 I. Macro Equilibrium




As prices drop, the amount of real gross domestic product purchased (AD) increases.  AD = C + I + G + XN   Like all demand curves, AD increases to the right  and decreases to the left. Will this cause continued sloe growth in AD and resulting GDP?






III. Aggregate supply (AS) 






Like all supply curves, AS increases to the right and
decreases to the left. Will less investment affect
the rate AS increases?

IV. Static equilibrium AD/AS intersect   

V. Dynamic equilibrium depicts changes in  AD and AS over time

A. GDP grows to Q'. B. Prices increase to P'.
