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)?

b. 4
c. 5

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%.
