GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT AND NET DOMESTIC PRODUCT: Gross domestic product (GDP) is the total market value of all final goods and services produced within the political boundaries of an economy during a given period of time, usually a year. Net domestic product (NDP) is the total market value of all final goods and services produced within the political boundaries of an economy during a given period of time, usually a year, after adjusting for the depreciation of capital. The key difference between these two production measures is the phrase "after adjusting for the depreciation of capital." This phrase is officially termed capital consumption adjustment.

    Production

    • The first unit of this lesson, Short-Run Production, begins our study by introducing a few basic concepts underlying production, especially short run, long run, fixed input, and variable input.
    • In the second unit, Production Measures, we take a look the three standard measures of production -- total product, average product, and marginal product.
    • The third unit, Product Curves, then presents graphical relations for these three measures -- total product curve, average product curve, and marginal product curve.
    • In the fourth unit, Long-Run Production, we examine the role returns to scale play in long-run production.
    • The fifth and final unit, Supply, then closes this lesson by previewing the importance of production to the supply decisions by firms.s

    INFORMATION

    The transfer of knowledge from one person to another. Information is a flow concept. It requires someone (or something) to do the sending and someone to do the receiving. Information is a valuable commodity that provides benefits, but also incurs an opportunity cost to produce, meaning information is never perfect or complete. The existence of asymmetric information (some have more information than others) gives rise to the problems of adverse selection, moral hazard, and the principal-agent problem.

    [What's This?]

    Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at a crowded estate auction hoping to buy either a coffee cup commemorating last Friday (you know why) or a wall poster commemorating the first day of spring. Be on the lookout for small children selling products door-to-door.
