Part II (choose 4 out of 5 questions, 5 points each) 1. (1.5 points for the first two answers; 1 point for the next two answers) a) Structural deficit : The deficit that remains at full employment. b) Full Production : All resources are fully and efficiently employed. c) Fallacy of Composition : It occurs when we believe that what is true for a part is true for the whole. d) Fiscal Drag : The negative effect on the economy that occurs when average tax rates increase because taxpayers have moved into higher income brackets during an expansion. e) Laissez-faire economy : An economy in which individuals and firms pursue their own self-interests without any central direction or regulation. f) Federal fund rate: The rate banks are charged to borrow reserves from other banks. 2. Fixed-weighted procedure to calculate the real GDP: use the prices in the base year as weights to calculate real GDP. (2 points) Problems: (1) Many structural changes might have taken place in a long period. The prices in the base year might not be good weights to use for other years. (2) The fixed-weighted procedure does not account for the responses in the economy to supply shifts. (1.5 points for each) 3. UR: The ratio of the number of people unemployed to the total number of people in the labor force. (2 points) The unemployment rate might not be a good indicator to measure the national unemployment. A low national rate of unemployment does not mean that the entire nation is growing and producing at the same rate. (3 points) 4. (2.5 points for each answer; 2 answers) (1) Inflation changes the distribution of income. (2) Effects on debtors and creditors. (3)Administrative costs and inefficiencies.
