## IS-LM-BP explained?

The IS-LM-BP model (also known as IS-LM-BoP or Mundell-Fleming model) is an extension of the IS-LM model, which was formulated by the economists Robert Mundell and Marcus Fleming, who made almost simultaneously an analysis of open economies in the 60s.

## What causes shifts in the BP curve?

Downward pressure on interest rates causes capital outflows, while the higher income levels increases imports. This causes depreciation in the exchange rate, shifting the BP curve to the right.

**Why BP function is always slope upward to the right?**

This means that the current and capital account balances of payments sum to zero. As higher Y tends to produce a current account deficit, and higher r tends to produce a capital account surplus, the BP curve is upward sloping.

### Why is the BP curve horizontal?

The BP is perfectly horizontal when capital is perfectly mobile. This situation occurs when financial assets are perfect substitute across countries. Any small deviation in the domestic interest rate from the foreign interest rate results in an infinite amount of capital flows.

### IS-LM model explained?

The IS-LM model, which stands for “investment-savings” (IS) and “liquidity preference-money supply” (LM) is a Keynesian macroeconomic model that shows how the market for economic goods (IS) interacts with the loanable funds market (LM) or money market.

**IS-LM a BP framework?**

The Mundellâ€“Fleming model, also known as the IS-LM-BoP model (or IS-LM-BP model), is an economic model first set forth (independently) by Robert Mundell and Marcus Fleming. The model is an extension of the ISâ€“LM model.

#### IS-LM a BP model?

#### What IS-LM curve?

The LM curve depicts the set of all levels of income (GDP) and interest rates at which money supply equals money (liquidity) demand.

**What is the difference between IS-LM model and Mundell Fleming model?**

The main difference between Mundell-Fleming model and ISLM model relates to the fact that while ISLM model is effective under a closed-economy, Mundell-Fleming model attempts to analyse an open-economic system.

## IS-LM model exogenous variables?

The three critical exogenous, i.e. external, variables in the IS-LM model are liquidity, investment, and consumption. According to the theory, liquidity is determined by the size and velocity of the money supply. The levels of investment and consumption are determined by the marginal decisions of individual actors.

## IS-LM model calculated?

The basis of the IS-LM model is an analysis of the money market and an analysis of the goods market, which together determine the equilibrium levels of interest rates and output in the economy, given prices. The model finds combinations of interest rates and output (GDP) such that the money market is in equilibrium.
