Readers Questions IV

You are welcome to ask questions on Economics. However, due to volume of questions, I can no longer promise to answer all questions.

I will post the answer on this blog, for everyone to benefit from.

I shall try to answer the economics question and / or point to other resources but please bear in mind.

  1. The replies will be guidance and not for duplication. Your essays should be your own work.
  2. My speciality is economics for British A Level standard. My university economics is rusty in parts, because generally I don’t use it in teaching A level economics.
  3. I can’t guarantee to always give full answers it also depends on my time schedule.
  4. I will answer as a new post. Check home page of blog for new post. With question and answers
  5. Generally, I don’t answer questions, which involve mathematical calculations, they tend to be doing someone’s homework. however, I may give examples, of calculations, if I think it helps explain economics principles.

I studied PPE at Lady Margaret Hall college, Oxford University, and currently work as an Economics A Level teacher. I have also examined several different economic units for Edexcel AS and A2.

  5. Hi, here’s my question:

    Should national growth figures be adjusted for the amount of Quantitative Easing undertaken by the central bank during the financial period?

    As a (very simplistic) example; an economy has a GDP of $5,000 bn, during the financial period the central bank creates $500 bn in Quantitative Easing in order to invest in the financial services industry. At the end of the period GDP has fallen to $4,950 bn. Has the real economy been devalued by 1% or by 11% as the QE investment has seemingly disappeared, effectively hiding a $500bn economic contraction.
