Real GDP per person in Northland is \$30,000

Question

Question 1

Real GDP per person in Northland is
\$30,000, while real GDP in Southland is \$10,000. However, Northland’s real GDP
per person is growing at 1 percent per year and Southland’s is growing at 3
percent per year. If these growth rates persist indefinitely, then

 Northland’s real GDP per person will decline until it equals Southland’s. Northland’s real GDP per person will always be greater than Southland’s. Southland’s real GDP per person will always be the same as Northland’s. Southland’s real GDP per person will eventually be greater than Northland’s.

is Y = A KaL1-a, then the production function in per capita terms (using lower
case letters to denote per capita variables and assuming all people are
workers) is

economy with a recessionary gap, output will ______ and the inflation rate will
_____.

 increase; increase increase; decrease increase; not change decrease; decrease

Question 4

At long-run equilibrium, inflation _______
and output equals ______.

 equals the value determined by past expectations and pricing decisions; potential output. equals the value determined by past expectations and pricing decisions; the level of short-run equilibrium output consistent with that inflation rate equals the value consistent with potential output; the level of output consistent with zero inflation is stable; potential output.

Question 5

Consider the country of Solow, which is
described by the Solow-Swan model. Let the saving rate q = 0.8; let the population
growth rate n = 0.05; let the rate of depreciation d = 0.05. If per capita
income y = 100 and the per capita stock of capital k = 800, then:

 replacement investment is 60, saving is 80 and k will decrease towards the steady state per capita capital stock. replacement investment is 80, saving is 80 and k is at the steady state per capita capital stock. replacement investment is 80, saving is 60 and k will decrease towards the steady state per capita capital stock. replacement investment is 80, saving is 60 and k will increase towards the steady state per capita capital stock.

and the depreciation rate of capital is five per cent, then by how much would
the capital stock have to grow just to satisfy the need for replacement
investment?

Question 7

If policymakers attempt to offset a
favourable inflation shock with monetary _____, the resulting long-run
equilibrium will be at _____ inflation rate compared with allowing the
self-correcting mechanism to return the economy to potential output.

 tightening; a higher tightening; a lower easing; a higher easing; a lower

described by the production function Y=AKaL1-a. Capital in use is equal to 25
units, labour in use is equal to 25 units, A is equal to 2 units and a = 0.5.
Output per worker is equal to

 2 units. 1 unit. 25 units. 50 units.

Question 9

The following table gives you information
regarding two economies Shrek Republic and Farquaad Republic. Assume the
participation rate is constant and equal to 100 percent in both economies.

 Shrek Republic Farquaad Republic Population growth rate 2 percent 15 percent Growth rate of Productivity 7 percent 3 percent Growth rate of GDP 9 percent 18 percent

The growth in the standard of living of Farquaad Republic will be ________ than
Shrek Republic because ___________.

 higher, because its growth rate of per-capita output is higher lower, because its growth rate of output is lower lower, because its growth rate of population is lower lower, because its growth rate of per-capita output is lower

useful when a policymaker aims to achieve a higher standard of living for her
country in the long run?

Question 12

According to the Solow-Swan model, for a
country that is initially in steady state, if the technology parameter A
(denoting secondary factors) rises, then

 the per capita capital stock initially decreases, then returns to its initial steady state level. the per capita capital stock decreases and the country moves to a new lower steady state level of per capita income. the per capita capital stock initially increases, then returns to its initial steady state level. the per capita capital stock increases and the country moves to a new higher steady state level of per capita income.

is 0.8; the level of per capita capital stock is 100; the rate of depreciation
is 0.03 and the rate of population growth is 0.02. What is the level of per

Question 20

Suppose the country of ‘Neo’ is in steady
state in the Solow-Swan growth model and decides that its growth rate of per
capita income is too low. In response, it decides to raise its savings rate.
This has the effect of

 temporarily raising per capita income growth as the economy moves to a new steady state, but no long-run effect on per capita income growth. raising per capita income growth in both the near term and in the new steady state. raising steady state per capita income growth in the long run but has no immediate effect on per capita income growth. raises the replacement investment required for any given level of per capita capital stock.
