Putting these all together: Compensation of employees + Gross Operating Surplus + Gross Mixed Income + Taxes less subsidies on products = GDP Economics 104 9 Key Concept: Circular Flow of Income The three di↵erent measures are all equal (in principle): Production = Expenditure = Income If something is produced (Production), somebody buys it (Expenditure), and the revenue from those sales are distributed as income (Income). Aside: Gross versus Net Investment Over time, physical capital depreciates. Gross investment includes new physical capital as well as the replacement of existing physical capital.

Economics 104 10 Nominal versus Real GDP Nominal GDP is the market value of final goods and services in a year measured using the prices for that year. (Called current prices.) Comparing Nominal GDP for di↵erent years will have both changes in volume as well as changes in prices. Real GDP controls for the di↵erences in prices so that we can isolate the volume e↵ect (the di↵erence in real economic activity ). Constant base year method : use prices from a base year to recalculate the value of GDP. Associated with real and nominal GDP is the GDP Deflator Real GDP = Nominal GDP ⇥ 100 GDP Deflator Chain Fisher Method — currently used by Statistics Canada. A variation of the constant price method.
