Term induced investment Definition: Business investment expenditures that depend on income or production (especially national income or gross national product). An increase in national income triggers an increase in induced investment expenditures. Induced investment is graphically depicted as the slope of the investment line and is measured by the marginal propensity to invest. The induced relation between income and investment, as well as other induced expenditures, form the foundation of the multiplier effect triggered by changes in autonomous expenditures.
