GDP is measured through
the expenditures on goods and services by all levels of government included
Net exports of goods and services are defined as equal to
the value of exports of goods and services minus the imports of goods and services
In calculating GDP, we must
add the market value of exports and subtract the market value of imports
In 2007, Candamia's consumption expenditure was 13 billion, interest, rent, and profit was 1.5 billion, government expenditures on goods and services were 3 billion, net exports of goods and services amounted to 2 billion, and investment was 8 billion: the total expenditure was
26 billion
If consumption was 70 percent of GDP and both investment and government expenditure was 18 percent of each other than
exports must be less than imports
The income approach measures GDP as
the incomes paid households for the resources they own
To measure GDP, using the income approach, one of the adjustments made to net domestic product at factor cost is
add depreciation
During 2008, net domestic product factor cost equals 3,300 billion. Indirect taxes minus subsides equals 200 billion, depreciation equals 800 billion, statistical discrepancy equals zero, and net operating surplus equals 150 billion. The country's GDP is
4,300 billion
Real GDP is all final goods and services produced in a year within a country valued at
base year prices
Nominal GDP measures the value of goods and services produces in a given year valued using
prices of the same year
An increase in nominal GDP could result from an increase in
production and price
Last year, a country produced 10,00 pizzas and 30,000 burgers and nothing else. The pizzas sold for 9.00 each and burgers for 2,00 each. The nominal GDP was
The base year is 2008. A country only produces MP3 Players. The price of an MP3 player in 2008 was 100. The price of an MP3 player was 90 in 2009. The quantity of MP3 players produces in 2008 was 10,000 units and in 2009 was 10,500 units. Nominal GDP in 2008 equals
A reason real GDP does not accurately measure in our standard of living is because real GDP
does not measure all goods and services produced
U.S real GDP
excludes the value of underground production and leisure time.
As measured, GDP omits
Illegal sales of goods and services, changes in the amount of leisure time, and household production of goods and services
Goods and services such as environmental quality, leisure time, and household production are not included in GDP because they are not
bought in the markets
Household production such as baking bread at home, is not included in the GDP because it
does not involve a market transaction.
The calculation of GDP excludes
a family member painting the family home

intermediate goods and services

expressed in the prices of a base year
What is NOT a part of the income used in the income approach?
taxes paid by the person
The difference between nominal GDP and real GDP is
the prices used in their calculations
Instead of taking dirty clothes home to GA you got to the laundromat. Using the Laundromat means that
the 1.75 you use to pay for the Laundromat will be included in your GDP.
Leisure time is the economic good
because the more leisure time we have, the better off we are

When the economy is at full time employment, the

equal to the natural unemployment rate
During a recession,
real GDP is less than the potential GDP.
