highly-liquid debt securities • Capital Market: Long-term debts & stocks • Fractional Reserve Banking: min reserve ratio required in the vault, while bank can – pursue profit by accepting deposits @ low i, but charge high i to loans. – have discretion over Ms. – be exposed to runs. • Bank Regulation – Deposit Insurance: e.g. FDIC Bank’s Balance Sheet Assets Liabilities & Net Worth Assets Liabilities Reserves @20% RR $ 1,000,000 Checking Deposits $ 5,000,000 Loans Outstanding 4500000 (4000000+N.W.)

(when the initial deposit is exhausted in loans.) • Since balance sheets must balance, the sum of all newly created assets (reserves + loans) must equal the sum of all newly created liabilities Oversimplified Deposit Multiplier 1 1 Deposit Re serve Re serve m 1 R • Restrictive Assumptions – Every recipient of cash must redeposit the cash into another bank rather than hold it. – Every bank must hold reserves no larger than the legal minimum. Need for Monetary Policy • During a recession, banks would Ms by excess reserves. Such a contraction of Ms would aggravate recession. • Banks will want to squeeze the max possible Ms out of cash reserves by keeping their reserves at the bare min when D for bank loans is buoyant, are high, and secure I opportunities abound. • During an economic boom, banks Ms, adding undesirable inflationary momentum to the boom. Need for Monetary Policy - continued • Bringing the money into analysis sheds a new light to explaining the biz cycle. – Inflationary gap: not due to exogenous I, but due to Ms money multiplier/ money illusion AD . – T (Fiscal) or i (Monetary) C & I AD . How Fed Controls Money Supply • OMO, Bond Prices, and Interest Rates – Bond sale Pb Rf i, since T-bond yield ≈ Rf return (i). If bond yield is Rf, banks must pay at least bond yield to attract deposit and charge higher i on the loan. – OMO bond purchase/sale not only Ms/ Ms, but also i/i. How Fed Controls MS - cont’d • Discount Rate/Bank Rate – Fed lends to commercial bank in trouble. c- bank’s deposit account w/ Fed Ms. – Fed can influence banks’ borrowing by manipulating i on these loans discount rate. – In the U.S., Fed relies primarily on OMO. Discount rate is secondarily and passively used to keep it in line w/ market i. • Reserve Requirements – R.R./R.R. Ms/Ms. – Fed no longer uses R.R. as a weapon of monetary control. Currently, R.R. is 10%. Money Supply Mechanism • Ms = f(i, Fed policy): i Banks loans & deposits Ms (mitigateMs). • However, the Fed can shift this relationship between i and Ms by employing either OMO, discount rate, or R.R.. • Sensitivity of Ms to i is rather weak. (For policy purpose, fix Ms or i.)

Ms Shift in Broad Context • Although Ms = f(Fed Policy, i), Ms shift by i is not the immediate result of the Fed's monetary policy, but rather caused by the reaction of the commercial banks to the increase in i, - i.e.) i = f(Ms), which must clearly be distinguished from the increase in Ms by Fed's bond buyback. However, since people would rather not borrow at higher i, and rather keep their money in the bank, the intent of the commercial banks are partially cancelled. Ms Shift in Broad Context - cont’d – When Md, there's a natural pressure on i to . – i0 increases to i0' and Ms0 shifts out to Ms1. - i.e.) Ms = f(i). – This i-induced Ms shift is not by Fed, but by commercial banks. (Normally, Fed does it, but then Ms i - i.e.) i = f(Ms). When Fed does that, it's b/c Fed wants to fight the recession, so that Ms i concurs with the Fed's intent. In such a case, Md is assumed fixed.) – Eventually, this will be the new eqm. i Ms0 Ms1 What woul've been i1 if i were allowed to float.
