Principles of Macroeconomics, Ch. 5: Elasticity and Its Application

Question 1:

Suppose a city has a fixed quantity of lakeside property. Each lot is one acre and cannot be subdivided. How does this affect the price elasticity of supply for lakeside lots?

Question 2:

A country has a fixed quantity of a nonrenewable resource. The resource is consumed when used in production processes and cannot be renewed. The resource can be extracted and used over many years (this makes it different from (1), where lakeside lots are not consumed). How does this affect the price elasticity of supply for the resource today?

Question 1: What difficulties arise when trying to compare two countries’ standards of living using their respective GDPs? How can nominal GDP be adjusted to make a better comparison between countries and for the same country over time?

Question 2: Gross domestic product (GDP) is the sum of consumption spending, investment spending, government production of services, and net exports (exports minus imports). Identify a good or service for each of these five components, treating exports and imports separately.
