The Weekend Quiz – October 17-18, 2020

Welcome to The Weekend Quiz. The quiz tests whether you have been paying attention or not to the blog posts that I post. See how you go with the following questions. Your results are only known to you and no records are retained.

1. Under current public sector debt-issuance arrangements (where sovereign governments match their deficits with issues of debt), the government and the private domestic sector cannot simultaneously spend less than they earn.

2. The estimates provided by institutions such as the OECD and the IMF of the size of the automatic stabilisers are typically biased downwards.

3. Governments concerned with their public debt ratio should encourage growth because the ratio will fall once economic growth resumes.
