In addition to responding with a quantitative answer, briefly, describe how you arrived at your answers.
Net foreign investment is equal to net exports. The value of exports minus imports is net exports. Net exports = Exports – Imports = 50 – 150 = -100 billion G. As a result net foreign investment equals 100 billion G. Gross domestic product is the value of finished goods and services manufactured within a country in a defined period of time. GDP equals to the sum of consumption, government expenditures, investments and net exports. GDP = C + I + G + NX GDP = 350 + 100 + 200 – 100 = 550 billion G. Gross national product equals GDP plus income earnings from foreigners minus income payments to other countries. GNP = C + I + G + NX + NY GNP = GDP + NY GNP = 550 + (25 – 75) = 500 billion G.
