Example text

Figure 3 graphs the time structure of public debt per head, and figure 4 that of the tax per head. Last but not least we assume that the government adjusts both its purchases per head and its deficit per head. Again it does so as to defend full employment all the time. Derme w = g - b and let w = const. Then the short-run equilibrium can be described by a system of three equations: y = c(y - w) + i + g (13) d =g-w-nd (14) t =w+rd (15) In this case d, g and t are endogenous. The present model is isomorphic to the one we have just studied before, cf.

Originally the economy is in the steady state. Let the budget be balanced, so there is no public debt. Government purchases per head and the tax per head are invariant. The same holds for output per head. Then, suddenly, investment per head comes down. Instantaneously, to counteract this, the government increases its purchases and the budget deficit per head, by the same amount respectively. That is why output per head does not respond, so full employment still prevails. The fall in investment per head contributes to the decumulation of capital per head.

At the start, investment per head jumps up. Later on it settles down at an intermediate level. Figure 2 visualizes the accompanying time pattern of capital per head. And the overshooting of investment per head is clearly reflected in the overshooting of output per head, see figure 3. 02, A. 06 and c = 34. Initially the economy is in the steady state. Then autonomous consumption per head rises from 34 to 35. 8. On those grounds, output per head climbs from 100 to 105. In the medium run, capital per head grows from 300 to 309.
