PHENOMENON: An event or action that is subject to investigation using the scientific method. Phenomena are the sorts of things that science seeks to explain. While the term phenomenon might entice thoughts of UFOs, ghosts, and three-headed turtles, it really just means things that happen, both usual and unusual. The reason for explaining the unusual AND the commonplace is that the scientific method seeks to develop universal theories, with laws and principles that explain all events, not just unexpected ones.

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.

The expectations that sellers have concerning the future price of a good, which is assumed constant when a supply curve is constructed. If sellers expect a higher price, then supply decreases. If sellers expect a lower price, then supply increases. Sellers' expectations are one of five supply determinants that shift the supply curve when they change. The other four are resource prices, production technology, other prices, and number of sellers.
