Terms and Definitions

GDP is the total monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders over a specific period, usually a year. It serves as a comprehensive indicator of a nation's overall economic health, reflecting the size and strength of its economy.

Nominal GDP is the GDP figure that has not been adjusted for inflation, reflecting the current market prices of goods and services. This measure does not consider the effects of price changes and can, therefore, provide an overestimated economic value in periods of high inflation.

Real GDP is a macroeconomic measure of economic output that adjusts for price changes i.e., inflation or deflation. In contrast to nominal GDP, real GDP provides a more accurate assessment of economic growth, as it factors in price changes, allowing comparisons across different time periods.

GNP is the total market value of all final goods and services produced by residents of a country, regardless of whether they are located within the country or overseas. It includes income earned by citizens and businesses abroad but excludes income generated within the country's borders by non-resident entities.

GDP per capita is a measure that breaks down a country's GDP by its total population, resulting in a per-person value. It is often considered an indicator of a country's standard of living or economic wellbeing of its inhabitants, although it does not account for income disparities within the population.

PPP is an economic theory that compares different countries' currencies through a market "basket of goods" approach. It factors in the relative cost of living and inflation rates, offering a more nuanced view of a country's economic position in comparison to others based on what a typical basket of goods would cost.

An exchange rate is the value of one country's currency in terms of another country's currency. It affects the relative prices of goods and services between two countries and thus impacts bilateral trade, investments, inflation, and the valuation of assets denominated in different currencies.

Economic growth is the increase or growth in a nation's production of goods and services, usually measured by the rise in real GDP over time. It is considered a positive development as it often leads to higher employment rates, increased wealth, and improved living standards.

Inflation is the rate at which the general level of prices for goods and services is rising and subsequently, purchasing power is falling. It is usually measured as an annual percentage increase in the consumer price index (CPI) and can affect everything from interest rates to government policies.
