The slopes of the isoclines are given in the last equation of the proof.
It is only necessary to determine how the [Mathematical Expression Omitted] and [Mathematical Expression Omitted] isoclines shift in response to changes in [Alpha] [equivalent to] ([Delta], [Epsilon], [Gamma], k, [Rho], r, [Theta], w), and combine this information with the long-run comparative statics to determine the local comparative dynamics.
Because the steady state value of the current value shadow price is lower due to the demand shock, the isoclines must shift down in such a way so as to lower its value.
