his main thing was to save surplus in good times to even out bad times, so i'd say A, since he was all for government intervention during a depression (whereas C suggests a view of letting it run its course)...
Unless I'm reading it wrong, that question asks what the conventional wisdom of classical economists was, and that was laissez-fair approach or C, right?

c. Legislation making credit harder to obtain

3)Keynes once remarked that, in the long run, were all dead. He was responding to the conventional wisdom of classical economics who aregued that..
c. Depression was only a short run, temporary departure from full employment equilibrium

that's two down at least

2) If the economy were left on its own without the interference of government or the Fed, it would move towards an equiliburium rate that would produce, with only minor interruptions, full employment without inflation. What school supports this view?
c. Monetarism

"Keynes felt that by lowering wage, you were lowering the money in circulation, which would reduce the demand. What would basically happen was that there would be less money available to invest."

it's all about investing in an ecomony, not saving, I'd go with A...

6) Consider the Keynesian consumtion function. If disposable income is greater than the break even level of disposal income, then the households will be:
a. investing

5) If the economy is experiencing unemplyment equilibrium, the Keynesian school recommends that the government:
b) Undertake the fiscal policy to stimulate aggregate demand

keynesians go into deficit spending so businesses are encouraged to increase wages, which in turn increases the money available to invest (ie demand)...

UGH, sorry

2) If the economy were left on its own without the interference of government or the Fed, it would move towards an equiliburium rate that would produce, with only minor interruptions, full employment without inflation. What school supports this view?
a. Classical

monetarism is very involved with inflation etc, classical economics believes controlling the money supply controls inflation... so i only disagree with SS's answer to number 6 from the first batch

1) C
2) A
3) C
4) D
5) B
6) A

and

1) c (choices were c, d, or e... i believe its the first one)

sorry for the couple of corrections in there, this is why taking tests at 2am is a bad idea...

Suck it in guys.... theres a couple more left. ( who has a 100 QUESTION test anyways???) First though, I seriously cant thank you guys ( Smootsmack/That Guy) enough for the help, you're really helping me out bigtime, and anyone else who tried but just dosent know. I really really appreciate the time, so thank you.

The Final Instalment in GMANC711's Economics test.....

23. Suppose Equiliburum GDP is currently 800 Billion and investment is 100 billion. If an increase in the interest rate reduced investment from 100 billion to 75 billlion, and the mpc is .8, the new level of Equiliburm is...
a. 500
b. 600
c. 675
d. 775
e. 800 (all in billions)

25. Assume that an economy's real GDP muliplier is 4. If this economy is in equilibrium at 2,000 billion, then which one of the following actions will bring it to a full employment equiliburm of 1,500 billion?
a. 500 billion spending cut
b. 500 billion spending increase
c. 125 billion spending cut
d. 125 billion spending increase
e. 2,000 billion spending cut

36. The full emplyment level of real GDP can be represented on an aggregate suplly and demand diagram as a:
a. vertical line
b. upward-sloping line
c. horixontal line
d. downard sloping line ( I think its A, but I'm not sure)

40. Suppose the economy is on the classical range of the aggregat supply curve, and has a problem with inflation. According to the Keynesian theroy, which of the following is an appropirate discretionary fiscal policy to use in this situation?
a. A reduction in the money supply
b. Less gov regulation
c. increase in federal spending
d. higher taxes

Well, *I THINK* that is the end; as I have awnsers for most of the other problems. Once again, I cant thank you guys enough for the help with this. Matty, we should start a hw thread. So far Joe Crisp is the only one to help get me an A in a class, so if Smootsmack/Thatguy are succeful, we may have a competition brewing, LOL. Thanks guys.
