PAPER ECONOMY: Markets, exchanges, and assorted economic activity that deal with legal or paper claims on physical assets rather than the physical assets. The vast majority of activities for the paper economy take place through financial markets. The paper (or financial) economy is based legal claims on these physical goods and resources. The term paper economy is used because these legal claims historically have been pieces of paper--paper that you can't eat, wear, or live in to satisfy wants and needs. However, as technology progresses, much of the paper is giving way to electronic data storage.

Lesson 10: Gross Domestic Product | Unit 2: Looking Behind GDP Page: 12 of 25

Topic: Real GDP <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

GDP is the total MARKET VALUE of current economic production, that is, GDP measures current production at current market prices.
  • If we measure current economic production, current prices work fine. If we compare GDP from one year to the next year, current prices can be misleading.
  • For example... a 10% increase in GDP could result from changes in production, prices, or both. Production could be 10% higher will prices do not change. Or prices could 10% higher while production does not change. Or this could be a mix of changes in production and prices.
  • All we know is that GDP has risen by 10%, but it is difficult to know what has happened to physical production.
We need something more, we need real GDP.
