2) It is the year 2112. The Solar Federation has recently established its first interstellar colony on the
planet Centauri. The planet has the atmosphere and resources to support life they just need labor to
produce output and money (called the “Cent," after Centauri) to keep track of transactions. Things
were rolling along nicely until the newly clected Chancellor of the Solar Federation signed legislation
declaring the Centauri currency void as legal tender and shutting down all investment activity on
Centauri. Thus was an enormous chunk of Centauri citizens' wealth vaporized.
You have been hired by the Centauri government to help resolve the resulting planet-wide depression.
Good thing you'll take an IOU.
The following table describes the current state of the Centauri economy:

Expert Answer

Step 1

*Solving only parts a and b as mentioned.

Initial equilibrium is where aggregate demand (AD) is equal to aggregate supply (AS) - Y.

Equating: Y = AD

Y = 0.75 (Y-T) +G

Now, for T = 60 cents and G = 205 cents

Y = 0.75(Y-60) + 205

Y = 640

a) Now, if there is a change in taxes that is ta...
