Question

- Suppose an economy’s real GDP is $30,000 in year 1 and $31,200 in year 2. What is the growth rate of its real GDP? Assume that population is 100 in year 1 and 102 in year 2. What is the growth rate of real GDP per capita?

Answer #1

The growth rate of real GDP=((RGDP in year 2 -RGDP in year 1)/RGDP in year 1)*100

the growth rate of its real GDP=((31200-30000)/30000)*100

=4%

the growth rate of its real GDP is 4%

--------------

Per capita real GDP =RGDP/Population

Per capita real GDP in year 1=30000/100=300

Per capita real GDP in year 2=31200/102=305.882353

The growth rate of per capita real GDP =((305.882353-300)/300)*100

=1.96078433

the growth rate of per capita real GDP is 1.96%

Suppose an economy’s real GDP is $30,000 in year 1 and $31,600
in year 2. What is the growth rate of its real GDP? Assume that
population was 100 in year 1 and 102 in year 2. What is the growth
rate of GDP per capita? (Show ALL of your

Formulas you could use:
Growth Rate in percentage = (Current year value – previous year
value)/ previous year
GDP per Capita = Real GDP/population (Ch6 Section 6.4)
Future value = Present value x (1 + growth rate)^number of
years (Ch7 Section 7.2)
Rule of 72:

What will happen to the annual rate of growth of per capita real
GDP if the annual rate of population growth increases and the
annual rate of growth of real GDP goes down?
A.
The effect will depend upon whether the rate of population
growth is greater than or less than the rate of growth of real
GDP.
B.
It will increase since the annual rate of growth of real GDP
does not influence the growth rate of per capita...

a) Real GDP per capita in Brainland in 2020 is $20,000. Due to
past investment in its education system and infrastructure,
Brainland has been experiencing a growth rate in real GDP per
capita of 7% per year. Assume real GDP per capita continues to grow
at 7% for the next 30 years. Use the rule of 70 to determine what
real GDP per capita would be in the year 2050.
