Balance of payments

Interactive technical note where students can learn how to draft a balance of payments and learn how it works. This is structured in three dynamics with very different objectives. The first two focus on an orderly or systematic drafting of a balance of payments, defining its structure and assigning a place to each item and the corresponding items to each sub-balance. There are also exercises with some simple questions to test the students´ understanding of the measurement and interpretation of a balance of payments and there are some practical applications of using a balance of payments as an instrument for economic analysis.
