Question;Part A 1. The long-run aggregate supply curve can never shift (Points:2)FalseThe long-run aggregate supply curve can be shifted, when the factors of production change in quantity. Example: number of available workers or labor hours in the long run2. The Keynesian portion of the short-run aggregate supply (SAS) curve would be relevant during a recessionary situation (Points:2)TrueIn recession, the Real GDP reduces but the price remains constant. This is seen in the Keynesian region of Short run aggregate supply curve.3. The short-run aggregate supply (SAS) curve slopes upward because households spend more as their incomes increase (Points:2)FalseReason: SAS curve slopes upward because a rise in the price level with no change in costs induces firms to increase production. Again, a rise in the price level, with other things remaining the same, decreases the real value of money and raises the interest rate. Faced with a higher interest rate, people borrow less and spend less.4. Either a decrease in the nominal money supply by the Federal Reserve, all else held constant, or an increase in the price level, all else held constant, will shift the aggregate demand curve to the left (Points:2)FalseSince money supply is a supply phenomenon so it doesn?t impact the aggregate demand curve. Aggregate demand curve shifts because of changes in Government spending, interest rate, Net exports and Disposable income.5. Stagflation occurs when the aggregate demand (AD) curve shifts out on the upward sloping portion of the short-run aggregate supply (SAS) curve (Points:2)FalseStagflation occurs when a negative supply shock (sudden supply decrease) raise prices and shift the aggregate supply curve to the left.Part BEvaluate whether each of the following statements is true or false. Explain your answer and provide supporting rationale, using graphs to support your answer. You can create graphs by hand and take pictures and upload them with your answers, or you may use Word or Excel, and upload the file created by these software packages.A) If the real money demand is greater than the real money supply, interest rates must rise to reach equilibrium in the money market as institutions sell bonds to obtain more money.B) The federal government?s control of the money supply, which influences interest rates, is the primary tool that policy makers use to impact the macro economy.C) A decrease in the reserve requirement decreases the money supply because banks have fewer reserves.D) The real money demand curve shows how households and businesses change their spending in response to changes in the interest rate.E) Both an increase in the nominal money supply by the Federal Reserve and an increase in the price level will cause the real money supply curve to shift to the right.Write a 1000-word paper that includes your answers to both Part 1 and Part 2 of the assignment.You must use three outside sources in addition to your textbook, these sources may include scholarly sources, credible newspapers, trade journals, and/or websites.
