ECO403 Macroeconomics Assignment No.2 Solution Fall Semester 2013

SEMESTER FALL 2012

ASSIGNMENT NO. 02
DUE DATE: 31ST JANUARY 2013
MARKS: 25
ASSIGNMENT:
The Case:
Egypt is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the entire world and
growing economy of Africa. The Egyptian economy depends on petroleum
exports, media, textile and tourism. In 2008, more than 12.8 million tourists visited
Egypt providing revenues of nearly 1 trillion rupees. As tourism industry is the
major source of revenue for Egypt, suppose government of Egypt invested Rs. 7
million on tourism to make it more attractive and comfortable for tourists. An
overwhelming majority got benefit in the shape of employment, facilities and
others. This temptation stimulated the other industries like cement, iron, chemical,
tobacco, canned food, shoes and furniture. This boost not only changed the living
standards but consumption, saving, inflation, employment, incomes aggregate
demand were also improved. The consumption function for the people of Egypt
before investment was C = 100 +0.70Y while it was C = 100 +0.75Y after the
investment.
The analytical view before and after the government investment is given below:
Before investment After investment

This investment also increased the confidence of producers and consumers and
changed the other vital facts and figure of the economy which are given below.

According to above facts and figures, government investment has uplifted the
other sectors of the economy.
Requirements:
Using the information given above, calculate:
A. Consumption of the people of Egypt from the given equation after the
investment
B. Government spending multiplier before and after the investment
C. Tax multiplier before and after the investment
D. Nominal interest rate before and after the investment
(Note: Write down all relevant steps involved in calculation)
(Marks =7+6+6+6)

Dear students!
As you know that Post Mid-Term semester activities have been
started and load shedding problem is also prevailing in our
country now a days. Keeping in view the fact, you all are advised
to post your activities as early as possible without waiting for the
been uploaded on VULMS for the current semester, therefore no
excuse will be entertained after due date of assignments, quizzes
or GDBs.

2. Idea Solution

A. Consumption of the people of Egypt from the given equation after the investment

Y = income

C = 100 +0.75Y

C = 11350

B. Government spending multiplier before and after the investment

Government Spending Multiplier = 1/MPS

Before = 3.33

After = 4

C.Tax multiplier before and after the investment

Tax multiplier = - MPC/MPS

Before = 2.33

After = 3

D. Nominal interest rate before and after the investment

I don’t know how to calculate nominal interest rate

3. ## Fragrance of love

plzzzzzzz help i need solution

4. Idea Solution

C = 100 +0.75Y

where Y means Income and income bhi hamen di gae hai which is 15000 of after investment

so Y (income) = 15000 equation mein put ker dein

C = 100+ 0.75 (15000)

C = 100 + 11250 = 11350

B. Government spending multiplier before and after the investment

Government Spending Multiplier = 1/MPS

Before = 3.33

After = 4

C. Tax multiplier before and after the investment

Tax multiplier = - MPC/MPS

Before = -2.33

After = -3

Part D: Nominal Interest Rate

I = r + π

π = inflation rate

r = real interest rate

so I = 5.5% + 2.1% = 7.6% (before investment)

I = 5.7% + 2.5% = 8.2% (after investment)

5. Idea Solution

C = 100 +0.75Y

where Y means Income and income bhi hamen di gae hai which is 15000 of after investment

so Y (income) = 15000 equation mein put ker dein

C = 100+ 0.75 (15000)

C = 100 + 11250 = 11350

B. Government spending multiplier before and after the investment

Government Spending Multiplier = 1/MPS

Before = 3.33

After = 4

C. Tax multiplier before and after the investment

Tax multiplier = - MPC/MPS

Before = -2.33

After = -3

Part D: Nominal Interest Rate

I = r + π

π = inflation rate

r = real interest rate

so I = 5.5% + 2.1% = 7.6% (before investment)

I = 5.7% + 2.5% = 8.2% (after investment)

6. Solution:
C = 100 +0.75Y
where Y means Income and income bhi hamen di gae hai which is 15000 of after investment
so Y (income) = 15000 equation mein put ker dein
C = 100+ 0.75 (15000)
C = 100 + 11250 = 11350

B. Government spending multiplier before and after the investment

Solution
Government Spending Multiplier = 1/MPS
Before = 3.33
After = 4

C. Tax multiplier before and after the investment
Solution
Tax multiplier = - MPC/MPS
Before = -2.33
After = -3

D: Nominal Interest Rate
Solution
I = r + π
π = inflation rate
r = real interest rate
so I = 5.5% + 2.1% = 7.6% (before investment)
I = 5.7% + 2.5% = 8.2% (after investment)
