ECON 716 Macroeconomics for Finance Prof. Man-lui Lau 2 I. Introduction to Macroeconomics Definition : GNP (Gross National Product) of a country is the total market value of all the final goods and services produced by the resources owned by its citizen in one year. Definition : GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of a country is the total market value of all the final goods and services produced within its national boundary in one year. Definition : Per capita GNP GNP/Population and Per capita GDP GDP/Population. Example : apples $100 oranges $200 total GDP: $300 Example : apples $100 flour $80 apple juice $200 [need $40 of apples as inputs] apple pie $300 [need $30 of apples and $60 of flour as inputs] final goods: apples: $30 $100 $40 $30 flour: $20 $80 $60  apple juice: $200 apple pie: $300 total GDP: $550 Note : Although most goods and services are valued at their market prices when computing GDP, some are not sold in the market place (example: housing services and government services) and therefore do not have market prices. We use an estimate of their value, an imputed value, to be included in GDP. Remark : GNP (or GDP) the sum of the value added in every industry [value added output value input value] Example : apples $100 flour $80 apple juice $200 [need $40 of apples as inputs] apple pie $300 [need $30 of apples and $60 of flour as inputs] value added: apples: $100 flour: $80 apple juice $160 $200 $40 apple pie $210 $300 $30 $60 total GDP: $550
