3 After studying this chapter you will be able to Define GDP and explain why GDP equals aggregate expenditure and aggregate income Explain how Statistics Canada measures GDP and real GDP Describe how real GDP is used and explain its limitations as a measure of economic well-being
4 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) GDP Defined GDP or gross domestic product is the market value of all final goods and services produced in a country in a given time period. This definition has four parts: Market value Final goods and services Produced within a country In a given time period
5 Gross Domestic Product Market Value GDP is a market value goods and services are valued at their market prices To add apples and oranges, computers and popcorn, we add the market values so we have a total value of output in dollars.
6 Gross Domestic Product Final Goods and Services GDP is the value of the final goods and services produced. A final good (or service) is an item bought by its final user during a specified time period. A final good contrasts with an intermediate good, which is an item that is produced by one firm, bought by another firm, and used as a component of a final good or service. Excluding the value of intermediate goods and services avoids counting the same value more than once.
7 Gross Domestic Product Produced Within a Country GDP measures production within a country domestic production. In a Given Time Period GDP measures production during a specific time period, normally a year or a quarter of a year.
8 Gross Domestic Product GDP and the Circular Flow of Expenditure and Income GDP measures the value of production, which also equals total expenditure on final goods and total income. The equality of income and value of production shows the link between productivity and living standards. The circular flow diagram in Figure 20.1 illustrates the equality of income and expenditure.
9 Gross Domestic Product Y = C + I + G + X M
10 Gross Domestic Product The circular flow shows two ways of measuring GDP. GDP Equals Expenditure Equals Income Total expenditure on final goods and services equals GDP. GDP = C + I + G + X M. Aggregate income equals the total amount paid for the use of factors of production: wages, interest, rent, and profit. Firms pay out all their receipts from the sale of final goods, so income equals expenditure, Y = C + I + G + (X M).
11 Gross Domestic Product Why Is Domestic Product Gross? Gross means before deducting the depreciation of capital. The opposite of gross is net. Net means after deducting the depreciation of capital.
12 Gross Domestic Product Depreciation is the decrease in the value of a firm s capital that results from wear and tear and obsolescence. Gross investment is the total amount spent on purchases of new capital and on replacing depreciated capital. Net investment is the increase in the value of the firm s capital. Net investment = Gross investment Depreciation.
13 Measuring Canadian GDP The Bureau of Economic Analysis uses two approaches to measure GDP: The expenditure approach The income approach
14 Measuring Canadian GDP The Expenditure Approach The expenditure approach measures GDP as the sum of the red flow: consumption expenditure, investment, government expenditure on goods and services, and net exports. GDP = C + I + G + (X M)
16 Measuring Canadian GDP The Income Approach The income approach measures GDP by summing the incomes that firms pay households for the factors of production they hire. Two broad categories are 1. Wages, salaries, and other labour income 2. Other factor incomes
17 Measuring Canadian GDP The payment for labour services is the sum of net wages plus benefits such as pension contributions and is shown by the blue flow W. Other factor incomes include a mixture of interest, rent, and profit and include some labour income from selfemployment. They are included in the blue flow OFI.
18 Measuring Canadian GDP The sum of all factor incomes is net domestic income at factor cost. Two adjustments must be made to get GDP: 1. Indirect taxes less subsidies are added to get from factor cost to market prices. 2. Depreciation is added to get from net domestic income to gross domestic income. Table 20.2 on the next slide shows the income approach with data for 2010.
20 Measuring Canadian GDP Nominal GDP and Real GDP Real GDP is the value of final goods and services produced in a given year when valued at valued at the prices of a reference base year. Currently, the reference base year is 2002 and we describe real GDP as measured in 2002 dollars. Nominal GDP is the value of goods and services produced during a given year valued at the prices that prevailed in that same year. Nominal GDP is just a more precise name for GDP.
21 Measuring Canadian GDP Calculating Real GDP Table 20.3(a) shows the quantities produced and the prices in 2002 (the base year). Nominal GDP in 2002 is $100 million. Because 2002 is the base year, real GDP and nominal GDP both are $100 million.
22 Measuring Canadian GDP Table 20.3(b) shows the quantities produced and the prices in Nominal GDP in 2012 is $300 million. Nominal GDP in 2012 is three times its value in 2002.
23 Measuring Canadian GDP In Table 20.3(c), we calculate real GDP in The quantities are those of 2012, as in part (b). The prices are those in the base year (2002) as in part (a). The sum of these expenditures is real GDP in 2012, which is $160 million.
24 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Economists use estimates of real GDP for two main purposes: To compare the standard of living over time To compare the standard of living across countries
25 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP The Standard of Living Over Time Real GDP per person is real GDP divided by the population. Real GDP per person tells us the value of goods and services that the average person can enjoy. By using real GDP, we remove any influence that rising prices and a rising cost of living might have had on our comparison.
26 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Long-Term Trend A handy way of comparing real GDP per person over time is to express it as a ratio of some reference year. For example, in 1969, real GDP per person was $19,000 and in 2010, it was $38,000. So real GDP per person in 2010 was double its 1969 level that is, $38,000 $19,000 = 2.
27 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Two features of our expanding living standard are The growth of potential GDP per person Fluctuations of real GDP around potential GDP The value of real GDP when all the economy s labour, capital, land, and entrepreneurial ability are fully employed is called potential GDP.
28 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Figure 20.2 shows Canadian real GDP per person. Potential GDP grows at a steady pace because the quantities of the factors of production and their productivity grow at a steady pace. Real GDP fluctuates around potential GDP.
29 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Real GDP per person in Canada: Doubled between 1969 and 2010.
30 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Productivity Growth Slowdown The growth rate of real GDP per person slowed after How costly was that slowdown? The answer is provided by a number that we ll call the Lucas wedge. Lucas wedge is the dollar value of the accumulated gap between what real GDP per person would have been if the 1960s growth rate had persisted and what real GDP per person turned out to be.
31 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Figure 20.3 illustrates the Lucas wedge. The red line is actual real GDP per person. The thin black line is the trend that real GDP per person would have followed if the 1960s growth rate of potential GDP had persisted. The shaded area is the Lucas wedge.
32 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Real GDP Fluctuations The Business Cycle A business cycle is a periodic but irregular up-and-down movement of total production and other measures of economic activity. Every cycle has two phases: 1. Expansion 2. Recession and two turning points: 1. Peak 2. Trough
33 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Figure 20.4 illustrates the business cycle. An expansion is a period during which real GDP increases from a trough to a peak. Recession is a period during which real GDP decreases its growth rate is negative for at least two successive quarters.
34 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP The Standard of Living Across Countries Two problems arise in using real GDP to compare living standards across countries: 1. The real GDP of one country must be converted into the same currency units as the real GDP of the other country. 2. The goods and services in both countries must be valued at the same prices.
35 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Figure 20.5 illustrates the problem. Using the market exchange rate and domestic prices leads to an estimate that China is very poor. Real GDP per person in China is 5 percent of U.S. real GDP per person in 2010.
36 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Using purchasing power parity prices China s real GDP per person is 6.5 percent of U.S. real GDP per person in 2010.
37 The Uses and Limitations of Real GDP Limitations of Real GDP Real GDP measures the value of goods and services that are bought in markets. Some of the factors that influence the standard of living and that are not part of GDP are Household production Underground economic activity Health and life expectancy Leisure time Environmental quality Political freedom and social justice
38 Mathematical Note: Chained-Dollar Real GDP Statistics Canada uses a measure of real GDP called chained-dollar real GDP. Three steps are needed to calculate this measure: Value production in the prices of adjacent years Find the average of two percentage changes Link (chain) to the reference year
39 Mathematical Note: Chained-Dollar Real GDP Value Production in Prices of Adjacent Years Part (a) shows the quantities and prices in Part (b) shows the quantities and prices in Part (c) the quantities of 2012 valued at 2011 prices. Part (d) the quantities of 2011 valued at prices of 2012.
40 Mathematical Note: Chained-Dollar Real GDP Parts (a) and (c) value the quantities of both years at 2011 prices. That is, in 2011 prices, real GDP increased from $145 million to $160 million.
41 Mathematical Note: Chained-Dollar Real GDP Parts (d) and (b) value the quantities in both years at 2012 prices. That is, in 2012 prices, real GDP increased from $275 million to $300 million.
42 Mathematical Note: Chained-Dollar Real GDP Find the Average of Two Percentage Changes Part (a) shows that at 2011 prices, production increased by 10.3 percent. Part (b) shows that at 2012 prices, production increased by 9.1 percent. The average percentage increase in production is 9.7.
43 Mathematical Note: Chained-Dollar Real GDP Link (Chain) to the Base Year To find real GDP in 2012 in base-year prices (2002), we need to know the 1. Real GDP in Average growth rate each year from 2002 to 2012.
44 Mathematical Note: Chained-Dollar Real GDP Starting with real GDP in 2002 of $100 million and the growth rates shown in the figure, real GDP in each year since 2002 is calculated as follows: Real GDP in 2003 is 7 percent higher than the $100 million in 2002, which is $107 million. The figure illustrates the linking back to the base year.
