Apply the reading and research you have done to answer questions dealing with production, unemployment, and inflation. This is a multi-part assignment, so make sure that you have addressed each question or topic. The best way to approach this assignment is to prepare your responses in outline form following the order of each question/topic. This will help you keep track of your responses.
Submit a 4- to 5-page paper that addresses the following questions. Be sure to use references within the paper to support your answers.
- Why is there unemployment even when the economy is at “full employment”? What are some “costs of unemployment”?
- Is the CPI a biased measure of the inflation rate? Explain your answer.
- Explain how some government tax revenue and spending can depend on the state of the economy.
- Explain some limitations of using GDP as an indicator of standard of living (be sure to do some research on your own to find any alternative measures).
Use information from the modular background readings as well as any good quality resource you can find. Cite all resources you use and provide a reference list at the end of your paper.
Length: 4–5 typed and double-spaced pages in 12-point Times New Roman font.
In addition to the overall quality, depth, grammar, and organization of the paper, the following will, in particular, be assessed:
The level of your understanding of the key concepts of the major macroeconomic indicators.
