Expert Answer

Step 1

The aggregate demand is the summation of all the demands for the goods and services in the economy. The demand for goods and services can come from mainly four sources which are the main four components of the Aggregate demand. The main components of the aggregate demand are the household consumption expenditure (C), Private Investment expenditure (I), Government expenditure (G) and the Net exports (X-M)

The investment expenditure is considered to be the most volatile component of the aggregate demand. The main components that determine the Investment expenditure are the interest rate and the business confidence.

There is an inverse relation between the rate of interest and the level if in...
