a. Comprise a market-clearing economy in which output (Y1)depends only on the capital stock (k1) and an exogenous productivity variable (θ1) according to the production function y1 = θ2f(k2). Use a two quadrant diagram with the capital stock, ko on the horizontal axes and consumption, Co on one vertical axis and the real interest rate ro on the other -to depict the steady state equilibrium of the economy. Label the various curves plotted in your diagram.
b.Suddenly, current and expected future values pof I are belived to havr intrested. describe how does thee Steady state to u depicted in 2(a) shift? How does the economy get from the original steady state to the new steady state? (That is, how do consumption, output, the capital stock. And the real intrest rate move, over time, in response to the new information?) What happens to the total value of the stock market as the economy moves from the original steady state to the new steady state?
