First, most modern industrial economies experience few if any falls in prices. Second, when they do suffer price cuts as in Japanit can lead to disastrous deflation. Debt[ edit ] A post-Keynesian theory of aggregate demand emphasizes the role of debtwhich it considers a fundamental component of aggregate demand;  the contribution of change in debt to aggregate demand is referred to by some as the credit impulse. Spending is related to income via:
The real money supply has a positive effect on aggregate demand, as does real government spending meaning that when the independent variable changes in one direction, aggregate demand changes in the same direction ; the exogenous component of taxes has a negative effect on it.
Slope of AD curve[ edit ] The slope of AD curve reflects the extent to which the real balances change the equilibrium level of spending, taking both assets and Classical aggregate demand curve markets into consideration.
An increase in real balances will lead to a larger increase in equilibrium income and spending, the smaller the interest responsiveness of money demand and the higher the interest responsiveness of investment demand.
An increase in real balances leads to a larger level of income and spending, the larger the value of multiplier and the smaller the income response of money demand. The AD curve is flatter the smaller is the interest responsiveness of the demand for money and larger is the interest responsiveness of investment demand.
Also, the AD curve is flatter, the larger is the multiplier and the larger the income responsiveness of the demand for money.
Effect of monetary expansion on the AD curve[ edit ] Aggregate demand curve shifts rightward in case of a monetary expansion An increase in the nominal money stock leads to a higher real money stock at each level of prices. In the asset market, the decrease in interest rates induces the public to hold higher real balances.
It stimulates the aggregate demand and thereby increases the equilibrium level of income and spending. Thus, as we can see from the diagram, the aggregate demand curve shifts rightward in case of a monetary expansion. Aggregate supply curve[ edit ] Main article: Aggregate supply The aggregate supply curve may reflect either labor market disequilibrium or labor market equilibrium.
In either case, it shows how much output is supplied by firms at various potential price levels. The aggregate supply curve AS curve describes for each given price level, the quantity of output the firms plan to supply. The Keynesian aggregate supply curve shows that the AS curve is significantly horizontal implying that the firm will supply whatever amount of goods is demanded at a particular price level during an economic depression.
The idea behind that is because there is unemployment, firms can readily obtain as much labour as they want at that current wage and production can increase without any additional costs e. Firms' average costs of production therefore are assumed not to change as their output level changes.
This provides a rationale for Keynesians' support for government intervention. The total output of an economy can decline without the price level declining; this fact, in conjunction with the Keynesian belief of wages being inflexible downwards, clarifies the need for government stimulus.
Since wages cannot readily adjust low enough for aggregate supply to shift outward and improve total output, the government must intervene to accomplish this result. However, the Keynesian aggregate supply curve also contains a normally upward-sloping region where aggregate supply responds accordingly to changes in price level.
The upward slope is due to the law of diminishing returns as firms increase output, which states that it will become marginally more expensive to accomplish the same level of improvement in productive capacity as firms grow. It is also due to the scarcity of natural resources, the rarity of which causes increased production to also become more expensive.
The vertical section of the Keynesian curve corresponds to the physical limit of the economy, where it is impossible to increase output.
The classical aggregate supply curve comprises a short-run aggregate supply curve and a vertical long-run aggregate supply curve. The short-run curve visualizes the total planned output of goods and services in the economy at a particular price level.
The "short-run" is defined as the period during which only final good prices adjust and factor, or input, costs do not. The "long-run" is the period after which factor prices are able to adjust accordingly.
The short-run aggregate supply curve has an upward slope for the same reasons the Keynesian AS curve has one: The long-run aggregate supply curve is vertical because factor prices will have adjusted.
|Aggregate Demand||Recall that the quantity of real GDP demanded is the sum of real consumption expenditure, Cinvestment Igovernment purchases Gand exports X minus imports M. We write it as follows Recall that the quantity of real GDP demanded is the total amount of final goods and services produced in the United States that people, businesses, governments, and foreigners plan to buy.|
Factor prices increase if producing at a point beyond full employment output, shifting the short-run aggregate supply inwards so equilibrium occurs somewhere along full employment output. Monetarists have argued that demand-side expansionary policies favoured by Keynesian economists are solely inflationary.The AD–AS or aggregate demand–aggregate supply model is a macroeconomic model that explains price level and output through the relationship of aggregate demand and aggregate supply.
It is based on the theory of John Maynard Keynes presented in his work .
Notice that the aggregate demand curve, AD, like the demand curves for individual goods, is downward sloping, implying that there is an inverse relationship between .

vertical. in the classical model, real GDP is determined by. The MPN curve thus is the demand for labor. The Supply of Labor. Aggregate Demand. The classical aggregate demand is based on M = k P Y, where k is a constant because the velocity of money (Veocity of Money, Wikipedia) is fixed.
Supply and Demand for Loanable Funds. The intersection between aggregate demand and aggregate supply is referred to by economists as the macroeconomic equilibrium.
The Classical model and the Keynesian model both use these two curves. Mar 15, · In this video I explain the three stages of the short run aggregate supply curve: Keynesian, Intermediate, and Classical. Thanks for watching.
