The figure shows consumption function C = 50 + 0.8y, the investment function I = 150, the aggregate spending function A = 200 + 0.8y and the equilibrium condition Y = A. The equilibrium level of income is determined by the intersection of the A curve and the 45 degree line at Point E. The equilibrium level of income in this case is therefore 1000. At levels of Y lower than 1000 there is excess demand and at levels of Y higher than 1000 there is excess supply.
