In fact we can find Cr+1 s .. 1 41 T Cr Time, Discounting and Decision Rules out just how much investment and consumption occurs if the economy settles at X. We can read off Ct and Ct+l immediately and we see that these are given by Ct and Ct+ 1 . e. the difference between Ct and OT must be the level of real investment in year t, ft. In tum we see that it is It that generates the consumption level Ct+1· Using these ideas we can establish some important equations. 3) But YCt = It because YC t is drawn by constructing the 45° line YT.
