PROBLEM SET 3 Macroeconomic Measurement Name Rebekah Nagel Semester: Spring 2017 1. The people of Fort Worth buy only juice and cloth. The CPI market basket contains the quantities bought in 2009. The average household spent $60.00 on juice and $30.00 on cloth in 2009 when the price of juice was $2.00 a bottle and the price of cloth was $5.00 a yard. In the current year, 2010, juice is $4.00 a bottle and cloth is $6.00 a yard. Calculate the CPI and inflation rate in 2010. $90 is the base price, $156 is the current price. 156/90 17.33 is the CPI (156-90)/(90) X 100 = 73.33% (inflation) 2. A) Assume the market basket contains 10X, 20Y, and 45Z. The current year prices for goods X, Y, and Z are $1, $4, and $6, respectively. The base-year prices are $1, $3, and $5, respectively. What is the CPI in current year? 10(1) x 20(4) x 45(6) 10x80x270 __________________ x 100 10(1) x 20(3) x 45(5) CPI is 16 10x60x225 B) If the CPI is 150 and the nominal income is $100,000, what does real income equal? (100,000/150) x 100 $66,666.67 is real income 3. PRICE INDEX CALCULATIONS:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
