Abstract: The main focus of this case is on examining the behavior of income, consumption, and investment expenditure over the course of business cycles by comparing the annual percentage change of output and consumption expenditures. In addition, it is designed to examine whether or not all components of consumption or investment behave similarly.

For example, if income rises or falls what is the behavior of consumption and investment?

  • Analyze the impact of policy changes on consumption and investment
  • Study the Indian five year plans and policy changes over the years and their impact on consumption and investment
