# ASSIGNMENT no 1 last date 29/11/16

Economic growth and inflation are two most important macroeconomic factors affecting an economy. The main objective of the macroeconomic policy makers is the high and sustained economic growth with low inflation rate. The relationship between economic growth as measured by GDP; and inflation rate as measured by CPI or GDP deflator; depends on the economic situation of the economy. High economic growth or GDP, without an increase in inflation rate, is possible if the potential output of the economy is growing enough to keep pace with demand. If demand increases continuously, and the productive capacity or GDP does not expand, there is a danger of rapid increase in general price level in the long run leading to high inflation rate in the economy.

Requirement # 1

Suppose an economy produces only two goods; apples and oranges. Calculate the following by using information given in the table.

a. Nominal GDP for year 2010
b. Real GDP for year 2010 by taking 2009 as base year c. GDP deflator for year 2010

 Year 2009 Year 2010 Goods Price (Rs.) Quantity Price (Rs.) Quantity Apples 200 130 245 160 Oranges 350 150 430 170

Requirement # 2

(Marks: 1.5+1.5+2)

Calculate the cost of basket, Consumer Price Index (CPI), and inflation rate by using information given in the table.

 Price (Rs.) Quantity Years Apples Oranges Apples Oranges Cost of basket CPI Inflation rate 2009 200 350 130 150 ? ? ---- 2010 245 430 160 170 ? ? ?
