1). If the price of Australian-made shoes imported into the United States increase, then, at a result,
Answer: the GDP deflator increases but the consumer price index does not increase.
2). Suppose that U.S. mining companies purchase German-made ore trucks at a reduced price. By itself, what effect will this purchase have on the GDP deflator and in the CPI?
Answer: the CPI and the GDP deflator will be unaffected.
