1. Assume there are 2 people Xavier with a Marginal propensity to consume (MPC) of 80% and Francis with a Marginal Propensity to save (MPS) of 10%. Xavier enjoys life and has a minimum consumption of \$10,000 without any income, while Francis is more modest, with a minimum consumption of \$7,500 without any income.
1. Demonstrate and explain the income-expenditure model for Xavier and Francis on separate graphs with income ranging from 0 to \$100,000 in \$20,000 increments.
2. Compare the minimum income levels where savings begins for Xavier and Francis.
3. How does the difference in MPC affect the economies for each state?
4. If the government decides to take all savings above \$2,000, is this fair to Xavier? Francis? e. How might this change their behavior? How is this relevant to discussions about wealth inequality? How are individual choices relevant to wealth inequality?

Step 1

4.) The above government policy is not fair to Xavier but on the other hand, is fair to Francis. This conclusion is based on autonomous consumption and over their attributes. Autonomous consumption of Xavier is \$10000 that is he can consume at a zero level of inc...
