Measures of Output
National-income accounting:
the measurement of aggregate
economic activity,
particularly national income and its
components.
These are Macroeconomic
measures.
Why are economists interested in
these measures? …
5
Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
Gross domestic product (GDP):
is the total dollar value of final output
produced within a nation’s borders in a
given time period.
LO1
6
Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
Each good and service produced and
brought to market has a price.
That price serves as a measure of
value for calculating total output.
LO1
7
GDP Versus GNP
GDP:
geographically focused,
includes all output produced within a
nation’s borders, …
regardless of whose factors of
production are used to produce it
(foreign or domestic).
LO1
8
GDP Versus GNP
GNP - Gross National Product :
the old standard of measure,
refers to output produced by Americanowned factors, regardless of location
GDP is the new standard of measure
since 1992.
say! - It’s over!
LO1
9
International Comparisons
The geographic focus of GDP facilitates
international comparisons of economic
activity.
LO1
10
GDP per Capita
REVIEW:
GDP per capita:
total GDP divided by total population
(average GDP).
commonly used as a measure of a
country’s standard of living.
11
World GDP per Capita
12
GDP per Capita
However:
Measures of per capita GDP tell us
nothing about the way GDP is actually
distributed or used,
It is only a statistical average.
13
Measurement Problems
The methods of calculating GDP
create several problems:
Non-market activities.
Unreported income.
Price fluctuations (real vs. nominal).
14
Non-Market Activities
15
Non-Market Activities
GDP measures exclude most goods
and services produced that are not
sold in the market.
This causes GDP to be understated.
Exclusion of non-market activities
causes problems when:
comparing living standards over time,
or between countries.
LO1
16
Unreported Income
17
Unreported Income
The GDP statistics fail to capture
market activities that are not reported
to tax or census authorities.
The underground economy is
motivated by tax avoidance or to
conceal illegal activities.
LO1
18
19
The production of most goods and
services involves a series of stages.
To accurately measure GDP we must
distinguish between two types of
goods:
intermediate goods, and…
final goods.
This avoids what in the accounting
field is known as “double counting.”

Intermediate goods:
goods or services purchased for use as
inputs in the production of final goods
or services.
the increase in the market value of a
product that takes place at each stage
of the production process.
LO1
22
Two Ways to Calculate GDP
1. Compute the value of the final
output.
2. Count only the value added at each
stage of production.

Real Versus Nominal GDP
25
Computing Real GDP
Inflation:
the increase in the average level of
prices of goods and services.
Inflation distorts comparisons of GDP
over time.
Nominal vs. Real GDP accounting for inflation.
26
Computing Real GDP
A base period is picked to be the time
period used for comparative analysis.
It is the basis for the indexing of price
changes.
28
Computing Real GDP

Computing Real GDP
The general formula for computing
real GDP is:
nominal GDP in year t
Real GDP in year t =
price index

Chain-Weighted Price

moving average of price levels in
consecutive years as an inflation

Net Domestic Product (NDP)
We can’t produce as much
output next year unless…
… we replace the
capital we use-up this
year.
Depreciation:
- the consumption of capital in the
production process.

Net Domestic Product (NDP)
Net Domestic Product is what we’ve
produced (GDP), minus the capital
we’ve worn out (depreciation).
NDP = GDP – depreciation
The amount of output we (C+G) could
consume without reducing our stock of
capital.

Gross vs. Net Investment
Investment:

Gross vs. Net Investment
The difference between GDP and NDP is
mirrored by the difference between gross
investment and net investment:
Gross investment:
- total investment expenditure in a
given time period.
Net investment:
= gross investment – depreciation

2. The Uses
of Output
( Re: C+I+G+(X-M) )
48
The Uses of Output
The 4 major uses of total output
parallel the four sets of market
participants:
Households – consumption (C) = 70%
Business Firms – investment (I) = 17%
Government – gov’t spending (G) = 20%
Foreigners - net exports (X-M) = –7%

3. Measures of
Income.
55
Measures of Income
GDP accounts have two sides.
Expenditures – the demand side.
Income – the supply side.
LO2
56
Measures of Income
Income = Output
…so…
Income = GDP
By charting the flow of income
through the economy, we see FOR
WHOM our output is produced.

Measures of Income
Economists break down the nation’s
production into various measures of income:
GDP
NDP
NI
PI
DI
C
S
gross domestic product
net domestic product
national income
personal income
disposable income
consumption
savings
And don’t forget:
Net investment = gross investment - depreciation
LO2
61
Depreciation & Net Domestic Product
NDP = GDP – depreciation
LO3
63
National Income (NI)
National income (NI):
total income earned by current, domesticallyowned factors of production.
Wages, interest, and profits paid to foreigners are
not part of U.S. income.
They need to be subtracted from the income flow.
Incomes earned by U.S. citizens in other nations
represents an inflow of income to U.S. households
This + & - is known as net foreign factor income.
LO3
64
National Income (NI)
Net foreign factor income =
+ Foreign wages earned by Americans
– American wages paid to foreigners
NI = NDP + net foreign factor
income
LO3
65
Personal Income (PI)
Personal income (PI):
before payment of personal taxes.
Personal income (PI) = National income (NI),
– indirect bus. taxes,
– corporate taxes,
– retained earnings,
– Social Security taxes,
+ transfer payments,
+ net interest.
LO3
66
Disposable Income
Disposable income (DI):
the after-tax income of households.
It is PI minus personal (income) taxes.
It’s what’s left at the end for you and I to
spend.
Disposable income = personal income
– personal taxes
LO3

Disposable Income
All disposable income is either:
consumed, or …
saved.
Saving:
disposable income less consumption;
(that part of disposable income not spent on
current consumption).
Disposable income = Consumption + Saving

GDP
What we’ve produced (income) in our
borders, in total.
NDP
What we’ve produced (income) after
accounting for the capital we’ve used
up.
NI
What we’ve produced (income) after
depreciation, regardless of national
boundary.
PI
The gross income of households before
their income is taxed.
DI
Household income after taxes – what
we have leftover to spend.

The Flow of Income
The dollar value of output will always
equal the dollar value of income.
LO2
77
The Flow of Income
Total income (GDP) ends up distributed in
the following way:
To households:
in the form of disposable income.
in the form of retained earnings and
depreciation allowances.
To government:
in the form of taxes.
LO2
78
Income and Expenditure
The flow of income that starts with
GDP ultimately returns to the market
in the form of:
new consumption (C),
investment (I), and …
government purchases (G).

Chapter Questions
1. The manuscript for this book was typed by
a friend. Had I hired a secretary to do the
same job, GDP would have been higher,
even though the amount of output would
have been identical. Why is this? Does
this make sense?
81
Chapter Questions
2. GDP I 1981 was \$2.96 trillion. It grew to
\$3.07 trillion in 1982, yet the quantity of
output actually decreased. How is this
possible?
82
Chapter Questions
3. If gross investment is not large enough to
replace the capital that depreciates in a
particular year, is net investment greater
or less than zero? What happens to our
production possibilities?
83
Chapter Questions
6. What jobs are likely part of the
underground economy?
7. How might the quality of life be adversely
affected by an increase in GDP?
