Kenneth Lingenfelter, Week 7 Homework, Chapter 6. Problems 1; Chapter 7. Problems 3 Chapter 6, Problem # 1 a. Natural real GDP equals 0.2*11,600= 2,320 b. Because taxes 2,320 are less than government spending 2,610; deficit equals 2,320 − 2,610 = −290; percentage of natural real GDP equals −290/11,600 = −.025 = −2.5% c. Natural employment deficit must equal −.01*11,600= −116 billion d. T − G = −116; T = 2,320 at natural real GDP, tax rate, 2,320 − G = −116 or G = 2,436; reduce government spending to 2,436 e. T − G = −116 and since G = 2,610; t(11,600) − 2,610 = −116, or t*11,600 = 2,494; the tax rate 2,494/11,600 = .215 f. Raising taxes or cut government spending will assist fiscal policy makers in accomplishing the goal in reducing employment deficit to 1% of the GDP. To lower the interest rates, monetary policymakers would have to set new standards to effect fiscal policy. g. The mix described in those two parts reduces the interest rate. The decline in the natural employment deficit is the less in private savings as the interest rates decline. National savings will increase in an amount that is less than the employment deficit. Chapter 7, Problem # 3 a. The exchange rate 0-12 is 2,800 – 200*0 = 2,800; 2,800-200*1=2,600; 2,800-200*2=2,400; 2,800- 200*3=2,200; 2,800-200*4=2,000; 2,800-200*5=1,800; 2,800-200*6=1,600; 2,800-200*7=1,400; 2,800-

### What students are saying

• 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.
