  The current account deficit of the United States is more than 6 percent of its gross domestic product—an all-time high. And the rest of the world, including other G7 countries such as Japan and Germany, must collectively run current account surpluses to finance this deficit. In trade terms, the Australian economy has had persistently large current account deficits for more than 50 years. One single factor that undermines balance of payments is Australia's narrow export base. [citation needed] [needs update]Dependent upon commodities, the Australian government has endeavoured to redevelop the Australian manufacturing sector.

Keynes did not lay out an explicit theory of price level. Early Keynesian models assumed wage and other price levels were fixed. These assumptions caused little concern in the s when inflation was stable, but by the mids inflation increased and became an issue for macroeconomic models. In A.W. Phillips set the basis for a price level theory when he made the empirical observation. 1 Accordingly, optimal reserves balance the macroeconomic adjustment costs incurred in consistent with the importance of current account adjustments in allowing for smoother Table 1 reports the regression results for Column (1) presents the baseline.

Economic crises struck developing countries during the early s' in large part as a consequence of governments' decision to borrow to finance their budget and current account deficits. t Export-processing zones are industrial areas set aside for MNCs with special rules or subsidies.

Macroeconomic adjustments to changes in the economic environment are to a large extent conditioned by the intertemporal choices of economic agents. When agents face an intertemporal budget constraint, a decision to alter current indebtedness implies changes in future consumption possibilities and will be based on expectations of the entire.

current account may just reflect the (possibly rapid) unwinding of those imbalances rather than playing any causal role per se in the macroeconomic adjustment that accompanies the reversal of the current account. In other words, the current account can be regarded as purely a by-product of other.

Such intense external shocks may have lasting effects and require significant economic adjustments. At the global level, our forecasts imply a more limited narrowing in current account balances than after the global financial crisis a decade ago, which partly reflects the smaller, precrisis global imbalances this time than during the housing.

(3) We have concluded that Kt is a monotonic sequence, and that it is also bounded. Now use a math theorem: a monotone bounded sequence has a limit.

The proof of this theorem establishes not.
