Group Topic: Switzerland(XXX) Economy: A Macroeconomic Study
Part A: GDP and GDP growth in XXX
Plot XXX’s GDP at market prices (current US$) and (using the Consumer price index data) calculate and plot GDP at constant prices (constant 2010 US$) for the period of 1990 to 2019. Calculate the average GDP at market prices (current US$) and average GDP at constant prices over the full sample period.
Calculate and plot the GDP growth rates (at both market prices and constant prices) over the full sample period. Calculate the average growth rates over the full sample period.
Using the Total Population data, calculate and plot GDP per capita at market prices (current US$), GDP per capita at constant prices (constant 2010 US$) for the period of 1990 to 2019. Calculate the average GDP per capita at market prices (current US$) and average GDP per capita at constant prices over the full sample period.
Calculate and plot the GDP per capita growth rates (at both market prices and constant prices) for the same period. Calculate the average GDP per capita growth rates at market prices (current US$) and average GDP per capita growth rates at constant prices for the period of 1990 to 2019.
Sub-divide the period into 3 periods (i) 1990 to 1999, (ii) 2000 to 2009, and (iii) 2010 to 2019, and carry out the same exercise as above.
Comment on the overall growth story of XXX during each of the sub-periods in detail.
Comment on the volatility of growth rates
Part B: Unemployment and Inflation in XXX
Plot the Total, Male and Female Unemployment Rates for the period of 1990 to 2019. Calculate the average Total, Male and Female Unemployment Rates for the period of 1990 to 2019.
Plot the Youth Total (ages 15-24), Youth Male (ages 15-24) and Youth Female (ages 15-24) Unemployment Rates for the period of 1990 to 2019. Calculate the average Youth Total (ages 15-24), Youth Male (ages 15-24) and Youth Female (ages 15-24) Unemployment Rates for the period of 1990 to 2019.
Calculate and plot the Inflation Rate based on the Consumer Price Index for the period of 1990 to 2019. Calculate the average Inflation Rate based on the Consumer Price Index for the period of 1990 to 2019.
Sub-divide the period into 3 periods (i) 1990 to 1999, (ii) 2000 to 2009, and (iii) 2010 to 2019, and carry out the same exercise as above.
Comment on the overall unemployment and inflation story of XXX during each of the sub-periods in detail.
Phillips Curve: Use a scatterplot to plot the change in the inflation rate (measured using the CPI) on the vertical axis against the total unemployment rate on the horizontal axis since 1990. Comment on your findings.
Okun’s Law: Use a scatterplot to plot the change in the total unemployment rate on the vertical axis against the rate of growth of GDP at constant prices on the horizontal axis since 1990. Comment on your findings.
Part C: Trade & Budget Balance in XXX
Plot the Exports (X) and Imports (IM) of goods and services as a % of GDP. Calculate and plot Net Exports (NX = X – IM) as a % of GDP. Comment on the evolution of the trade balance, i.e. net exports since 1990.
Plot the Tax Revenues (T) as a % of GDP and General Government Final Consumption Expenditure (G) as a % of GDP. Calculate and plot Budget Balance (G-T) as a % of GDP. Comment on the evolution of the budget balance since 1990.
Part D: Components of XXX GDP
Plot the components of GDP, i.e. Households and NPISHs final consumption expenditure (C) as a % of GDP, Gross fixed capital formation (I) as a % of GDP, General Government Final Consumption Expenditure (G) as a % of GDP, Exports (X) and Imports (IM) of goods and services as a % of GDP and comment on their evolution since 1990.
