A permanent fiscal expansion will also shift the AA curve to the left and down. The nominal exchange rate appreciates, i.e. E decreases. 61) [(0.75 $/euro) (100 euro per a European basket)]/[(125 $/U.S. basket)] 0.60 US baskets/european basket. 16

17 Answer Key Testname: HOMEWORK ) When a currency is devalued from E0 to E1, the equilibrium shifts from point 1 to 2. Both output and money supply increase. 63) [(0.9 $/euro) (40 euro per a European basket)]/[(50 $/U.S. basket)] 64) (a) Liquidity trap implies R = 0. R = 0 = R + (Ee - E)/E (b) Since R = 0, the equation in part A, the interest parity condition, implies: E = Ee/(1 - R ). Since Ee and R are fixed, E cannot change. 65) Changes in the domestic money supply; changes in the domestic price level; changes in the expected future exchange rates; changes in the foreign interest rate and shifts in the aggregate real money demand. 66) When the real exchange rate increases, domestic products are cheaper relative to foreign products. Due to this, exports increase as foreigners demand more of our exports. The change in imports is ambiguous because fewer units of imports are purchased (the volume effect), but each foreign unit is now more expensive (the value effect). Remember: exports and imports are measured in terms of domestic output, i.e. dollar value, not volume of units. However, we often assume that the volume effect outweighs the value effect, so that imports decrease when the real exchange rate rises. 67) The AA-curve is the specific levels of E and Y under which the money and foreign exchange markets are in equilibrium. The AA-curve has a negative slope because an increase in Y will cause E to fall (a domestic currency appreciation). The factors that affect it are: the money supply, price level, expected exchange rate, foreign interest rates, and the level of real money demand. 68) A rise in domestic real income, Y, leads to a rise in disposable income, Yd. This raises the spending on imports, IM, thus lowering the current account, CA, and reducing aggregate demand, AD. However, the rise in Yd also causes a rise in consumption, C, and raises aggregate demand, AD, by more than the corresponding decrease. 69) Correct answers include any situations that involve: (1) an decrease in government spending (eg. Decrease in military spending) (2) an increase in taxes. (3) a fall in Investment demand (4) a price increase, which would lower net export demand (assuming E and P stay constant) (5) a fall in foreign prices (assuming E and P stay constant) (6) an autonomous fall in consumption demand (as long as it is not entirely a change in import demand) (7) a shift to demanding more foreign goods at the expense of domestic good demand 17

18 Answer Key Testname: HOMEWORK ) When the Real appreciated, so did Brazilʹs real exchange rate, thus lowering the economyʹs competitiveness in foreign markets. In an effort to maintain capital inflows into the country, and to defend the real against depreciation, Brazil was forced to adopt very high domestic interest rates, which in turn increased the difficulties in repaying its public debt, and led to a rise in the governmentʹs fiscal deficit. As banks failed and unemployment spread, foreigners began to anticipate a collapse of the Brazilian economy, and the IMF stepped in with a stabilization fund of $40.5 billion to prevent Brazil from devaluing. The aid, however, did not help, and Brazil devalued the Real by 8 percent in January of 1999, and allowed it float and lose a further 40 percent of its value. 71) 1. Allow the government to fight domestic unemployment despite the lack of effective monetary policy. 2. Improve in the current account. 3. Increase foreign reserves held by the central bank. 72) The level of government demand, taxes, and investment; the domestic and foreign price levels; variations in domestic consumption behavior; and the foreign demand for home output. 73) Four main reasons: Managed Floating-Present monetary system is hybrid of pure fixed and floating rate systems; fixed exchange rates give insight to effects of foreign exchange intervention under floating rates. Regional Currency Arrangements-Exchange rate unions exist where member nations fix mutual exchange rates. Developing Countries and Countries in Transition-Nearly half the world engages in currency pegging. Lessons of Past-Fixed exchange rates were the norm in many historical periods; many economists propose resurrection of some fixed rate system. 74) Defined as: EP /P (the exchange rate multiplied by foreign prices, divided by domestic prices). While the nominal exchange rate measures how much of a foreign currency one can buy with a unit of domestic currency, the real exchange rate measures how many goods and services one could buy. A rise in the real exchange rate (a depreciation of domestic currency) means that domestic goods are cheaper compared to foreign goods, so exports increase and imports decrease. Aggregate demand increases and the CA rises. A fall in the real exchange rate has the opposite effect: Aggregate demand decreases and the CA falls. 18
