3. If the GDP deflator is 104.8 for 1999 and the GDP deflator is 107.3 in 2000, a nominal GDP in 2000 of $10,000 billion would mean that the real GDP in 2000 would be?
4. If nominal GDP is $6,225.6 billion and the GDP deflator is 134.7, then real GDP is:
5. If the CPI increases from 200 to 240 for one year, the rate of inflation for that year is:
6. Assume the MPC in an economy is 0.8, the APC is 0.8 and disposable income is $9 billion. If disposable income increases to $14 billion, illustrate what is the new level of consumption?
7. An MPS of 0.4 means a $50 million tax cut ultimately affects spending:
8. If the desired fiscal stimulus is $20 billion and the desired AD increase is $50 billion, we can conclude that the MPC is:
9. To eliminate an AD shortfall of $120 billion when the economy has an MPC of 0.8, the government should decrease taxes by:
10. If the anticipated inflation rate is 6 percent and the nominal interest rate is 8 percent, the real interest rate will be:
11. Suppose the MPC in an economy is 0.9, the APC is 0.8 and disposable income is $9 billion. If disposable income increases to $14 billion, what is the new level of consumption?
