Answer Key for PS1 Prof. Shea Spring 2008 1. A rancher in Argentina sells $5000 worth of beef to a beef processor located in the US -------------------Argentina: Export to US (Argentina's GDP rises by $5000) -------------------US: Import from Argentina ($5000 deducted from US GDP) The beef processor grinds the meat and sells half of the ground beef to a restaurant located in the US, for $10,000; and the other half to a restaurant located in Mexico for $8000. -------------------US: Export to Mexico (US GDP rises $8000) -------------------Mexico: Import from US ($8000 deducted from Mexico's GDP later) -------------------The sale to the US restaurant is intermediate (no impact on US GDP) The US restaurant makes hamburgers out of the ground beef and sells them for $13,000, while the restaurant in Mexico makes tacos out of the ground beef and sells them for $10,000. -------------------US: Consumption (US GDP rises by $13,000) -------------------Mexico: Consumption (Mexico's GDP rises by $10,000) Therefore, the rise of GDP for each country: Rise in US GDP = Rise in C + Rise in X – Rise in M = 13000+8000-5000 = $16000 Rise in Argentina's GDP = Rise in X = $5000 Rise in Mexico's GDP = Rise in C – Rise in M = 10,000-8000 = $2000
