12-2. Consider the table below when answering the following questions. For this hypothetical economy, the marginal propensity to save is constant at all levels of real GDP, and investment spending is autonomous. There is no government. (See pages 253–263.)
12-4. Calculate the multiplier for the following cases.
(See page 267.)
a. MPS = 0.25
b. MPC = 5/6
c. MPS = 0.125
d. MPC = 6/7
12-6. The marginal propensity to consume is equal to 0.80. An increase in household wealth causes autonomous consumption to rise by $10 billion.
