Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply
There is a very close relationship between Income, Consumption and Saving.
Saving = Income-Consumption
To understand the way Consumption and Saving affects National Income we need
to understand the following toolsConsumption Function
Saving Function
Consumption Function:
Consumption Function is the relationship between Income and Consumption
Break-even Point- It is the level of income for which Income=Consumption
Non-Income Determinants of Consumption
Wealth
Real Interest Rate
Savings Function:
Savings Function is the relationship between Income and Saving. It can be derived
from the Consumption Function

Marginal Propensity to Consume (MPC): The extra amount that people consume
when they receive an extra dollar of disposable income.
Marginal Propensity to Save (MPS): The fraction of an extra dollar of disposable
income that goes to extra saving.
MPC + MPS = 1
Average Propensity to Consume (APC): The percentage of income spent.
Average Propensity to Save (APS): The percentage of Income saved.
APC + APS = 1

The Basic Model of Economic Fluctuations
Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply
Two variables are used to develop a model to analyze the short-run fluctuations.
The economy’s output of goods and services measured by real GDP.
The overall price level measured by the CPI or the GDP deflator.
Economists use the model of aggregate demand and aggregate supply to explain
short-run fluctuations in economic activity around its long-run trend.
The aggregate-demand curve shows the quantity of goods and services that
households, firms, and the government want to buy at each price level.
The aggregate-supply curve shows the quantity of goods and services that
firms choose to produce and sell at each price level.
The Aggregate Demand Curve
The four components of GDP (Y) contribute to the aggregate demand for goods
and services.
Y = C + I + G + NX
