  • 2. Economic Growth v/s Development Economic Growth is supposed to be a natural or normal process requiring no special efforts on the part of the community. Economic Development involves certain structural changes without which the inertia of the social system cannot be overcome and a decisive break with the past achieved.

Economic growth can be measured in nominal terms, which include inflation, or in real terms, which are adjusted for inflation. Economic growth can be defined as increase in a countrys productive capacity as measured by comparing gross national product (GNP) in a year with the GNP in the previous year.

Prod. @ constant prices= Agg. Prod. @ current prices x 100 Price index of current period
