National Accounting (the value of GDP should be the same all along the exercice)
Say that PmQ = 20 (market value of domestic production), J = 5 (imports), FC = 8.5 (total final consumption), IC = 4 (intermediate consumption), IT = 4 (total investment), Δinventories = 2.5 (change in inventories).
1- Value of GDP
a. 12
b. 14
c. 16
d. 18
2- What is the value of exports and the trade balance (net exports)?
a. 1
b. 4
c. 5
d. 6
3- What is the value of all the sources of products? What about the uses?

b. 17, 16
c. 20, 20
d. 25, 25
Say that private domestic consumption and public (i.e. government) investment have the following respective value: C = 5, GI = 2.
4- Calculate each component of the expenditure approach to GDP.
a. C = 5, I = 2, G =7, NX = 2
b. C = 5, I = 4.5, G =5.5, NX = 1
c. C = 5, I = 4.5, G =3.5, NX = 3
d. C = 5, I = 5, G =5, NX = 1

Now that you know the preceding, say that:
- The net revenues from abroad (NRA) are equal to 3
- The discrepancy between GDP and NI is due only to consumption of capital (CC = 1) and NRA.
- Wage earners pay half of the indirect taxes. They pay 1.5 of indirect taxes
- Wage earners are responsible for 99% of the private domestic consumption level in the economy
- Subsidies are equal to 1.
- As a whole, there are no net transfers given to households.
- W= 8, Πn = 4, iL = 2, R = 2,
- Direct tax rates are: tΠ = 5%, tiL = 10%, tR = 50%, tw = 20%.
