B: The common notation for the "slope" term of an equation specified as Y = a + bX. Mathematically, the b-slope term indicates the change in the value of the Y variable resulting from a unit change in the value of the X variable. Theoretically, the b-slope is frequently used to indicate endogenous or dependent relation between the Y and X variables. For example, if Y represents consumption and X represents national income, b measures induced consumption expenditures.

A graphical depiction of the relation between net exports attributed to the foreign sector and the economy's aggregate level of income or production. This relation plays a minor, but growing role in the study of Keynesian economics. A net exports line is characterized by vertical intercept, which indicates autonomous net exports, and slope, which is the negative of the marginal propensity to import and indicates induced net exports. The aggregate expenditures line used in Keynesian economics is derived by adding or stacking the net exports line onto the consumption line, after adding investment expenditures and government purchases.
