The government notices that there is an output gap and decides to increase government spending with a stimulus package of $4 trillion in hopes that it will spur growth and stop unemployment.

1. What is the new level of GDP (as determined by aggregate expenditure)?

2 Calculate the Keynesian Multiplier.

The price level now adjusts to get us to a new short-run equilibrium.
