The quantities produced of these goods and their prices in the years 2001 and 2008 are listed below. Year Quantity of Oranges (Bushels) Quantity of Apples (Bushels) Quantity of Bananas (Bushels) Price of Oranges ($/Bushel) Prince of Apples ($/Bushel) Price of Bananas ($/Bushel) 2001 100 150 200 10.00 8.00 8.00 2008 120 180 200 12.00 10.00 9.00 1) Assuming that 2001 is the base year, complete the following table: Year Gross Domestic Product Real Gross Domestic Product Implicit GDP Deflator 2001 2008 2) a) What is the annual rate of growth in real GDP between 2001 and 2008 in Economia?

Show all work! 3) What was the annual rate of inflation in Economia between 2001 and 2008? Show all work! Determining rates of growth: Suppose a particular variable of interest has the value X t at time t, and X t+N at time t+N (N periods later). If we denote by ρ the per-period growth rate in this variable X, we have: X t+N = X t (1 + ρ ) N If we wish to determine ρ we may rearrange this expression as: ρ = [X t+N /X t ] 1/N- 1...
