Mean and standard deviation of export during the period 2001 to 2014 is 16.32 and 10.64 respectively. Mean and standard deviation of import is 37.07 and 27.20. In both the cases, trade between India and BRICS nation is very fluctuated and irregular. Coefficient of variation of export and import shows that the fluctuation is around 0.65(or 65%) and 0.73(or 73%) during the period. Mean and standard deviation of the trade balance is 20.75 and 16.85 respectively, and indicates 81% of variation as coefficient of variation.

2 shows balance of trade between India and BRICS nations since 2001 to 2014. Export and import are both positive values and balance of trade is calculated by deducting import from the export.

Balance of trade shows consistently negative with slight deviation till 2010, after 2010 balance of trade rises exponentially in negative direction which means the import value rises exponentially also. In 2013, it reduces but next year it is again at the …show more content…
The index of trade concentration is widely used to measure the degree of trade diversification over various products. Its value lies between 0 and 1 and a value closer to zero indicates less product concentration i.e. higher product diversification. From the table2 it can be seen that the values of HHI export and import both ranges closer to zero, which indicates less product concentration and high product diversification. While in the year 2005 to 2009 HHI of export indicates that there is slightly higher product concentration as compared to other years. This situation arises because there was an increase in processed petroleum oils, refined copper and copper alloys, cotton yarns and its products, medicament mixtures, diamonds (not mounted or set) and other modified goods. Basically, in these years, India’s exports increase in engineering goods, chemical products, Gems and Jewelleries. The mean HHI value of export from India to BRICS for the whole period 2001- 2014 is 0.08 this reflects that India’s export to BRICS nation has been highly diversified and India’s export value is equally distributed among the commodities. While on the other side mean HHI value of import from India to BRICS for the whole period 2001- 2014 is 0.04. This reflects that India’s import from BRICS has been less concentrated and highly diversified. But from the standard deviation (0.02)

    The United States has the highest current account deficit in the world, peaking in 2006 at $806.7 billion USD. From a trade balance in the 1990s, the deficit grew steadily until 2006, after which it rapidly shrank to $380.8 billion in 2009, a fall of 53.8%, and has since grown a bit again at a much slower rate, ending at about $450 billion from 2010 through 2012 (Figure 9). This trend is consistent with economic logic, which predicts that the current account will move toward deficit during expansionary years as imports outstrip exports and toward surplus during contractionary years as imports are forced to fall. The move toward trade balance during the recession years reflects this, especially since the currency weakens after 2009. A weak currency has a strong impact on the current account, driving the relative prices of domestic goods down while making imports relatively more expensive.…

    Income inequality is the extent income is distributed in an uneven manner among the population (McConnell, Brue, & Flynn, 2011). For more than 30 years, in the U.S., the income inequality has been on a steady rise. The gap between the very rich and everyone else is a gargantuan proportion, by every major statistical measure. In today’s reports, the top 10% of the U.S. population is making an average of nine times the income as the entire bottom 90%, averaging 38 times more income (Inequality.org, 2017). Before 1980, the lower-income earners owned a larger portion of the total U.S. income than they do today.…
