What's in and what's not in GDP?
Definition: GDP is defined as: the market value of currently produced, final goods and services produced annually within a country's borders.
It turns out that nearly each term in this definition is there for a reason and that if we look briefly at each of the terms we will have a better sense of what GDP is - and what it is not. First, however, let's fast forward and acknowledge that GDP is NOT a measure of economic well-being - a point first made by Kuznets who developed the national income accounts, and more recently presented by Cobb, Halstead, and Rowe in their 1995 Atlantic Monthly article: "If GDP is UP, Why is America Down?" Now let's look at the individual terms and see where this divergence comes into play. GDP is the market value ... Market price is the common denominator for the tons of steel, bushels of apples, or gallons of wine produced in an economy. GDP is simply the weighted sum of output from all sectors of the economy, where output is valued at market prices. The rationale for this approach is that the market prices reflect what individuals pay for these goods and services, and thus prices must reflect how people value them. If you pay $16 for a CD, then it must be worth $16 to you, and thus the market value can be viewed as a measure of value created. If 10 CDs are produced and sold at a price of $16, then $160 worth of value has been created. Because of the nature of the GDP calculations, natural disaster can provide a boost to the economy in much the same way as a war. An example would be the boost to GDP given by the recovery efforts following the destruction of hurricane Andrew. It also means the enormous sums spent on security tend to push GDP higher. As Cobb (1995) points out, the bombing in Oklahoma City gave the economy a little boost as it generated demand for security systems.…...

Yasir ArafatId No. 62B.B.A 13th BatchDepartment of BankingUniversity of Dhaka | Date of Submission08.o7.09 | Introduction to GDP A region's gross domestic product, or GDP, is one of the ways of measuring the size of its economy. The GDP of a country is defined as the total market value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time (usually a calendar year). It is also considered the sum of value added at every stage of production (the intermediate stages) of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time. Components of GDP Each of the variables C (Consumption), I (Investment), G (Government spending) and X − M (Net Exports) (where GDP = C + I + G + (X − M) as above) C (Consumption) is private consumption in the economy. This includes most personal expenditures of households such as food, rent, medical expenses and so on but does not include new housing. I (Investment) is defined as investments by business or households in capital. Examples of investment by a business include construction of a new mine, purchase of software, or purchase of machinery and equipment for a factory. Spending by households (not government) on new houses is also included in Investment. In contrast to its colloquial meaning, 'Investment' in GDP does not mean......

The Real Meaning of Gdp

...Project—— The real meaning of GDP I. Background Since 1985, when the State Council of China approved to establish a System of National Accounting (SNA), using the gross domestic product (GDP) to measure the national economy, more and more people are getting familiar to this word. We must have heard about it for countless times. At the end of 2010, China has overtaken Japan as the world's second biggest economy in terms of GDP, which has drawn attention all around the world and has made Chinese people proud of the rapid development over the past decade. However, there are still a large quantity of people in China or even in the world that know nothing about GDP. Moreover, still many people do not fully understand the real meaning of GDP even they have heard about this economic term before. GDP per capita is often considered an indicator of a country's standard of living whereas there are limitations and criticisms against the belief that GDP measures a country’s living standard. Many economists (for example, who? Add sources) argue that GDP is an empty abstraction devoid of any link to the real world, and, therefore, has little or no value in economic analysis. Many environmentalists (for example, who? Add sources) argue that GDP is a poor measure of social progress because it does not take harm to the environment into account. Thus, it is important to find out the real meaning of GDP and its value to economic analysis. II. Statement of the problem First , this report......

Outline and Evaluate the Learning Theory as an Example of Attachment.

...The learning theory, firstly proposed by Dolland Miller (1950) argues that attachment is a form of nurture and so is learnt. Behaviourists came up with the idea that it is learnt either through classical or operant conditioning. The learning theory was introduced by behaviourists who base most of their explanation on the effects of nurturing. They proposed that all behaviour is learned rather than inborn and In terms of attachment, through either classical or operant conditioning. Psychologists have based their explanation of attachment on Pavlov’s experiments into classical conditioning. They argue that for infants the sensation of hunger and the need for food is an unconditioned stimulus and producing a sense of pleasure happens when the baby receives food. The baby then has an unconditioned response to receiving food. The person who produces the food becomes associated with the pleasure the baby feels. If that is repeated enough the baby then reacts in a similar way to the mother as it does to food, even in the absence of food. The baby then learns to become attached to the mother. Operant conditioning states that, any behaviour that produces a positive reinforcement such as food will be repeated. Behaviours that switch off something unpleasant are also likely to be repeated (negative reinforcement). This can be applied to attachment in the sense that a new-born baby will cry in response to feelings of discomfort, which come from being hungry or cold. The sound of a......

...economic growth. Therefore, there is a need to explore the genuine relationship between entrepreneurship, innovation and economic development. Entrepreneurship has numerous definitions and one of the most acknowledged literatures is Schumpeter’s (1934) theory which viewed entrepreneurship as a creative reply to a problem or opportunity. On the other hand, innovation is simply doing something in a way which is new, different and better (Wickham, 2006). Nonetheless, in the process of realizing economic growth, problems will definitely occur and thus creativity and problem solving capabilities may play a significant role in the relationships above. While it may be true that innovation, as a crucial part of the entrepreneurial process, and entrepreneurship both have positive effects on economic growth, the overall GDP of a domain country will decrease as the rate of entrepreneurship has been driven above the equilibrium. At the same time, creativity and problem solving are fundamental in these relationships. This essay aims to deeply illustrate the relationship between entrepreneurship, innovation and economic growth separately through theoretical literature and empirical evidence in section 2, then in section 3 demonstrate the role creativity and problem solving play in the relationships above with examples and finally draw a conclusion. 2.

Definition

...Definitions A definition is a statement that gives the meaning of a concept. For simple and relatively concrete concepts such as ‘Table’ we can understand them without definitions by simply seeing them. But most concepts are abstract and complex and to understand them definitions are important tool of knowledge. A definition does the following functions: a. It clarifies the boundaries of a concept. b. It clarifies the relationships among concepts. c. It clarifies the referents of the concepts. Vagueness and Ambiguity A term is ‘vague’ means it is hazy obscure and imprecise for example the words love, happiness, rich or poor are vague. We can rarely tell whether they apply to a given situation or not. How rich one has to be in order to be called rich? An ‘ambiguous expression’ is one that can be interpreted as having more than one clearly distinct meaning in a given context for example: words such as proper, light, critical, bank can be used ambiguously. If one were to describe an action as proper, does this mean proper in moral sense or proper in the sense of being socially acceptable? The difference between ambiguity and vagueness is that vague terminology allows for a relatively continuous range of interpretations, where as ambiguous terminology allows for multiple discrete interpretations. A vague expression creates a blur of meaning where as ambiguous expression mixes up otherwise clear meanings. Definitions and their purposes Definition is a......

...INTRODUCTION: GDP (Y) is the measure of the value of all final goods and services bought for their final use in an economy for a given time period. The model of the circular flow of income makes it apparent that, in a given time period, income equals amount of expenditure which in turn equals the value of output sold in the economy as a whole. Income = Expenditure = Output (Value Added) Therefore, there are three methods to measuring GDP. These are the Income, Expenditure and Output methods. The income method measures GDP by adding together the total of all factor incomes paid to households by firms for the use of resources. Incomes are divided into 5 categories: compensation of employees, interest for capital, rental income, profits for entrepreneurship and proprietor’s income. Seeing as incomes are calculated at factor cost rather than market price, further adjustments must be made to calculate GDP. Indirect business taxes and depreciation incurred must be added and subsidies subtracted. Y = Income + Depreciation + Indirect Business Taxes + Net Income - Subsidies The expenditure method measures GDP by adding together all expenditures on all final goods and services made by all sectors of the economy. Expenditure is divided into 4 categories: Consumption Expenditure (C), Investment (I), Government Purchases of goods and services (G) and Net Exports (Exports – Imports) (NX). Y = C + I + G + NX The output method measures GDP by adding together the...

Definition of Feminist Theory

...Sanja Knezevic English 400 Dr. Robert Budde October 8th, 2009 The Definition of Feminist Theory The question of femininity and womanhood in literature has been a large topic for discussion and debate throughout history. Feminism is a body of social theory that tends to be provoked by the beliefs and experiences of women, some who feel that they have been misrepresented by the male gender. Feminist theory moreover tends to center on gender politics such as sexual objectification, stereotyping and female coercion and aims to recognize the nature of gender inequality. There are a number of topics that are discussed within feminist theory such as; examining the representation of women in male and female literature, exploring whether there is a solely “female language” and whether is available to men and questioning whether men and women are biologically different or “socially constructed” as different. Another large topic of discussion within feminist theory is the question of “What is a Woman?” Although the question may seem simple enough, it has brought forth many different literary works that have answered that question in a number of ways. A specific work that comes to mind when contemplating this question is The Second Sex written by Simone de Beauvoir. She wrote this book in an attempt to write about herself, and beginning with the fact that she is a woman, she then felt it necessary to define what a woman was, which then became the intent of......

...GDP Research Paper The definition of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) defines aggregate output as the dollar value of all final goods and services produced within the borders of a country during a specific period of time, typically a year, while the real GDP is the GDP that has been deflated or inflated to reflect changes in the price level (McConnell, C. (2011). Macroeconomics [VitalSouce bookshelf version]. Retrieved from http://online.vitalsource.com/books/1259174522/epubcfi/6/52). According to BEA, the growth of real GDP decreased one percent in the first quarter of 2014, in the fourth quarter of 2013, the growth of real GDP increased two point six percent (News Release: Gross Domestic Product. (n.d.). News Release: Gross Domestic Product. Retrieved June 23, 2014, from http://www.bea.gov/newsreleases/national/gdp/gdpnewsrelease.htm). The trends in the growth of real GDP is very unstable. For example, in 2010, the GDP kept growing, but the extent seemed to become lower; The first quarter of 2011 was negative, but then the growth in real GDP became positive; In 2012, the growth in real GDP was always positive, merely the fourth quarter’s growth was hardly to be aware; 2013 was a very successful year, the growth in GDP was significant; Unfortunately, the first quarter in 2014 was negative. Things are little different in the corporate profits, it seemed that the profit in the first quarter of every year would always be negative. Corporate profits declined almost ten......

Relationship Between Metaparadigm Theory of Nursing and Ana's Definition of Nursing

...Relationship between ANA’s definition of nursing and the metaparadigm theories of nursing Metaparadigm is defined as the global concepts that identify the phenomenon of central interest to a discipline( Fawcett 2005). Nursing focuses and revolves around the concepts of person, health and environment and nursing practice and these are called the metaparadigm theories of nursing. American Nurses Association (2012) defines nursing as “the protection, promotion and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the nursing diagnosis and treatment of human response; and advocacy in the care individual, families, communities and population. In an attempt to see how ANA’s definition of nursing pertains to the metaparadigm theories of nursing, I will relate the definition to each theoretical concepts. The concept of Person was established in ANA’s definition as ….”individual, families, communinities and population”. These are the participants in nursing. They could be individual who needs nursing assistance, families that need referral or coping skills due to disruption in function, communities who need health promotion or a larger population experiencing the aftermath of a natural disaster. Each of these participants (persons) has specific nursing need which nursing provides or advocates for them to facilitate optimal health. ANA equally included the concept of environment in its nursing definition. It recognizes......

Microeconomic Principles - Definitions and Examples

...I. DEFINITIONS Net Profit Margin (NPM) NPM of a firm is simply the percentage of net income (NI) from total operating revenue (TOR). This indicates, after subtracting tax, how much profit the firm has generated. For example, if IKEA accumulates, over a single period, total sales revenue of $100M, but recapitalizes part of that income (about $50M), and needs to pay tax of 40% of the earnings, it will end up with a free cash flow of $30M. NPM is simply $30M / $100M x 100%, which equals 30%. Capital Capital includes any long term assets that are invested into an organization for it to be able to run its operations, whether providing goods or services. For example, if there is a start-up pizza restaurant, it will require a capital investment, that is, the acquiring of assets such as the building where the pizza will be made and served, the equipment that will be used for the cooking of the pizza such as the oven, and any profit made that would be re-injected into the future development of the pizza restaurant. Learning Curve A learning curve in economics is a concept similar to that of marginal utility. It highlights how new economic notions are easily learned and applied, but the subsequent ideas are harder to achieve. Therefore, a graph that represents the progression of an idea will show a steep incline that decelerates into a plateau. This applies to both customer utility of a product and company skill development. For example, when Apple first released its......

Drama Theory Gcse Example

...QUESTION 1 01.) As an actor, the piece my group and I devised and performed was based on the issue of bystanders. The style of our piece was non-naturalistic and included devices such as freeze-frames. We chose to use freeze-frames to pinpoint key moments within the piece, highlighting the importance of these moments to our audience. Our piece was based on the ‘British bakeoff” in which one of our contestants cheated (me being the cheat) and somebody saw and nobody speaks up about it. The piece portrayed the importance of speaking up and not being a bystander. We also used lighting, for example a spotlight on the key moments to further highlight the important moments in the performance. The genre of out performance was Theatre in Education, and we performed it to a target audience of student’s aged 12-13, boys and girls. Therefore, we chose to set our piece in modern day as we thought it was easy for out target audience to relate to. The fact they could relate to the performance allowed them to be more involved which enhanced the performance overall. We showed this through our costume, wearing modern day clothing such as Juicy tracksuits and bright skater skirts. The performance stage was a thrust stage, creating a more intimate environment in which the whole audience was involved. 02.) When deciding how to perform our piece, we thought it would be effective to make it a comical performance as it would be beneficial as it would engage our audience whilst portraying a......

Social Theories and Examples

...characterized by a merged social system. This meaning that each social theory plays a role in how we as a society blend and effect on another. This social system acts as a control for behavior within the society and can be viewed as the balancing factor. These social theories can be used to explain some of the reasoning behind many local, state, and federal programs being offered. There have been a number of programs designed to exemplify the social structure theory. Social structure theories suggests that those who are less fortunate or come from lower social economic standings are more likely to commit more crimes or be involved in more criminal activity than those who are in more advanced economic positions. An example of the programs the are offered that exemplify social structure theories is the social security that the government offers for unemployment. Poverty itself is a large contributing factor to the high crime rates in these low income areas. Many people believe that unemployment benefits can be used as a way to keep people in poverty, as they have no reason to escape the cycle that receiving these benefits puts them in by which they would end up worse off if they took a job, than if they were to continue taking the hand outs that the government continues to give to them. The culture of poverty that gets passed down generationally only serves to exemplify the social structure theories further, as the emotionless, pessimism, and helplessness......

Comparisson of Masculinity and the Psychoanalytic Theories Using the Example of the Fight Club

...Comparisson of Masculinity and the Psychoanalytic theories using the example of the Fight Club. Introduction. Fight club is an interesting film to be reflected through psychoanalytic and masculinity theories. In this essay I will attempt to present the number of elements of narrative that can be explained by these theories. I intend to use citations from Marc A. Price's essay The Fight for Self: The Language of the Unconscious in Fight club regarding psychoanalytical concepts such as ego, super-ego and the id as well as Lynn M. Ta's dissertation Hurt So Good: Fight Club, Masculine Violence, and the Crisis of Capitalism (regarding masulinity in the film), as these works were the main sources of my research. Then I'll try to come to the conclusion on which of two theories have more strength at being applied to films (primarily Fight Club). Application of theories and analysis. The connection that we shall draw between psychoanalytic theory and the film Fight Club is simple and is this; the narrator is a representation of the ego, for Tyler Durden we can substitute the id. In the Freudian psychic model the ego is the civilized part of consciousness. The ego is that part of the psychic apparatus that is modified so that a being can interact safely with other beings and thus remain accepted within the social group. It is important for identity formation that the individual is accepted by the group (that is wider society) therefore, a controlled id......
