Income on the aggregate demand and productivity on the supply side would have the greatest impact on the economy of our city.

As the purchasing power of our money changes the aggregate demand curve is affiected in three ways.
1. Wealth Effect--As the increase in spending that occurs because the real value of money increases when the price level falls is konwn as the wealth effect. The lower the prices are the higher the levels of wealth and the higher the level of wealth it increases spending on total goods and services. When the level of prices rise, consumer spending decreases because the real value of money decreases and consumers just can't simply substitute one for another because when level of prices rise everything is more expensive.
2. The Interest Effect-- Based on a given supply of money in the economy, a lower price level wil lead to lower interest rates. When rates are lower both consumers and firms will find it cheaper to borrow money to make purchases. However, when this happens, a demand for goods ijn ther economy will increase.
3. The International Trade Effect-- In an open economy, a lower price level will mean that domestic goods become cheaper relative to foreign goods , so the demand fordomestic goods will increase. For example, when the price level for goods in the US drops, it will make U. S. goods cheaper relative to foreign goods.
