MaiHuong Increase in stock market and housing price have indirectly effect on demand
DannyZhou Here comes bubble money.
YOUCANDOIT How come it is not C?
I thought wealth effects bring movement along the AD curve.....i thought AD curve shifts if EXPECTED FUTURE income, inflation or profits increases....

Can someone explain this?
hoyleng youcandoit. increase in expected future income increases ppl consumption today, thus increased in aggregrate demand
choas69 increase in wealth aint a movement in the AD curve its not the price level for each quantity, increase in wealth means the money u have today has more purchasing power than it was yesterday.
