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

whys isnt D a coorect anwer for 27?
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
1.05=1.02*1.224/X then solve for X which is 1.189 (UIP formula)
Where do the numbers in the table come from ?

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 ?
How do you find the answer ?

no i really think it is completely wrong
No, the versions are wrong above: so version S in this document is version I and that one in also online in study drive

27) Why should imports become cheaper due to a trade balance surplus?
If Canada has a trade surplus to lets say NZ, then the demand for canadian goods is higher than NZ. Further NZ has then a demand of Canadian dollar to pay for the trade defecit.

how is CS 13.5?
I think it is wrong! CS needs to be 12.5 because it is equal to (5x5)/2 and therefore CS is equal to 12.5 not 13.5. A needs to be correct!!!
4) Why don't we have enough information? Isn't it 10%?
That only applies for small changes. And the change there is 10%

Does anyone know where to find answer to the open questions of past exams ?
How do you calculate this ?
Look for the row where domestic exports equal foreign imports, i.e. 500 - 500. So 5 yards/bushel.
WHy is it A ?
Because both are financial assets, Korea receive cash in exchange for a stock (asset import and asset export)
Why is it D ?
There cannot be a rise in national wealth if there is a greater expenditure and a deficit in CA and you borrow from the world which means your foreign liabilities rise
Why is it A and not B ?

Sorry, I meant why is it D and not B? I thought we did not take into account the imports when calculating the country's GDP
(EX+IMP)/GDP=TD to GDP ratio
this part is all wrong!

check the currencies.
True ! You are right it should be E_(£/$) = E_(£/€) E_(€/$) , just need to change the $ sign by the € one. Sorry for that
