9. When the price level rises, the number of dollars required to buy a fixed basket of goods

Increases, and so the value of money rises

Decreases, and so the value of money rises

Increases and so the value of money falls

Decreases and so the value of money falls

11. If the net export of a country is positive, then its

saving is greater than domestic investment and

Answer #1

7. Option A.

**Explanation**: Private Savings = GDP - (Taxes -
Tranfer payments) - Consumption = 11,000 - (2,500 - 500) - 7,500 =
11,000 - 2,000 - 7,500 = 1,500

Public savings = Taxes - (Government expenses + transfer payments) = 2,500 - (2,000 + 500) = 2,500 - 2,500 = 0

National savings = public savings + private savings = 0 + 1500 = 1500

**8. Option B**

**Explanation**: Unsold inventory is treated as
investment expenditure. Therefore, it is added in the current
quarter GDP as an investment.

9. Option C. Increases and so the value of money falls

**Explanation**: When price level rises i.e.
inflation takes place, the purchasing power of a dollar falls. So,
we need to spend more dollars to buy a fixed basket of goods.

**10**. **Option C.** 5.5%

**Explanation**: Real interest rate = nominal
interest rates - inflation = 8.5% - 3% = 5.5%

Given the figures provided, calculate the GDP using the
expenditure approach only. Not all figures might be included in the
calculation at all. Show your work.
a) National income = 1,000
b) consumption = 3,000
c) net private domestic investment = 1,500
d) government purchases = 2,000
e) exports = 500
f) transfer payments by government = 400
g) imports = 800 depreciation = 500
h) corporate income = 1,000

Saving and net flows of capital and goods
In a closed economy, saving and investment must be equal, but
this is not the case in an open economy. In the following problem,
you will explore how saving and investment are connected to the
international flow of capital and goods in an economy. Before
delving into the relationship between these various components of
an economy, you will be asked to recall some relationships between
aggregate variables that will be useful in...

Consider a closed economy. Suppose GDP equals $5 trillion,
consumption equals $3.25 trillion, the government spends $1
trillion and has a budget deficit of $0.15 trillion.
Question14: Use the numbers from the preceding context, but now
suppose that the government cuts taxes by $500 billion and that the
consumers save 4/5 of the tax cut and spend the other 1/5. Find out
the numerical values of taxes,public saving,private saving, and
investment,respectively,after the taxcuts.
a.0.85, 0.15,-0.90, 0.75
b.0.75,-0.65, 1.40, 0.65
c.0.35,...

Consider a closed economy to which the Keynesian-cross analysis
applies. Consumption is given by the equation C = 200 + MPC(Y – T).
Planned investment (I) is 300, government spending (G) is 300 and
taxes (T) is 300. Assume MPC is equal to 2/3.
(a) If Y is 1,500, what is planned spending? What is inventory
accumulation or decumulation? Is equilibrium Y higher or lower than
1,500?
(b) What is equilibrium Y?
(1 mark)
(c) What are equilibrium consumption, private...

If disposable income rises from $15,000 to $20,000 and the
marginal propensity to consume equals 0.8, then saving must
increase by:

The dollar level of government spending in total is not
necessarily equal to the dollar level of government as a component
of GDP. This is so because
Government itself does not produce anything, so it cannot be
included in a variable that measures production
Government spending is offset by taxes and borrowing, so only
positive net spending can be included in the computation of GDP,
not total spending
Government spending is offset by positive levels of taxes and
negative levels...

rate, the IS curve shifts:
Select one:
a. to the left by 1000.
