Question

Suppose that nominal wage growth is 5 percent per year and the inflation rate( the growth of aggregate prices) is 2% per year, the growth of the real wage rate is

A 10 percent per year

B -3 percent per year

C 3 percent per year

D 7 percent per year

Answer #1

Asnwer

Formula :

(i) Real wage = Nominal wage/Price level

(ii) % change in (A/B) = % change in A - % change in B

Thus using above forumlas we have :

% change in (Real wage) = % change in (Nominal wage/Price level) = % change in (Nominal wage) - % change in (price level)

Here, % change in Nominal wage5% amd % change in price level = inflation rate = 2%

=> % change in (Real wage) = 5% - 2% = 3%

So, the growth of the real wage rate is 3%

Hence, the correct answer is **(C) 3 percent per
year.**

Suppose that the nominal rate of interest is 5% and the expected
rate of inflation is 2%. Whats is the expected real rate of
interest according to Fisher? Calculate the after-tax expected real
rate of assuming a 30% marginal tax rate. If inflation expectations
increase by 2%, what will be the new nominal rate according to
fisher? According to darby/feldstein? What should happen to bond
prices and stock prices if the expected rate of inflation
increase

Suppose that the nominal rate of interest is 5% and the current
expected rate of inflation is 2%. If the expected rate of inflation
were to increase by 5% (to a new level of 7%) the nominal rate
would rise to _____ according to the fisher effect and ______
according to the Darby/Feldstein effect. (for the Darby)/Feldstein
effect assume a marginal tax rate of 40%)
a) 6%; 8%
b) 10%;10%
c) 10%;13.33%
d)12%;15.33%

Growth rate of nominal GDP – Inflation rate =
a. price
level.
b. the growth
rate of nominal GDP.
c. the growth
rate of real GDP.
d. the growth
rate of long-run trend GDP.
e. how much the
economy contracts during a recession.
2. The
consumption category does not include purchases
a. of new cars
made by consumers.
b. of
entertainment services made by consumers.
c. of new

Suppose the one year nominal interest rate is 3 percent and that
the expected inflation is equal to 4 percent. The price index over
this one year period went from 218 to 223. Compare the ex-ante real
rate of interest to the ex-post real rate of interest. Which real
rate of interest would you more likely be willing to spend today
and which real rate of interest would you more likely be willing to
save and why?

Suppose the rate of inflation is constant at 5% and perfectly
anticipated. All nominal values (e.g. prices, wages and tax and
transfer rates) are indexed to inflation. Which of the following
statements is correct?
A. It will be costly for businesses to distinguish changes in
the price of their products that are due to inflation or that
reflect a relative price change
B. Inflation will produce costly re-distributions of wealth
C. Inflation has zero costs
D. The real income of...

True or False?
Suppose that the real interest rate is 3 percent. The money
supply is currently growing by 7 percent per year and real GDP is
growing by 2 percent per year. If the Fed permanently reduces the
growth rate of the money supply to 6 percent, the nominal interest
rate will fall to 1 percent. (Hint: Since the change in the money
growth rate is permanent, it will permanently change the inflation;
people will then adjust their expectations...

You are offered a 11 percent wage increase and the inflation
rate for the year turns out to be 11 percent. The change in your
real wage is 0 percent. With a 0 percent change in your real wage,
you are than you were before.
A. Better off
B. Worse off
C. No better off or worse off
