Ca + Ip + G + (X-M) + MPC(Y-T-t(Y)) = PAE

3. Who does fiscal and monetary policy? What are 2 fiscal policies and 3 monetary policies to correct a situation where the economy
is naturally at AD
but finds itself at AD
, as seen in the graph on the previous page. Briefly explain how each of these policies

Who does fiscal policy: ___Congress with the President of the United States.
1. __Taxation
____When Congress increases the corporate taxes it causes businesses to slow down on the investment side of
things. This also increases cost and growth and prices will fall.
2. __Spending
________The regulation of consumption is a big factor in how businesses will thrive. If you increase
consumption then it slows growth and puts a shortage on investments. It also moves the line to the potential
Who does monetary policy: _Federal Government (Reserve)
1. ___Bonds, Open Market Operations
____Selling bonds decreases money supply which raises interest rates and slows the rate of growth. The money
is taken out of the economy and it hopefully reaches its potential GDP.
2. ___Discount
____They can change the interest rates which can help with spending or help with savings. Raising the rates
causes a decrease in spending and investments. Growth is affected negatively and actual output approaches
potential output.
3. __Reserves
If they raise the reserve requirements then it affects the money supplied to the economy. It raises the demand
and the price of money, interest rates and it slows growth. On the other hand if they lower interest rates then the
money in the economy is spent more on investments and it raises inflation and growth in the economy
