Explain equilibrium level of national income using saving and investment approach.

Draw a diagram in support of your explanation.

The equilibrium level of income and output is that level at which planned saving and planned investment are equal. In the diagram equilibrium is at e and equilibrium income is OY.

CBSEClass12 Economic DETERMINATION OF INCOME AND EMPLOYMENT

At an income level OY1, planned savings are greater than planned investment. This means that household’s aggregate expenditure is less than output.as a result inventories increase. Firms, seeing a buildup of unplanned inventories start cutting production, and hence output, income and savings fall. This process continues till planned investments are equal.

At an income level OY2 planned savings are less than planned investment. This means that aggregate expenditure is more than output. Firms seeing a depletion of planned inventories step up production, and hence output and income increase. Savings increase. This process continues till planned savings and planned investments are equal.

 

Draw a straight line consumption curve. From it derive a savings curve explaining the process of derivation in this diagram:

(a) The level of income at which Average propensity to consume is equal to one.

(b) A level of income at which Average propensity to save is negative.

AC is the consumption curve and OA is the consumption expenditure at zero level of income. Income minus investments is savings. When income is 0, the economy’s consumption level is OA. Thus the corresponding level of savings is –OA .so A is the starting point of saving curve .At OB level of income consumption is equal to income so savings are 0 so B1 is another point on saving curve. Joining A and B and extending we get the saving curve S.

  1. The level of income at which APC is equal to one is OB.
  2. A level of income at which APS is negative is the level less than OB.

Explain the working of a multiplier with an example.

Ans. Multiplier tells us what will be the final change in the income, as a result of change in investment. Change in investment results in the change in income. Symbolically:

The working of a multiplier can be explained with the help of the following table which is based on the consumption that is, AI-1000 and MPC=4/5.

PROCESS OF INCOME GENERATION.

As per the table the initial increase in the investment of Rs 1000 there is a total increase in the income by Rs 5000 given MPC=4/5 . Out of this total increase in the income Rs 4000 will be consumed and Rs 5000 be saved. The sum of total increase in income is also derived as: Ay=1000+800-640+512+  infinity. The equilibrium level of income is s 300 core and at this point S (100) =i (100) the equilibrium may necessarily not be at the full employment level.

When saving exceeds planned investment means people are consuming less and spending more as a result AD is less than AS. This will lead to accumulation of more goods with producer .this will make the businessmen to reduce production consequently, output, income & employment will be reduced till the equilibrium level of income.

 

Draw a hypothetical propensity to consume curve from it draw the propensity curve to save curve

Ans. APC=C/Y       APS=S/Y

Propensity to save curve

Is drawn from propensity to consume curve

When Y=C     APC=1

Till that point APS is negative at point's'

When y>c there is a positive saving

CBSEClass12 EconomicDETERMINATION OF INCOME AND EMPLOYMEN

Explain the determination of income and employment with AD and AS. (Give schedule)

AD=C+I

AS=C+S       AS=Y (refers to countries national income)

The equilibrium level of income is determined at a point when AD=AS.

Equilibrium can be achieved at full employment and even at under employment situation. It may not be always at full employment condition in an economy.

CBSEClass12 EconomicDETERMINATION OF INCOME AND EMPLOYME

Ac is the consumption curve and OA is the consumption expenditure at zero level of income. Income minus consumption is saving. When income is 0, the economy's consumption level is OA. The corresponding level of saving is -OA.

So -a is the starting point of saving curve. At OB level of income consumption is equal to income, so saving are zero, so B is another point on saving curve . Join A and B and extend this line to S, AS is the saving curve.

a)   The level of income at which APC is equal to one is OB.

b)   A level of income at which APS is negative OY.

 

HOTS questions

Explain the equilibrium level of income determination with the help of savings and investment curves OR Explain multiplier with a diagram.         

The equilibrium level of national income is that level at which planned saving and planed investment are equal. In the diagram equilibrium is at E and equilibrium income is OY*.

CBSEClass12 EconomicDETERMINATION OF INCOME AND EMPLOYM

At an income level OY, planned savings are greater than planned investment. This means that household’s aggregate expenditure is less than income. As a result inventories increase. Firms, seeing a buildup of unplanned inventories start cutting production, and hence output, income and savings fall. This process continues till planned savings and planned investment are equal. At an income level OY2, planned savings are less than planned investment. This means that aggregate expenditure is more than income. Firms, seeing depletion of planned inventories step up production, and hence output and income increase. Savings increase. This process continues till planned savings and planned investment are equal.

Derive a savings curve from consumption curve with the help of a diagram.

CBSEClass12 EconomicDETERMINATION OF INCOME AND EMPL

 

AC is the consumption curve and OA is the consumption expenditure at zero level of income. Income minus consumption is savings. When income is zero, the economy's consumption level is OA. Thus, the corresponding level of savings is - OA.

So, A1 is the starting point of saving curve At OB level of income consumption is equal to income, so savings are zero. So Bi is another point on saving curve Joining Ai and Bi and extending we get the saving curve S. The level of income at which APC is equal to one is OB A level of income at which APS is negative is the level less than OB.

 

 

Explain the concept of Inflationary gap with the help of a diagram.

ANS:  Inflationary gap is the excess of aggregate demand over and above its level required to maintain full employment equilibrium in the economy. Full employment equilibrium is struct at point E. If the level of  demand of employment increases to AD1, it is the excess of what is required to maintain full employment. This causes inflation. Hence the difference between AD1 and AD (EF) is called inflationary gap .

CBSEClass12 EconomicDETERMINATION OF INCOME AND EM

Deflationary gap is the deficiency of AD required to maintain full employment equilibrium .Fulex ployment equilibrium as struck at point E .however, if the level of demand happens tobe AD , it is short of of its full employment level. Accordingly, deflationary gap occurs to the tune of AD1-AD= FG. 

 

Outline the steps required to be taken in deriving saving curve from the given consumption curve . Use diagram.

ANS:

 Explain the meaning of Underemployment equilibrium . Explain two measures    

   

by which full employment equilibrium will be reached .

ANS:  Underemployment equilibrium refers to the situation where AD= AS but all those who are able to work and willing to work(at the existing wage rate) do not get work.

Figure explain the situation of underemployment equilibrium.

CBSEClass12 EconomicDETERMINATION OF INCOME ANDE

Underemployment equilibrium occurs owing to deficient demand or the lack of aggregate demand(AD). In Figure, deficient demand is equal to FK. Accordingly, this can be addressed by way of increasing AD. Two important measures to raise AD and reach the situation of full employment areas

under:

(i) Public expenditure on public works, public welfare and public investment should be increased. All this will act as an injection of demand into the system and is expected to induce private

expenditure. Accordingly, aggregate demand is expected to rise and the situation of full employment equilibrium will be reached

(ii) Central bank should decrease the repo rate. It is the rate at which the central bank lends money to the commercial banks. A decrease in repo rate lowers the market rate of interest, promoting a rise in demand for credit. An expansion in the demand for credit leads to a rise in aggregate demand. Accordingly, the situation of full employment equilibrium will be reached.

 

Explain the situation of deficit demand in an economy with the help of a diagram.

ANS:  Deficient demand refers to a situation when AD < AS ( corresponding to full employment level in the economy ).

Accordingly , there is a deflationary gap in the economy.

Figure illustrates the situation.

CBSEClass12 EconomicDETERMINATION OF INCOME AND

Full employment level of demand is indicated be AD1 (Intersecting the  line at point F , the point of full employment equilibrium).

If demand level happens to be AD2  , the gap between AD1 and AD2 is equal to FG which is situation of deficient demand.

 

Explain the situation of excess demand in an economy with the help of a diagram.

ANS: Excess demand refers to a situation when AD> S (corresponding to full employment level) Accordingly , there is inflationary gap in the economy.

In figure , full employment requires FM level of aggregate demand . But it happens to be EM as shown in the figure .Accordingly, excess demand is equal to EF , which is known as Inflationary gap.

 

BALANCE OF PAYMENTS

1. Explain Determination of Equilibrium Foreign Exchange Rate with the help of diagram.

The price of a foreign currency in the foreign exchange market, is determined in the same way as the price of a commodity is determined in a market.

It is determined by Demand and Supply of Foreign Exchange. Exchange Rate is Determined – Foreign Exchange Rate of a currency is determined by the forces of demand or supply.  

CBSEClass12 EconomicDETERMINATION OF INCOME AN

Equilibrium Exchange Rate – It is determined at a point where demand and supply of foreign exchange are equal.

OQ= Quantity of US Dollars

There is Inverse Relationship between Price of foreign exchange & Demand for foreign exchange.

High Exchange Rate –Less Demand

Lower Exchange Rate- More demand 

When Foreign Exchange Rate falls there is more demand for Foreign Currency.

US Dollars from Rs. 50 to Rs. 45 which means less Rupees are needed to buy 1 Dollar. Therefore, imports increases.

(ii) It promotes tourisms to Foreign country (as dollar has become cheaper in comparison to Rupees ) .There is direct relationship between supply to Foreign Currency and Price of Foreign Currency, when price increase –supply increase, when price decrease -supply decrease. Therefore, downwards supply when Foreign Exchange Rate increases and supply also increases. US Dollar rises from Rs. 50 to Rs. 60 its supply also increases because home country’s goods (India) become cheaper to Foreign and export increases.
