Goods and

Financial Markets Together:
The IS-LM Model

The Goods Market
and the IS Relation
• Equilibrium in the goods market
exists when production, Y, is equal
to the demand for goods, Z.
• In the simple model (in chapter 3),
the interest rate did not affect the
demand for goods. The equilibrium
condition was given by:

Y  C (Y  T )  I  G

Sales (Y). we no longer assume I (investment) is constant • We capture the effects of two factors affecting investment: – The level of sales/income (+) – The interest rate (-) I  I (Y .i) .Investment. and the Interest Rate (i) • Now.

i)  G .The Determination of Output • Taking into account the investment relation above. the equilibrium condition in the goods market becomes: Y  C (Y  T )  I (Y .

. Equilibrium requires that the demand for goods be equal to output.The Determination of Output Equilibrium in the Goods Market The demand for goods is an increasing function of output.

.Deriving the IS Curve The Effects of an Increase in the Interest Rate on Output An increase in the interest rate decreases the demand for goods at any level of output.

. .The IS Curve Shifts of the IS Curve An increase in taxes..

Financial Markets and the LM Relation • The interest rate is determined by the equality of the supply of and the demand for M money:  $ Y L (i) M = nominal money stock $YL(i) = demand for money $Y = nominal income i = nominal interest rate .

Dividing both sides by P (the price level) gives us the equation above. which depends on real M interest rate. the real money supply is equal to the real money demand. and the P  Y L (i) Recall: before. i: income. and the Interest Rate • The LM relation: In equilibrium. . Y. Real Income. we had the same equation but in nominal instead of real terms (nominal income and nominal money supply).Real Money.

Deriving the LM Curve The Effects of an Increase in Income on the Interest Rate .

.. .Shifts of the LM Curve Shifts of the LM Curve An increase in money.

Equilibrium in financial markets (LM). When the IS curve intersects the LM curve. both goods and financial markets are in equilibrium.

Fiscal Policy. the Interest Rate and the IS Curve • Fiscal contraction: a fiscal policy that reduces the budget deficit. – Increasing G or decreasing T • Taxes (T) and government expenditures (G) affect the IS curve. . – Reducing G or increasing T • Fiscal expansion: increasing the budget deficit. not the LM curve.

the Interest Rate and the IS Curve The Effects of an Increase in Taxes .Fiscal Policy.

• Monetary policy affects only the LM curve. . the Interest Rate.Monetary Policy. not the IS curve. and the LM Curve • Monetary contraction (tightening) refers to a decrease in the money supply. • An increase in the money supply is called monetary expansion.

• If government spending increases. crowding out is 5000 – 4500 = 500 . Is there crowding out if government spending increases 1500? How much? • IS0 ------> Y = 4250 – 125i LM -----> Y = 2000 + 250i IS1 ------> Y = 5750 – 125i • Initial equilibrium IS0 = LM at Y = 3500 and r 0 = 6%.Crowding Out • Given Md = 0.25 + 62. • If interest rate is unchanged (6%).5i. IS -----> Y = 4250 – 125i and LM -------> Y = 2000 + 250i. then after government spending increases: Y = 5750 – 125r = 5750 – 125(6) = 5000 So. then IS1 = LM at Y = 4500 and r1 = 10%.
