The Weekend Quiz – March 19-20, 2016

Welcome to The Weekend Quiz, which used to be known as the Saturday Quiz! The quiz tests whether you have been paying attention over the last seven days. See how you go with the following questions. Your results are only known to you and no records are retained.

1. If a national currency-issuing government stopped issuing public debt, then its deficit spending would be more expansionary than if it matched the deficits with new debt issues.



2. If the external sector is in surplus and thus is contributing to domestic economic growth, then the national government must run a fiscal surplus to stop the economy overheating.



3. On the day that the government issues debt to match ($-for-$) the increase in its deficit, non-government sector net worth increases.
