Question

This problem set focuses on national accounts and the current account/balance of payments troubles that some southern European countries have experienced recently. Specifically, you will investigate the current account balances and the net foreign asset position of the GIPS countries (Greece, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain) and compare them to Germany. In order to successfully complete the assignment you need to download two data sets. The first data source is the IMF?s World Economic Outlook Data Base (the excel file DataforHW3.xls contains all the data you need from this source). The second data set contains information on the net foreign asset position (or net international investment position) of a range of countries compiled by Philip L. Lane and Gian Maria Milesi Feretti, available online at http://www.philiplane.org/EWN.html where you also find a link to their paper.
