(i) Current price level, labeled PL1 (ii) Current output level, labeled Y1 (b) Assume that personal savings in the United States increase. Using a correctly labeled graph of the loanable funds market, show the impact of the increase in personal savings on the real interest rate. (c) Based on the real interest rate change identified in part (b), (i) will interest-sensitive expenditures increase, decrease, or remain unchanged? (ii) what will happen to the rate of economic growth? Explain. (d) Assume that the real interest rate of the euro zone increases relative to the real interest rate of the United States.

(b) Using your graph in part (a), show the effect of an increase in the expected rate of inflation. (c) What is the effect of the increase in the expected rate of inflation on the long-run Phillips curve? (d) Given the increase in the expected rate of inflation from part (b), (i) will the nominal interest rate on new loans increase, decrease, or remain unchanged? (ii) will the real interest rate on new loans increase, decrease, or remain unchanged? (e) Assume that the nominal interest rate is 8 percent.
