1. Consider an economy that produces only rice, fish and sugar. The following table provides annual production data for three consecutive years. The output quantities are measured in the same unit across the goods and the years. The unit prices are nominal. Rice Fish Sugar Year Unit price Output Unit price Output Unit price Output 2012/ 3 600 10 50 8 100

2013/ 4 600 12 70 9 150

2014/ 5 620 15 110 11 300

a) Calculate the nominal GDP for each year.

b) Calculate the real GDP for 2013 and for 2014, using 2012 as the base year.

c) Calculate the annual realâ€GDP growth rate from 2012 to 2013 and from 2013 to 2014, using 2012 as the base year.

d) Calculate the GDP deflator for 2013 and for 2014, using 2012 as the base year.

e) Calculate the annual inflation rate from 2013 to 2014, using the GDP deflators you obtained.

2. Minimum wage laws can cause classical unemployment.
