Gross domestic product (GDP) refers to the market value of all officially recognized final goods and services produced within a country in a given period. GDP per capita is often considered an indicator of a country's standard of living.

How to calculate GDP?

A common equation for GDP calculation is: GDP = Consumption + Investment + Exports - Imports. Economists (since Keynes) have preferred to split the general consumption term into two parts: private consumption and public sector spending. Therefore, the standard GDP formula is expressed as GDP = Private Consumption + Government + Investment + Net Exports (or simply GDP = C + I + G + NX) where C is private consumption or consumer expenditure, I is business investments, G is government expenditure, NX is gross exports - gross imports. For calculation of GDP, net interest expenses in financial sector are added to GDP.

The GNI is similar to the gross national product (GNP), except that in measuring the GNP one does not deduct the indirect business taxes.

Net national income (NNI) is an economics term used in national income accounting. It can be defined as the net national product (NNP) minus indirect taxes. Net national income encompasses the income of households, businesses, and the government.

    NX = net exports (exports minus imports)
