Term two-sector aggregate expenditures line Definition: A graphical depiction of the relation between aggregate expenditures by the two private sectors (household and business) and the level of aggregate income or production. The two-sector aggregate expenditures line combines consumption expenditures and investment expenditures. The slope of this aggregate expenditures line is based on the marginal propensity to consume, adjusted for the marginal propensity to invest if it is assumed to be induced when constructing the line. This is one of three aggregate expenditures lines based on the number of sectors included. The others are the three-sector aggregate expenditures line and the four-sector aggregate expenditures line.
