    Can someone explain how Greater Exports leads to Aggregate Demand to Increase?

    Also what affect does imports have on Aggregate Demand (AD). Why does Reduced Imports and Rise in Exports mean AD increases (depreciation in currency)?

    Doesn't Aggregate Demand mean, spending on goods on services so shouldnt imports rise Aggregate Demand since greater imports mean greater consumption?

    Just know the equation AD = Consumption + Gov spending + investment + (exports-imports)
    I dont think you'd ever have to explain WHY it leads to an increase in AD.

    C+I+G+(X-M)

    Increase in exports will lead to an increase in AD^

    And again look at the equation

    And again

    Lol thats not what im trying to say at all, im asking why does greater exports and reduced imports increase AD since AD is spending on goods and services so imports is like consumers spending on goods and services so shouldnt that increase AD not exports?

    Our economy is already in a current account deficit, if X is theoretically > M then the trade deficit improves,

    therefor making the UK more internationally competitive, therefor causing AD to shift to the right

    I think what your looking for is this:
    if the UK are more internationally competitive, they're output is gonna appreciate, as output appreciate AD shifts right

    Aggregate demand is demand for domestic goods (key word being domestic), so exports are foreign countries buying 'our' goods, as a result money coming into the economy from abroad. Imports however involve 'us' buying goods and services from another country so our spending does not count as an injection into the domestic economy but the other country's. Does this answer your question?

    The equation is AD = C + I + G +(X-M). Hence, by exporting (x) more than importing (m) the value of net trade is greater. Therefore since a value of one of the components of AD has increased AD will then increase.

    A depreciation of £ means that £ is weaker and so exchange rates fall from a UK residents perspective. Therefore what may have been £1=$2 is now £1=$1.5. Therefore it is now cheaper for Americans to import goods from Uk than previously. In addition it is now more expensive for UK residents to import from USA. Therefore firms would redirect their production to America due to demand from America. Therefore we export more than we import. As a result net trade worsens and so the depreciation of the £ would cause a rise in AD.

    You need a good chain of reasoning especially for a long answer question. It is usually linked to a macroeconomic objective
