A) nGDP is $5 trillion in Yr 1 and $5.4 trillion one year later. What is the GDP growth rate?
B) If rGDP in Yr 1 was also $5 trillion what can you say about Yr1?
C) If rGDP grew 5% between Yr. 1 and Yr. 2 what did GDP prices do?
(Hint: use part A. If you know GDP growth with both output and prices and now you now output by itself, what must prices have done?).

The quality of goods is declining.
Production is accompanied by significant spillover costs.
The government produces valuable goods and services at a low cost.
The cost of living is lower in the country than is typical in the world.
Calculate the nominal GDP -
Nominal GDP = Consumption + Gross private investment + Government purchases + Net exports
Nominal GDP = $7,304 billion + $1,593 billion + $1,973 billion - $424 billion
Nominal GDP = $10,446 billion
The nominal GDP in 2002 was $10,446 billion.
Real GDP in 2002 = $9,439.9 billion
Nominal GDP in 2002 = $10,446 billion
Calculate the GDP deflator -
GDP deflator = (Nominal GDP/Real GDP) * 100 = ($10,446 billion/$9,439.9 billion) * 100 = 110.66
The GDP deflator is 110.66
