The Weekend Quiz – April 23-24, 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. A fiscal deficit equivalent to 5 per cent of GDP always signals a more expansionary fiscal intent from government than a deficit outcome equivalent to 3 per cent of GDP.

2. Government deficit spending which is accompanied by a bond sale to the non-government sector adds less to aggregate demand than would be the case if there was no bond sale accompanying the deficit.

3. If the external balance is always in surplus, then the government can safely run a surplus and not impede economic growth.
