Fall 2008 Prof. Daniele Coen-Pirani Suggested Solution to Problem Set #1 Exercise #1 [25 pts.]. You have been elected the national accountant of a small country (Costa Tepper) in Central America. You have the following list of transactions for the year 2006. The local co/ee shops sold $10000 worth of co/ee to local consumers. To produce the co/ee they purchased $2000 worth of beans from the local co/ee growers. The co/ee growers sold $2000 of co/ee beans to the local co/ee shops and $5000 to Starbucks (a foreign company). The local textile company bought $1000 worth of wool from an Australian company and produced $10000 worth of clothes. Of these clothes 60% were sold to domestic consumers 20% to the government of Costa Tepper and 20% to foreigners. The local textile companies also bought 10 trucks to do their deliveries, each worth $1000, from FIAT (a foreign company). The local bananas producers produced $50000 worth of bananas. $30000 were sold to domestic consumers, and $10000 were sold to Chiquita (a foreign company) and $10000 were sold to a local subsidiary of Dole (a foreign company). The subsidiary produced $20000 worth of canned bananas that were sold to domestic consumers. Dole paid $5000 in wages and repatriated the remaining income. The government raised $2000 from Costa Tepper residents in taxes, paid $1000 in pensions to retired Costa Tepper residents and purchased 1 Dell (a foreign company) computer (worth $1000) to keep track of its records.
