Part A: See lesson no. 6 ( other measure of Income) ....this part is Done !!

Next Part B : Suppose, marginal propensity to consume (MPC) of the economy is 0.90, how

much income will change if taxes are increased by Rs.10 billion. Discuss Please  !!

By increasing or decreasing taxes, the government affects households' level of disposable income (after-tax income). A tax increase will decrease disposable income, because it takes money out of households. A tax decrease will increase disposable income, because it leaves households with more money. Disposable income is the main factor driving consumer demand, which accounts for two-thirds of total demand

for Part B Lecture 26 calculate the tax multiplier my answer is coming Rs. -90 billion

page #15 allthe formulas are given of question no-1 and its (c) parts formula is labour force/adult population*100

for question#2 look at page number 81 of handouts ;)

mano ji thanks 

MPC= dC/dY  where C = consumption , Y = income

so the MPC will decrease as here C is decreasing.According to the formula MPC will increase as the C increases and vice versa

my pleasure  M.Tariq Malik ji and remember me in prayers
