Is the firm maximizing output relative to its labor cost?  Show how you know  

If it is not what should the firm do?

4)Assume exports =300, imports =400, tax revenue =1,100, government purchases =1,400, private domestic saving=900.  Then the level of private domestic investment is .   A. 600; B.700; C. 900; D. 1,100; E. 1300

5)Assume that GDP=4,800, consumption =3,400, private domestic savings =400, government purchases = 1,200 and net exports =-120. Which of the following is true (a) disposable income =3,800; (b) private domestic investments is 320 (c) government purchases will increase (d) investment will increase (e) all of the above

6)Assume you are a manager of a firm that employs 10 workers and pays each $15/hr. Further assume that the MP of the 10th worker is 5 units of output and that the price of the output is $4. According to economic theory in the short run what should you do?

7)Assuming the existence of economies of scale, if a firm finds that it can reduce its unit cost by decreasing its scale of production, it means that (a) it has too much production capacity relative to its demand. (b) it should try to produce less. (c} the law of diminishing returns has not take effect. (d) it has too much fixed overhead relative to its variable cost.

12) An increase in the marginal propensity to……..will decrease the size of the expenditure multiplier & therefore the IS curve will shift to the ……..and become steeper.  If  people save more and spend less, firms will experience an increase an increase in unintended inventories.  Firms will respond by decreasing production & national income will ………  (A) save, left, decrease  (b) consume, right, increase (c) save, left, increase (d) save, right , decrease

13) Which of the following is false?  (A) Y=C+I+G+NX  (B) YD=Y-TA+TR (C ) BS=TA-TR-G  (D) I-S=(G-TA-TR)+NX  (E) S + TA-TR= I+G+NX
