1. Irrespective of what the government does, the private domestic sector can still save overall, as long as the external sector delivers a surplus.

2. Central bank interest payments to the private banks on reserves reduces the private banks' incentive to advance credit to the private sector.

3. Rising government deficits indicate that its fiscal stance is becoming more expansionary.

    1. Simon, it took me months to learn to look into the questions for the deeper shades of meaning to get more questions right each week than wrong.
