Use the following information to answer the next two questions.

A Japanese investor notices the expected one year inflation rate in Japan and Mexico is 5% and 7%, respectively. The current spot rates for yen and pesos are as follows:

\$.15/Mex\$, ¥111.11/\$

What should be the value of pesos in terms of yen at the end of the year according to relative PPP?

 16.9842 16.3548 0.0611 0.0589

3. Use the information in #2

If the spot rate is ¥16.5/Mex\$, the yen has depreciated in real terms according to relative PPP.

True

False

1. after one year, uk= 1.5*1.06 = \$1.59/ pound

after one year, singapore= 0.77*1.07 = \$0.8239/ S\$

POUND/\$= 0.8239/1.59 = 0.5182 (AFTER ONE YEAR) i.e. option 4

2. japan, yen/\$= 111.11/1.05 = 105.8190 (after taking inflation into account)

mexico= peso/\$= 1/0.15 = 6.67, 6.67/1.07 = 6.2305 (after taking inflation into account)

therefore, peso/yen= 6.2305/ 105.8190= 0.0589 (option4)

3. spot rate=byen 16.5/mex\$

after inflation, 1/0.0589= yen16.984 / \$ . therefore, yen has depreciated in real terms, true
