(a)

To determine

Illustrate the impact of an increase in the housing price on output and employment in a graph.

Explanation of Solution

During 2002 to 2006, the economy experiences an increase in the housing price. An increase in the housing price will increase the wealth of the households. An increase in the wealth will lead to an increase in the aggregate demand for goods and services, which in turn increase consumer spending and the investment. Since consumer spending and investment are the factors determined by the aggregate demand. Hence, an increase in the aggregate demand will cause the aggregate demand curve to shift to the rightward direction. Since the aggregate demand curve will shift to the rightward direction, it implies that the economy operates the real GDP above the potential GDP, which will increase the output and employment...

(b)

To determine

Illustrate the impact of a fall in the housing price on output and employment in a graph.
