can someone help with this question..?
The answers were changed afterwards, all answers were correct. So there was probably something wrong with the question. You should disregard it
can someone help with this question
Take $100 for example. $100 = 50 pounds (spot rate) After 1 year: 50 * 1.06 = 53 Future expected exchange rate: $2.25 * 53 = 119.25. 119.25 - initial $100 = 19.25 19.25/100 = 19.25%

Can anyone explain questions 45 to47
Any clue on how to do this ?
S=D => 2P=6-P => 2P+P=6 => P=2 ; world price = 1euro + 0.50 (from the 50% tariff) =1.50 euros ; S= 2*1,50 = 3 and D=6-1,50=4,50 ; D-S= 1,50 so Revenue= 1,50/2 = 0.75
Here it should be the opposite with (E*Py)/Px
Why is A) not correct ?
because the IS is not equal to savings and investment rather it has the same function as the Keneysian cross Y=C(Y-T);I(i);G;TB(EP*/P;Y-T;Y*-T*) and it represent the goods market. Look how the axes are labelled.

Okay, so both answer D and B are correct I guess
TB=EX-IM=3-2=1 so D is false

how to do this ?
how to calculate this?
(0.4)x(-0.1)+(0.6)x(0.3). It's the weighted average.

Where is the answer key???
In the IS LM FX Model, when the Domestic Return increases, does the Trade Balance increase too ?
As domestic return increases, implies also an increase in interest rate. In turn, it decreases investment and domestic output which has a negative effect on TB. The effect is ambiguos
sorry, I was going through the summary and I noticed this graph's explanation is wrong. This is the correct one: non-center is facing a recession --> center country will help by making them increasing their output,: center applies an expansionary monetary policy --> LM curve shits up and lowering the interest rate --> IS has to adapt by shifting up because of the pegged i . Home than follows the same trend: decrease in i --> increase in Y . Thus, the center country gets further from the target output (Y0) but helping the home country to get closer to the target output and reducing the recession.

How do we get to B)?

if one currency appreciates by a certain amount, the other one has to depreciate by the exact same amount I think, otherwise it wouldn't make sense. Furthermore, the euro depreciates by 0.117 dollars, so if you apply the formula, you would get the amount by which the euro depreciated in euro.
Alright make sense now! Thanks

its cause they sell fewer goods to home at a lower price. this is also called beggar-thy-neigbour (a loss in foreig PS)
The question mentions that Indonesia decides to maintain capital mobility and fixed exchange rate, so no monetary policy, but then the answer says Indonesia defends the peg by monetary intervention? how is this possible
isnt it cause it says in the main question that this all happens in the short run meaning that monetary policies can happen in a fixed exchange rate system

Volume is just all trade so its trade volume would be 5 trillion. Where as its trade to gdp would be all trade (3+2) divided by its gdp So 5/20
ty
How?
1.05=1.02*1.224/X then solve for X which is 1.189 (UIP formula)

How do you find the answer ?
44) How to find the real wages in this case? (answer is D)
real wage foreign is just the MPL cars since they are only producing cars: 2.5. For the home country they only produce motos so the wage is the mpl of motos but since we need it in terms of cars we multiply that (5) by the world relative price of motos (0.5) and we get 2.5 also in this case.
How do you find the world relative price of motos ?
