  • 3 Economics Questions (Multiple Choice)?

    During and after World War II, the Treasury demanded that the Federal Reserve hold interest rates low to reduce the borrowing costs for the Federal government's deficit. This meant that

    a. the Fed could not conduct fiscal policy independently of the Treasury.

    b. the Treasury could not conduct fiscal policy independently of the Congress, which controlled the Fed.

    c. the Fed could not conduct monetary policy independently of the Treasury.

    d. the Treasury could not conduct monetary policy independently of the Congress, which controlled the Fed.

    The Korean War did not create sustained inflation, unlike the Civil War, World War I and World War II. The reason was

    a. the Truman and Eisenhower administrations imposed price controls within a week of the start of the war, and left them in place through the end of the 1950's. This meant that inflation never had a chance to start.

    b. the Korean War was fought with equipment left over from World War II. This meant that no large increase in military spending was needed, so aggregate demand did not increase substantially.

    c. the Korean War was fought by the United Nations, with many countries contributing soldiers and equipment. This meant that the Federal Reserve did not have to print much added money to spend on U.S. armed forces, so the money supply did not increase rapidly.

    d. the Truman and Eisenhower administrations raised taxes enough to pay for added military spending. This meant that the Federal Reserve did not have to buy extra Treasury bonds, so the money supply did not increase rapidly.

    The Bretton Woods conference of 1944 created two institutions that still exist. These institutions are

    a. the United Nations and the NATO Alliance.

    b. the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank

    c. the World Trade Organization and the European Central Bank.

    d. the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and the International Labor Organization.

    Tax cuts may fail to add much to consumer spending, and hence may not increase aggregate demand very much, because

    a. lower taxes automatically reduce transfer payments, so there is no net effect on disposable income.

    b. households may save their added disposable income, rather than spend it, meaning the marginal propensity to consume is small.

    c. households may spend their added disposable income, rather than save it, meaning the marginal propensity to consume is large.

    d. lower taxes automatically increase transfer payments, so there is no net effect on disposable income.

  • Are primary school students allowed to use calculators in their math class?

    Hi, I'm doing a survey relating to our dependency on technology. So, I was wondering if primary school students are allowed to use calculators in whichever country you may be? Because back in my days, I was not allowed to use calculator at all, we had to memorize addition, subtraction, multiplication and division tables. So I want to know if there has been changes. Thanks!

    b. a retailer might not reduce the price of soup, since people's preference for hot soup might increase when the weather is cold.

    b. crude oil prices are falling, refineries are switching to their winter blends of gasoline, and the demand for jet fuel has increased as a result of the Labor Day travel season.

    c. Gulf Coast refineries managed to remain open in spite of Hurricane Isaac, the midwest drought has raised the price of ethanol-based fuel, and many people canceled their vacations to watch the political conventions on television.
