MUST BE Deliverable Length: 900-1,100 words
One of the more important measures in regard to international
economics is the balance of payments. Think of it as a national
accounting measure that looks at the flow of goods and services
into and out of an economy in a given period of time. It also
shows capital flows into and out of a country. Until 1980, the
United States tended to run a positive-to-neutral balance of
payments position and was a creditor nation. In the course of the
past 30 years, the United States has moved to a negative balance of
payments and to being a debtor nation.
Review and discuss the following:
- Discuss the importance of the balance of payments as an accounting measure.
- Discuss the current account and its components and the capital and financial accounts and their components.
- How important is the U.S. deficit in traded goods in regard to the balance of payments?
