Answer No. 1 Production possibility curve is a particular form of curve, which shows the possibility of production in a particular economy (Gwartney, Stroup, Sobel, Macpherson p.28). In an economy, the resources are scarce, therefore, it is important for the economy to make sure that, it keeps a balance between the productions and utilizes its resources appropriately. If the production possibility curve of an economy will move outwards then, the long run supply curve will have a positive change to the right. There will be an increase in supply of products as resources. If the computer technology will improve then, the supply of products produced by use of computer technology will also increase to a certain level. This will move the supply curve to the left.

Answer No. 3 The budget deficit is the excess of expenditure incurred by an economy over the incomes generated by it (Gwartney, Stroup, Sobel, Macpherson p.221). In order to ensure that the budget deficit is financed, the government has to ensure it has extra funds available with it. The government, also works out the methods in which, it asks for loans to other countries around the world. By borrowing from other countries and loaning out money to other countries, this now becomes part of our national debt and surplus (Gwartney, Stroup, Sobel, Macpherson p.221).

    In case of financial recession, there is a shortage of funds in the country. The people living in the country do not have enough money and government is also not able to provide enough subsidies to them. One of the ways to avoid the recessionary conditions and ensure better support to the economy is borrowing money from abroad. Borrowing of funds from other countries might solve the problem of the economy in the short run but, in the long run, the fiscal deficit for the country will increase. This will again put the economic condition of the country at stake. In this way, borrowing from abroad is not a proper method of coming out of recession.…

For the normal distribution, kurtosis is three. So K-3 measures excess kurtosis. Since the excess kurtosis for SCORE variable is positive, the distribution is leptokurtic (it has thick tails as compared to the normal distribution.…

During the years of 1990s, there was a shift in the economy from deficit to surplus. When the economy moved into fiscal surplus then, it’s spending towards the country declined to a certain level. Due to the decline, the level of subsidies had reduced and demand of products also decreases. With the increase in government spending aggregate demand does increase but, it is not always the case when, there is fiscal deficit in the country. Answer No.…
