Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. 109) In the term ʺreal GDP,ʺ what does ʺGDPʺ stand for and what does it measure? What does ʺrealʺ indicate? 109) Answer: GDP stands for gross domestic product and measures the value of the total production of final goods and services. ʺRealʺ indicates that the goods and services produced are valued using the prices of the base year, not the current year, and therefore are adjusted for inflation.

If dollars, the value of the dollar from what period? Is real GDP measured in terms of quantity or in terms of dollars? If dollars, the value of the dollar from what period? 110) Answer: Both nominal GDP and real GDP are measured in terms of dollars. Nominal GDP is measured using the value of the dollar for that specific year, and real GDP is measured using the value of the dollar for the base year.

During a deflationary period, which would be higher: nominal GDP or real GDP? Why? Assume that the base year of choice is prior to the deflationary period. Answer: Real GDP would be higher, as long as the base year was before the period of deflation. Nominal GDP would be measured using the lower prices that resulted from the deflation. Real GDP would use the higher prices before the deflation, assuming the base year was before the deflation.

Do you agree or disagree? Why? 112) Answer: Disagree. It depends on whether the year being examined is before or after the base year. If after the base year, then nominal GDP will always exceed real GDP if inflation has occurred. If before the base year, then nominal GDP will always be less than real GDP if inflation has occurred. If the year being examined is before the base year and inflation has occurred, then the base year prices will exceed the prices of that year.

Consider the following data for a simple economy: Calculate nominal GDP and real GDP for 2011, using 2009 as the base year. Show your work. 113) Answer: Nominal GDP for 2011 equals (250 × \$21) + (2,300 × \$2) + (50 × \$140) = \$16,850. Real GDP for 2011 equals (250 × \$20) + (2,300 × \$1) + (50 × \$200) = \$17,300.

Consider the data above for a simple economy: Using 2005 as the base year, calculate nominal GDP, real GDP, and the GDP deflator for 2011. Show your work. Answer: Nominal GDP for 2011 equals (50 × \$150) + (2,300 × \$2.40) + (350 × \$55) = \$32,270. Real GDP for 2011 equals (50 × \$250) + (2,300 × \$2.00) + (350 × \$50) =\$34,600. \$32,270 × 100 = 93.3 The GDP deflator equals \$34,600 Diff: 3 Page Ref: 628-629/222-223 Topic: Real GDP versus Nominal GDP Learning Outcome: Macro 3: Identify and interpret key macroeconomic measures AACSB: Analytic Skills 28 114) ...
