National Accounts In Orangeland, a closed economy, Orangelanders live only on orange juice. There is a farm that produces oranges and a factory that produces OJ. In 200 3 , the orange farm produced 10 oranges, and sold them to the orange juice company at $1 each. The orange juice company produced 3 bottles of orange juice, and sold them all at a unit price of $10 plus 10% indirect tax collected by government (so the price paid was actually $11). The orange farm paid total wages of $6. The orange juice company paid total wages of $10. Both companies retained 50% of their net profits (after depreciation) and paid the rest of it as dividends to the households.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
