Assume that an economy's GDP Y=5000. Also assume that the government runs a deficit where tax revenue T=1000 and government expendituresG= 1500. The consumption function is represented by the following equation:

C = 1200+0.25(Y-T) 

Investment depends on the interest rate which is represented by the following equation:

I(r) =1500-50r

Assume that nominal money grows at 3%, the demand for real money balances is represented by the following equation:

(m/p)D = 0.2Y-120i
