    It goes down initially since the plan cannot be apply straight away due to the firms having contracts etc. Once these contracts finish and new ones are started, that is when the J curve begins to go up.

    Can someone explain reasons behind the J curve please, why does it go down then up?
    The J-curve shows that the initial devaluation of a currency firstly leading to a worsening of the balance of payments (the down bit) and then it gets better (the up bit) It goes down first of all because the devaluation of the currency means that all the goods ordered before the devaluation still have to be paid for, and then it rebalances itself, there's more domestic demand and less imports (weak pound, imports dear, exports cheaper)

    the marshall lerner principle.
    time lag for depreciation/devaluation so people will still pay more for imports in short run as they are more inelastic, however in long run if they are elastic then imports should decrease as it becomes more expensive thus the uk is more internationally competitive and so can lower the deficit run a surplus

    Does no-one else learn endogenous and exogenous shocks?! haha! Just me then! And exogenous shock (outside the economy) would be like Hurricane Katrina, something that destroys each demand or supply conditions but we couldn't control her! Endogenous would be inside the economy, so stock-building by firms, political influences on the economic cycle by the Government, speculative bubbles bursting etc x
    Extending on this can be that if e.g A hurricane affected agricultural land then this could create a shortage in a certain raw material which could cause a sudden increase in price for raw materials. That links on with cost push inflation. Also political parties tend to generate booms during an election in order to favour more votes and when the economy operates close to it's productive potential, they sort of use a deflationary fiscal stance to decrease AD by a moderate amount.

    Care to share some bond yields statistics?

    Personally I know stuff like MNC share of world trade, growth, UK and Eurozone interest rates, laws about the single currency.
    Currently the UK 10-year gilts yield 2.14% which is sustainable - anything around the 6-7% mark would be deemed unsustainable and anything above that is 'junk' as far as i'm aware

    what is the time scale for a fiscal and monetry policy?
    Fiscal depends on whether a time limit has been imposed (ie. raised/lowered taxes for 6 months or such a policy)

    Monetary has no definite date but the BoE tries to estimate 2 years down the line, as this is approx the time it takes to have effect
