Fair use rationale for Image:Pyat rublei 1997.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Pyat rublei 1997.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

effect of temporary changes on multiplier[edit]

Quote; "if a consumer expects a change in income to be permanent, then they have a greater incentive to increase their consumption (Barro and Grilli, p. 417-8). This implies that the Keynesian multiplier should be smaller in response to permanent changes in income than it is in response to temporary changes in income"

Intuitively I would expect the opposite effect. I suppose this is why "smaller" is in italics. Could this be explained, here or in the article? Daniel Bonniot de Ruisselet (talk) 20:06, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Granted, I just started studying this, but that's what I would think. If MPC(p) = 0.8 while MPC(t) = 0.5., wouldn't M(p) = 5 and M(t) = 2? Gusthemynahbird (talk) 22:25, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Look out for possible copyright violations in this article[edit]

This article has been found to be edited by students of the Wikipedia:India Education Program project as part of their (still ongoing) course-work. Unfortunately, many of the edits in this program so far have been identified as plain copy-jobs from books and online resources and therefore had to be reverted. See the India Education Program talk page for details. In order to maintain the WP standards and policies, let's all have a careful eye on this and other related articles to ensure that no material violating copyrights remains in here. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 12:38, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

MPC and the Multiplier[edit]

What is the parameter, I? Does the multiplier have any meaning at all? MPC = 1 just means that a household has spent all of its marginal increase in income, which is perfectly legitimate. What does an infinite multiplier mean for this case? Virgil H. Soule (talk) 18:36, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
