He received his Licence en Sciences Politiques from the University of Geneva in , where he also stayed on for a year as an assistant in Economics in the Graduate Institute of International Studies , and subsequently moved to the United States, where he obtained his Ph. He also briefly worked as a lecturer in the Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago.
For two years he stayed at the University of Rochester as an assistant professor in the Department of Economics, followed by a year as associate professor of International Economics, again in the Graduate School of Business of the University of Chicago.
In he moved to MIT , where he was appointed as associate professor in the Department of Economics. In he became professor of economics.
He stayed in MIT until his death in According to some of his students and associates his talent was to extract the heart of a problem and make it understandable in simple terms.
For example, he explained fluctuations in prices and exchange rates with great clarity notably with his Overshooting Model. He succeeded in making a more realistic model than Mundell-Fleming model with regard to a small open economic system, considering exchange rate expectations. Along with Sebastian Edwards coined the term macroeconomic populism. For more than 15 years he served as an associate editor of the Quarterly Journal of Economics.
Together with Stanley Fischer he also wrote widely used undergraduate textbooks.
He died, aged sixty, from cancer. Fischer 5th ed. Aspe and M. Fischer and R. Schmalensee Restoring Europe's Prosperity, with O. Relating the discussion of economic indicators to current news reports on economic issues may prove to be very interesting to students. Instructors who choose to devote some time to the discussion of economic indicators in Chapter 1 may find it helpful to assign Chapter 2 simultaneously.
The web sites listed in Section are very useful in this regard.
A worthwhile assignment requiring a data search is to ask students to make a comparison between the performance of the U. The difficulties of measuring quality improvements, innovations, or the substitutability of goods should also be discussed.
There is a great deal of discussion of how well the CPI actually measures the true cost of living. When discussing measurements for inflation, it is important to mention the difference between nominal and real interest rates. Some instructors may want to mention the Fisher equation, named after Irving Fisher, who analyzed the linkage between inflation and interest rates.
Even at this early stage in the semester some instructors may want to attempt to give students at least a rudimentary understanding of how the unemployment rate is calculated or why the unemployment rate in the U. Similarly, a brief explanation of why the exchange rate between the currencies of two particular countries may not necessarily give much indication of whether specific goods are more or less expensive in these two countries may be appropriate.
However, since these two issues are explained in much more detail in later chapters, instructors pressed for time may want to disregard these issues at this time. Instructors should also give some attention to Figure , which shows alterative measures to the official unemployment rate, as official numbers may not accurately represent the impact of an economic downturn on individuals' well-being.
As important as national income accounting is in assessing the performance of the economy, some instructors may want to leave much of the material up to students to read on their own, given the shortness of the semester and the amount of material still to be covered. However, a few national income accounting identities should be derived.
In other words, this identity states that the difference between private domestic saving S and private domestic investment I is equal to the difference between the budget deficit BD and the trade deficit TD. The equation can therefore be used to explain the development of the "twin deficits" in the early s. Finally, it can be explained why the decrease in U. Many students are worried that the U.
A brief discussion of whether we should be concerned by this fact and whether foreign ownership of assets in the U. Some instructors may want to use Figure , which shows the federal debt as a percentage of GNP from and indicates periods of recession and war, as a way to solicit student views on what factors may have caused significant increases in the national debt and at what point a large national debt may become a concern to policy makers.
Since later chapters use the concept of the budget surplus BS when discussing fiscal policy, some instructors may actually prefer to use the following equation rather than equation National saving consists of private domestic saving S and government saving, which is positive if the government runs a budget surplus. Transfer payments do not immediately affect GDP, since no productive activity takes place when these payments are made; however, GDP will be impacted later through an increase in consumption as these transfer payments are eventually spent.
Additional Readings Boskin, Michael, et. Boskin, Michael, et. Landefeld, S. Lebow, D. Louis, March, Solutions to Problems in the Textbook Conceptual Problems 1.
Government transfer payments TR do not arise out of any production activity and are thus not counted in the value of GDP. If the government hired the people who receive transfer payments, then their wages would be counted as part of government purchases G , which is counted in GDP. Therefore GDP would rise even if these workers were paid to do nothing, as government purchases are measured on a cost basis. If the firm buys a car for an executive's use, the purchase counts as investment I.
However, if the firm pays the executive a higher salary and she then buys a car, the purchase of her car is counted as consumption C.
In either case, GDP will increase. The services that a homemaker provides are not counted in GDP regardless of their value. However, if an individual officially hires his or her spouse to perform household duties at a certain wage rate, the wages earned will be counted in GDP and GDP will increase.
Overall GDP will increase by the value added at the foreign car dealership, since the import price is likely to be less than the sales price. If you buy a new American car, consumption and thus GDP will increase by the full value of the car. GDP is the market value of all final goods and services currently produced within the country.
The U. GDP includes the value of the Hondas produced by a Japanese-owned assembly plant that is located in the U. GNP is the market value of all final goods and services currently produced using assets owned by domestic residents. Here the value of the Hondas produced by a Japanese-owned Honda plant in the U.
Neither is necessarily a better measure of the output of a nation. Depreciation measures the value of the capital that wears out during the production process and has to be replaced. Therefore NDP comes closer to measuring the net amount of goods produced in this country. If this is what you want to measure, then NDP should be used. For example, if the population of a country increases proportionally more than real GDP, then the population of the country is on average worse off.
For example, increased pollution may cause more lung cancer, and the treatment of the lung cancer will contribute to GDP. Similarly, an increase in crime may lead to overtime work for police officers, whose increased salary will increase GDP.
But the welfare of the people in the country will not have increased in either of these cases. On the other hand, GDP also does not always accurately measure quality improvements in goods or services faster computers or improved health care that improve people's welfare. The CPI consumer price index and the PPI producer price index are both measured by looking at a certain market basket.
The CPI is a concurrent economic indicator, whereas the PPI is a leading economic indicator; so if you want to assess current inflation, you need to look at the CPI, but if you want to assess the possibility of future inflation, you need to look at the PPI. The GDP-deflator is a price index that covers the average price increase of all final goods and services currently produced within an economy.
This is true for two reasons: first it measures a much wider cross-section of goods and services; second, a fixed market basket cannot account for people substituting away from goods whose relative prices have changed, while the GDP-deflator, which includes all final goods and services produced within the country, can.
If nominal GDP has suddenly doubled, it is most likely due to an increase in the average price level. To calculate how much real output GDP has changed, the first thing you would want to check is how much the GDP-deflator has changed. One way to get protection against such a loss of purchasing power is to adjust the interest rate for inflation, that is, to index the loan. In this case, a specified positive real rate of return can be guaranteed.
Technical Problems 1. We can see that the growth rate of real GDP calculated this way is roughly the same as the growth rate calculated above. Therefore, if we assume that transfer payments TR remain constant, an increase in taxes TA has to be offset either by an increase in government purchases G , an increase in net exports NX , or a decrease in the difference between private domestic saving S and private domestic investment I.
An alternative way of measuring GDP is to calculate all the value added at each step of production. If the CPI increases from 2. The CPI often overstates inflation, since it is calculated by using a fixed market basket of goods and services. Quality improvements in goods also often are not adequately taken into account. Therefore, the CPI will overstate the increase in consumers' expenditures. Empirical Problems 1. All the values obtained for GNP and NNP are based on the formulas given in the second row of the table and correspond with the actual numbers reported by www.
The growth rate of the population in the U. Since real output grew by more than the population, U.
Additional Problems 1. This statement would only be true if a realtor was involved in the sale of the house, as the realtor would have provided a current service for which he or she would be paid. Transactions involving existing assets such as residential housing do not create economic activity in an amount equal to the value of the sale. New home construction, on the other hand, is included in the calculation of the current year's GDP as it does represent current economic activity.
Explain the initial effect of each of the following events on GDP. GDP will not change, since a used car is not part of current production.
Only if you sell the car through a dealer will GDP increase by the value of the services rendered. A loss in stock values means a loss in wealth; therefore GDP is not directly affected.
Your income and thus GDP would only be affected if your dividend payments decrease. When you use savings to buy land, a transfer of wealth takes place and GDP is not affected. However, if a real estate agent receives a commission, then GDP will go up by the value of the services rendered. When the card dealer sells the rookie card, inventory decreases, so investment goes down.
But selling the card to a customer increases consumption, so GDP increases but only by the value added by the dealer for the services rendered. GDP will increase by the value added in the restaurant.
How will each of the following events affect GDP and why? When a hurricane destroys property, wealth is affected, not income or GDP. On the other hand, the rebuilding of destroyed property results in increased economic activity that will lead to a rise in GDP. The sale of your textbook to another student will not constitute an official market transaction, since you probably will not report your income to the IRS.
In addition, the textbook has already been used and is not part of current production. Therefore GDP will not be affected.
The sale of existing stock holdings is a transfer of wealth and, as such, does not affect GDP. Any fees that you may have to pay your broker for his or her services, however, constitute payment for services rendered. GDP will increase by that amount.
Inventory changes are counted as part of investment. A reduction in business inventories will lower the level of investment I and thus GDP. However, the sales of the cars will count as consumption C if consumers buy them, or investment I if firms buy them. Thus the net effect on GDP depends on the value added, that is, the difference between the cost of the cars to the dealership and the sales price of the cars. Transfer payments that do not arise from productive activity are not counted in GDP.
Only later, when these payments are spent, will consumption increase. If nominal GDP in Germany increased by 2. GDP increased by 4.
Why or why not? A country's nominal GDP is not a good measure of the economic welfare of its people, since nominal GDP can change solely due to inflation. Only if real GDP grows faster than population, will real income per capita increase.
But real GDP per capita still does not take into account changes in income distribution, changes in environmental quality, or leisure, all of which influence the economic welfare of the people in a country. Therefore we cannot say whether the welfare of the people in the U. Inventories rise when production exceeds sales, but fall if production falls short of demand.
