## Study Notes

### IS Curve

- The IS curve summarizes the various combinations of the real interest rate and the level of real income that equilibrium in the goods and services market.
- The IS curve shows the relationship between the real interest rate and the level of real income.

### Effects of Government Spending and Real Interest Rate on IS Curve

- An increase in government spending shifts the IS curve to the right.
- A decrease in the real interest rate increases planned investment spending, leading to an increase in total planned spending and a shift to the right of the IS curve.
- The equation for the IS curve is not provided.
- A decrease in the real interest rate from r1 to r2 increases planned investment.
- The real interest rate and investment spending have a negative relationship on the IS curve.

### LM Curve

- The Theory of Liquidity Preference is concerned with the demand and supply of money.
- A reduction in cash usage due to Covid-19 safety precautions increases the demand for money, leading to an upward shift of the LM curve.
- A decrease in real money demand shifts the LM curve to the right.
- An increase in real interest rates leads to a decrease in the demand for money, shifting the LM curve to the left.

### Effects of Interest Rate and Government Spending on Output

- A decrease in the real interest rate leads to an increase in output.
- An increase in government spending leads to an increase in output.

### Effects of Interest Rate on Investment Spending

- A fall in the interest rate leads to an increase in investment spending.
- A decrease in the real interest rate leads to an increase in planned investment spending.

### IS-LM Model

- An increase in government spending has no effect on the LM curve in the IS-LM model.
- A reduction in cash usage due to Covid-19 safety precautions has no effect on the IS curve in the IS-LM model.
- An upward shift in the LM curve in the IS-LM model leads to an increase in investment spending.
