Alt text for Figure 12.6: In figure 12.6, a dynamic model of AD-AS.
Long description for Figure 12.6: The x-axis is labelled, real GDP (trillions of 2007 dollars).The y-axis is labelled, price level (CPI).6 lines are shown; SRAS1, SRAS2, AD1, AD2, LRAS1, and LRAS2.Line SRAS1 begins in the bottom left corner and slopes up to the top right corner.Line SRAS2 follows the same slope as line SRAS1, but is plotted to the right.Line AD1 begins in the top left corner and slopes down to the bottom center.Line AD2 follows the same slope as line AD1, but is plotted to the right.Line LRAS1 is perpendicular to the x-axis, and begins from the x-axis value 1.7.Line LRAS2 is perpendicular to the x-axis, and begins from the x-axis value 1.9.Line LRAS1 intersects lines AD1 and SRAS1 at point A (1.7, 100).Lines AD2 and SRAS2 intersect at point B (1.94, 104).Points A and B are connected to their respective coordinates on the x and y-axes with dotted lines.Line LRAS1 intersects the line SRAS2 below point A.Line LRAS2 intersects the lines SRAS1 and AD2 just above point B.
-Refer to Figure 12.6.In the dynamic model of AD-AS in the figure above, if the economy is at point A in year 1 and is expected to go to point B in year 2, and no fiscal or monetary policy is pursued, then at point B,
A)the unemployment rate is very low.
B)firms are operating at below capacity.
C)the economy is below full employment.
D)income and profits are falling.
E)there is pressure on wages and prices to fall.
