True Or False -

21. Purchasing power parity tends not to hold exactly because of frictions such as transportation costs, and because not all goods are tradable

22. If the demand curve for a firm's output is inelastic, the firm can increase its revenue by raising its price

23. If a 20% increase decrease in price leads to a 40% increase in the quantity supplied then the supply curve is inelastic

24. The opportunity cost of acquiring something is what you have to give up to get it

25. Each seller of a product is willing to sell as long as the price he's or she receives is greater than or equal to the opportunity cost of producing that product

26. A movement along a demand curve is called a change in demand while a shift of the demand curve is called change in quantity demanded

38. The quantity theory holds that in the long run MV=PY given that V is relatively constant and that long run output is determined by technology and the supplies of inputs, a 10% increase in M should increase P by 10%. Recent experience clearly shows that it does not necessarily hold in the short run when the economy is weak (output is less than the full employment level of output)

39. "Rational expectations" is the theory that people use all available information, including information about government policies in making their decisions
