This article aims to discuss the difference in elasticity to imports and the aggregate consumption between the two countries namely Indonesia and America with time series 1988-2017. Indonesia as a developing country shows that changes in the inflation rate led to a single percent change in Indonesian imports. GDP value changes cause a percent change in Indonesia's aggregate consumption. Whereas in America, foreign exchange reserves, the rate of inflation and consumption is elastic towards American imports.
