b)
c)
d)
e)

2. All of the following will cause the
aggregate demand curve to shift EXCEPT:
a)
b)
c)
d)
e)
Change in consumer income
Change in price level
A decrease in government spending
An increase in net exports
An increase in net imports
3. Which of the following factors will shift
the aggregate supply curve to the right?
a)
b)
c)
d)
e)
An increase in productivity
Increased wages for workers
An increase in government regulations
Consumer income increases
None of the above
4. Other things being equal, a shift of the
aggregate supply curve to the left involves all of
the following EXCEPT:
a) An increase in government regulation
b) A decrease in workers’ wages
c) A decrease in the labor force
d) An increase in taxes
e) A decrease in productivity
5. The interest rate effect suggests:
a) A decrease in the money supply will increase interest
rates
b) An increase in the price level will decrease the demand for
money
c) An increase in the price level will lead consumers and
businesses to borrow more money, which increases the
interest rate
d) A decrease in the price level will lead consumers and
businesses to borrow more money, which increases the
interest rate
e) An increase in the price level will lead consumers and
businesses to borrow less money, which increases the
interest rate
