“Is the Big Mac index a good measure of Purchasing Power Parity?” Purchasing Power Parity is a concept that states that the exchange rates of different countries are in equilibrium when the purchasing power is the same in all the countries. A basket of goods is taken into the picture which is available for sale in those countries.Thus according to the theory of Purchasing Power Parity, the exchange rates are in equilibrium, when the above mentioned ‘basket of goods’ cost the same in all the countries. If a country’s domestic price level increases, that is, if the country is facing inflation, that country’s exchange rate must be depreciated in order to return to PPP.

The calculation of PPP is a tough one as its difficult to find a comparable basket of goods for different countries.

They also argue that a competitive equilibrium will be reached based on a given set of resources under the condition of Pareto optimal where 'no one can be made better off without making someone else worse off'. A competitive equilibrium is efficient, in production and consumption and welfare is maximised.

Autumn Assignment- Demand and Price Elasticity of Demand Part A Price elasticity of demand is a measure of the sensitivity of demand for a product to changes in its price. (Evan Davis et.al. 2003) An elastic demand means that the quantity demanded is responsive to changes in price; inelastic meaning that the quantity demanded is unresponsive to changes in price. PED can be measured by dividing the percentage change in quantity demanded by the percentage change in price. There are a number of factors effecting price elasticity of demand, the overriding determinant being the availability of substitute goods to the consumer, the more that are made available, the higher the elasticity is likely to be as buyers can easily switch from one product to another.
