  Multiplier (economics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is particularly associated with Keynesian economics; some other schools of economic thought reject or downplay the importance of multiplier effects, particularly in the long run.
The basic assumption of the multiplier effect is that the economy starts off with unused resources, for example, that many workers are cyclically unemployed and much of industrial capacity is sitting idle or incompletely utilized.
For various laissez-faire schools of economics which embrace Say's Law and deny the possibility of Keynesian inefficiency and under-employment of resources, therefore, the multiplier concept is irrelevant or wrong-headed.

The type II multiplier is used when the change in the number of employees who will be employed or laid off is known and the (direct, indirect and induced) change in the regionwide employment is desired.
The type II multiplier is used for a closed model when the initial change in sector income is known and the total change in regionwide income (all sectors combined) is desired.
A sector with the largest multiplier in the state may be so small that it takes an unrealistic rate of growth to generate the same region-wide growth of income as a very large sector with a very small multiplier.

The multiplier is a difficult concept for students to comprehend.
Just as the water pressure (and water flow) would be a reciprocal of the sum of the holes in the pipeline, the multipliers (and income flow) are likewise a reciprocal of the sum of the leakages form the spending stream.
While mathematical presentations on the multiplier tend to silence a class, the "poking a pipeline" analogy seems to create a spark, probably with a more lasting and clearer impression of the multiplier universe.

Consequently the sum of direct, indirect and induced economic impacts of HSU on the County economy is $196.5 million.
The size of the economic base is an important determinant of size of the County’s population and economy.
Assuming that the spending multiplier for HSU employees was 0.12 (each dollar spent by an employee ultimately added an additional 12 cents to the county’s economy), then the $86.22 million payroll expenditures would result in an addition of $10.35 million to the local economy through the multiplier effect.

Notice that the multiplier effect can continue until every bit of the income injected into the economy (your $200 income tax refund) has leaked out of the economy in the form of saving.
Another factor that would reduce the multiplier is the fact that you, I, Jack, Paula, and other participants in the multiplier process may decide to spend some of the increase in income that we receive on imports.
Actually, the multiplier of the United States has been estimated to be around 2, so your receipt of the $200 income tax refund would be likely to result in a total increase in income of $400.

 The Perseverance of Paul Samuelson
The multiplier, the propensity to consume, the paradox of thrift, countercyclical fiscal policy, and C + I + G were all incorporated into the language of Econ 101.
The torrential pace of economic activity in 1983-1984 was an expansion, fueled by demand-side growth, in the name of supply-side economics" (12:192).
Samuelson's desire to homogenize mainstream economics into one grand "neo-classical synthesis" is evident in his "family tree of economics." Beginning with the fourth edition (1958, flap), the author created a genealogical diagram of economic thought from the Greeks to the present.

 Renshaw: Essay 18
If this interpretation of the Keynesian multiplier model, and its policy implications, were essentially correct there would be very little change in the shifting propensity to spend out of the previous year's income in the vicinity of economic recessions.
Table 18.4 are not inconsistent with the hypothesis that the large budget deficits which followed the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981 may have helped to raise the inflation adjusted yield on new home mortgages dramatically and made housing and investment in new plant and equipment less affordable in the US.
The most notable difference between the great depression of the 1930s and the recessions of 1980 and 1981-82 is the extent to which an increase in the government deficit was able to offset the adverse effect of a decrease in investment spending.

 American Journal of Economics and Sociology, The: On the Mythology of the Keynesian Multiplier: Unmasking the Myth and ...
JAMES C. Keynes's multiplier story invites acceptance by building on the fact that people typically consume only a fraction of their income and that such purchases are incomes for sellers.
But the mythology of the multiplier story becomes clear when we ask, "From where do people find the means to purchase consumption goods, other than production?" The inadequacies of several earlier criticisms stem from their failure to focus on this fundamental point.
Recognition of the fundamental flaw in the Keynesian multiplier concept also should caution against attempts to estimate the impact effects of certain public expenditures, using "sectoral multipliers" based on the consumption expenditures of people employed in those industries, such as Kahane (1997).

Time lags are also a problem because the various rounds of spending, which cause the multiplier effect, take time to build up; therefore the strength of the effect may not be seen for some time.

To find the ultimate increase in income, we take the initial increase ($25,000) and multiply times the multiplier (5); the result is $125,000.
The reason is due to the fact that the multiplier process can continue to work until every bit of the $25,000 injected into the economy through your buying of the car leaks out of the economy in the form of saving.
In other words, the multiplier process continues until every bit of the money initially injected into the economy leaks out of the spending stream in the form of saving.

 Multiplier
In Keynesian economic theory, a factor that quantifies the change in total income as compared to the injection of capital deposits or investments which originally fueled the growth.
Keynesian economic theory contends, among other things, that any injection into the economy via investment capital, government spending or the like will result in a proportional increase in overall income at a national level.
The multiplier itself is an attempt to measure the size of those "carry-through effects".

The way that the standard graphs and figures of economics are presented in lectures is inherently dynamic.
New curves are derived from old ones; curves shift as people's behavior changes; the point on the graph representing the position of the economy changes as shocks push the economy away from and as equilibrium-restoring processes push the economy back to equilibrium.
