- An economy starts off with a GDP per capital of 12,000 euros. How large will the GDP per capita be if it grows at an annual rate of 3 for 10 years? 3 for 30 years? 6 for 30 years?
*arrow_forward*At an annual growth rate of 2% it will take approximately years for a country's GDP to double. Over the next 70 years, how many times will GDP double, assuming the growth rate does not change? If GDP starts at a value of $10 million, then in 70 years the value of GDP will be $ million. In 70 years the value of GDP will be times larger than it is today.*arrow_forward*If a country’s GDP grows by 10% per year, why isn’t the number of years it takes to double the GDP simply 100%/10% = 10 years?*arrow_forward* - in england, suppose GDP per capita grows by 3.0% per year for 19 years. by how many times does this economy grow?
*arrow_forward*A country starts with real GDP per capita of 500, and is growing at 4.3% per year. After 70 years, real GDP per capita will be approximately...?*arrow_forward*If an economy's GDP will double in 15 years, then its growth rate must be about: 7% 15% 10% 4.7%*arrow_forward* - At an annual growth rate of 3.5% it will take approximately years for a country's GDP to double. Over the next 60 years, how many times will GDP double, assuming the growth rate does not change? If GDP starts at a value of $10 million, then in 60 years the value of GDP will be $ million. In 60 years the value of GDP will be times larger than it is today. ASUS
*arrow_forward*Small differences in growth rates in the size of the economy, over several decades, will result in big differences in the size of the economy. Pretend we start in 1950 and the U.S. growth in real GDP has been around 3.15%. This has resulted in real GDP growing 8 times over this 70-year period (1950 to 2020). If real GDP growth had been 4.0%, real GDP would be times larger. a. 8 (about the same growth as with 3.15% growth) b. 10 С. 14 d. 16*arrow_forward*If Japan has 4.5% per capita growth in GDP, how many years will it take for the country to triple its per capita GDP? At what growth rate should the country targets if it aimed to double its per capita GDP in 8 years?*arrow_forward* - If country A’s and country B’s GDP per capita are $10,000 and $5,000 this year, respectively. Country A is projected to grow on average 2% a year in the foreseeable future and country B is projected to grow on average 5% a year. How many years will it take for country B’s GDP per capita to equal that of country A? (Show calculation steps.)
*arrow_forward*It is observed that in a country in a given period of 20 years the average GDP growth rate has been 4%. However, it is observed that in this period the average GDP growth rate is 5% in the first 5 years and 3% in the last 5 years. How this difference in the average growth rates might be explained?*arrow_forward*In 2018, the country of Questville had a GDP of $39000.00 and the country of Mistania had a GDP of $19500.00, which is half, or 50% of Questville's GDP. If Questville grows at the slow rate of 1% for 5 years while Mistania grows at the fast rate of 6% for 5 years, what will Mistania's GDP be as a percentage of Questville's GDP in 5 years from now? Include the % sign in your answer. Does this example illustrate the concept of convergence? OYes SONO*arrow_forward*
