MARKET VALUE

 “GDP is the market value…”
 GDP adds together many different kinds of products into a single measure of the
value of economic activity. To do this it uses market prices.
 thus, if the price of a strawberry is twice the price of a blueberry, then the
strawberry contributes twice as much to GDP as to a blueberry.

 “Of all…”
 GDP tries to be comprehensive. It includes all items produced in the economy
and sold legally in the markets.
 It doesn’t only measure the value of berries but also, pears, oranges, mangoes,
health care, and so on.
 There are some products that GDP excludes because measuring them is so
difficult. GDP excludes most items that are produced and consumed at home.

 “Final…”
 GDP only includes the value of the final good because the value of the
intermediate good is already included in the prices of the final goods.
 An exception to this principle is when an intermediate good is produced and
added to a firm’s inventory of goods to be sold or used at a later date.

 “Goods and services…”
 GDP includes both tangible and intangible services.

 “Produced…”
 GDP includes goods and services currently produced.
 It does not include transactions involving items produced in the past.
