4. Analyze the relationship between Australia's persistent CAD and high level of net foreign liabilities. In your answer discuss the main components of Australia's CAD and the factors affecting the size of the current account deficit over time (20 Marks)The current account shows all the transactions involved from money being received (income) and money being spent (expenditure) for exports and imports of goods, services, incomes and transfers. Over the last decade, Australia has had a persistent Current Account Deficit, meaning that Australia has imported more goods, and services than it has exported. This has been caused by both cyclical and structural factors, where from the period of 1996-2005, Australia's CAD has tripled due to these two main factors Due to Australia's persistent Current Account Deficit, this means that it must be financed by a surplus in the capital and financial account through debt and equity borrowings, which make up Australia's net foreign liabilities.Australia's Current account balance has four major items. These items include:* Goods Balance- referring to exports (goods credits) and imports (goods debits) of merchandise* Services- including such things as tourism, education, insurance, transport, shipping and finance* Net Income, referring to the income received from Australian owned assets minus the payment of income for foreign owned assets in Australia* Net current Transfers, referring to the receipts less payments for foreign aid, migrants funds and pensionsThe causes of Australia's ongoing current Account deficit are both cyclical and structural in nature. In cyclical terms, Australia's domestic economy has tended to grow faster than that of the world economy, where import demand tends to outstrip export demand, causing a deficit in the goods balance and subsequently an increase in the Current Account Deficit. This cause of Australia's CAD can be seen clearly in years 2003, 2004 and 2005. In these three years Australia recorded a goods deficit of -18478, -23522, -23599m, subsequently leading to a CAD of -41581m, -47780, and -57, 170 in all three years. In structural terms the underlying problem of the CAD is the size of the net income deficit, which reflects the cost of servicing both debt and equity borrowings (known as total external liabilities) in the Australian Economy. This means that the payment of interest, profits and dividends to foreign lenders and investors exceeds the receipt of income from Australian investment and lending overseas. In 2004-05, Australia had a net income deficit of -31216m representing 54.6%...
