Household behavior with respect to changes in income can be described by the marginal propensity to consume (MPC) and the marginal propensity to save (MPS). These variables can be used to predict the eventual changes in equilibrium output after the change in income has occurred. The the larger the resulting change in output for a given change in expenditure.
Greater the MPC
The Marginal Propensity to consume refers to how much Economic consumption increases or decreases due to a change in income.
The formula for MPC is;
= Change in Consumption/Change in Income.
Consumption is a major component of GDP so it has a direct influence on Economic output. In other words, the larger the level of consumption, the higher the higher the output.
As evident from the equation, if the change in consumption is higher than the change in income, the MPC will be larger. A larger MPC therefore corresponds to a higher Consumption.
If a higher Consumption leads to a larger output and a larger MPC corresponds to a higher Consumption then that means that a higher MPC leads to a larger output.
