Chapter 10: Gross Domestic Product (GDP) 2 Definitions:  1) Measures total income of everyone in the economy. 2) Measures total expenditure on the economy’s output of Goods & Services Should memorize this definition! GDP: The market value of all final Goods & Services produced within a country in a given time  period.  Market value: Needs to be bought or sold  housework is not included  Fina : No intermediate goods.  The whole car is sold is GDP, not the steel that is made.  Goods & Services: Includes tangible goods (things you can touch such as a bike) and intangible  things (things you can’t touch such as phone service). Produced: Currently produced goods.  Used stuff does not count. It counts when it is produced.  When a used car is sold, it doesn’t count.  Only when the car is made, is when it counts. Within a country: It doesn’t matter who made it, if it’s in that country­ it counts as that  country’s GDP. In a given time period: Quarterly or every 3 months. U.S (17.968) and China (11.385) has the largest GDP. Y (GDP) = C + I + G + NX (Exports­Imports) C = Consumption (70% of our GDP)  Total spending by household on Goods & Services  Included as rental payment for apartment I (Business) = Investment  Total spending on goods that will be used in the future to produce  more goods. This is not stocks or wages.  It is businesses buying other stuff.  Capital equipment (tools, machinery, computers)  Structures (factors, office buildings)  Inventory (goods that are produced but are yet to be sold) G = Government purchases  All spending on Goods & Services purchased by the Gov’t.  Does not include Transfer Payment such as social security or welfare. NX = Net Export (Exports – Imports)  Take out the stuff that wasn’t bought in America. A. Debbie spends $400 to buy her husband dinner in Boston. GDP goes up by $400 because consumption goes up by $400. B. Sarah spends $2000 on a laptop for her business that was built in China. I increase by 2000 but Import will go up or Net Exports will go down. C. Jane spends $800 on a computer for her business that was built in U.S but it was last year’s  model. Nothing changes. D. GM builds 10 mil cars but only 940 mil sold. Consumption increase by 940 mil and Investment (Inventory) increases by 60 mil. Real vs. Nominal GDP Nominal­ value of outputs using current prices (not corrected for inflation) Real­ values output using prices at a base year (correcting for inflation) *Remember inflation in the general rise in prices*  Pen Busines                                             TR/                       Real GDP (Base) 2015 $1 2000 $2000 $2000 2016 $2 1600 $3200 $1600 Real GDP = Quantity times base year.
