## What is the value of multiplier when MPS is zero?

MPS = , multiplier = infinity; MPS = . 4, multiplier = 2.5; MPS = . 6, multiplier = 1.67; MPS = 1, multiplier = 1.

## When MPC is zero the value of investment multiplier will also be zero?

When Marginal Propensity to Consume is zero, the value of investment multiplier will be **1** (not zero).

## What is K when MPS is zero?

If MPS= 0, then MPC =1- MPS = 1- 0 = 1. So, **Multiplier(k) = 1/ (1-MPC)**

## Why can’t MPS be negative?

True, since MPS – ΔS/ΔY, The individual may at the most spend the entire ΔY so that Δ 4=0. So, MPS can at the most be zero.

## What is the value of multiplier?

A multiplier refers to an economic factor that, when applied, amplifies the effect of some other outcome. A multiplier value of **2x** would therefore have the result of doubling some effect; 3x would triple it.

## What will be the value of multiplier if MPC and MPS are equal?

If MPC and MPS are equal value of multiplier is **2**.

## What will happen to multiplier when MPC is greater than 1?

When we observe an MPC that is greater than one, it means that **changes in income levels lead to proportionately larger changes in the consumption of a particular good**. … These goods are thought to be non-essential or “luxury goods,” as demand for these goods is more volatile than demand for essential goods and services.

## Does consumption depends on investment in the economy?

distinguish between autonomous and induced investment. aggregate consumption of all **depends on the total income generated in the economy**. When the total income of the economy increases total consumption of the economy will also increases.

## What is the formula of investment multiplier?

The ratio of ΔY to ΔI is called the investment multiplier. It can be derived, as follows, from the equilibrium condition (Y = C + I + G) together with the consumption equation (C = a + bY). … This equation describes the new equilibrium, once the economy has adjusted to the increase in the level of investment.

## Why MPC is always less than 1?

Mind, MPC is always greater than zero (MPC > 0) and less than 1 (MPC < 1) because **additional consumption (∆C) is less than additional income (∆Y)**. Higher MPC implies increase in consumption demand. According to Keynes, ‘Demand creates its own supply.

## Can MPC or MPS ever be negative?

**No, neither MPS nor MPC can ever be negative** because MPC is the ratio of change in the consumption expenditure and change in the disposable income. In other words, MPC measures how consumption will vary with the change in income.

## What is the maximum value of MPS?

Maximium value of MPS is **1** which can be achieved when all of the additional income is saved.
