1 Name: Date: 1. In the long run, the level of national income in an economy is determined by its: A) factors of production and production function. B) real and nominal interest rate. C) government budget surplus or deficit. D) rate of economic and accounting profit. 2. The two most important factors of production are: A) goods and services. B) labor and energy. C) capital and labor. D) saving and investment. 3. The production function feature called constant returns to scale means that if we: A) multiply capital by z1 and labor by z2, we multiply output by z3. B) increase capital and labor by 10 percent each, we increase output by 10 percent. C) increase capital and labor by 5 percent each, we increase output by 10 percent. D) increase capital by 10 percent and increase labor by 5 percent, we increase output by 7.5 percent. 4. If bread is produced by using a constant returns to scale production function, then if the: A) number of workers is doubled, twice as much bread will be produced. B) amount of equipment is doubled, twice as much bread will be produced. C) amounts of equipment and workers are both doubled, twice as much bread will be produced. D) amounts of equipment and workers are both doubled, four times as much bread will be produced. 5.

2 6. A competitive, profit-maximizing firm hires labor until the: A) marginal product of labor equals the wage. B) price of output multiplied by the marginal product of labor equals the wage.

B) the productivity of labor increases. C) the price of output decreases. D) the supply of capital decreases. 8. An increase in the supply of capital will: A) increase the real rental price of capital. B) decrease the real rental price of capital. C) increase the productivity of capital.

B) the rate on 30-year government bonds. C) the prime rate on loans. D) no particular interest rate, since it is assumed that various interest rates tend to move up and down together. 23.
