National income. final

  1. 1.  Marshall‟s definition of National Income. ◦ “The labor and capital of a country acting on its natural resources produce annually a certain net aggregate of commodities, material and immaterial including services of all kinds…. This is true net annual income or revenue of the country or national dividend.” Defects of this definition:  Multiple goods and services  Fear of Double Counting  Many of produced commodities are not marketed and are kept as self consumption 2
  2. 2.  Pigou‟s definition of National Income.  “National income is that part of objective income of community, including of course income derived from abroad which can be measured in money.” Defects of this definition:  There is no difference in the fundamental forms of goods which can and can not be exchanged for money.  This definition is applicable only to developed countries where every good and service is purchased for money from the market. So it is not applicable to backward and underdeveloped countries. 3
  3. 3.  Fisher‟s Point of view: earlier two definitions are based on production concept. But this definition is based on „consumption concept. “The national income or dividend consists solely of services as received by ultimate consumers, whether from their martial or from their human environment.‟ this definition provides an adequate concept of economic welfare which is dependent on consumption and consumption represent our standard of living. Defects of this point of view. ◦ Difficult to calculate money value of net consumption. ◦ Difficult in case of durable good. ◦ In case of Exchange of second hand goods. 4

  7. 7.  GDP at market price=C+I+G+(X-M) GDP at factor cost=sum of value added GDP at factor cost = wage+rent+interest+gross profits+depreciation GDP at factor cost + indirect business taxes –subsidies = GDP at market price 8
  8. 8.  GNP is the total measure of flow of goods and services at market value resulting from current production during a year in a country including net income from abroad. So, it includes ◦ Consumers‟ goods and services to satisfy the immediate wants of the people. ◦ Gross private domestic investment in capital goods. ◦ Goods and Services Produced by government. ◦ Net exports of goods and services. ◦ So GNP = GDP at Market Price + Net Factor Income from Abroad 9
  9. 9.  Index of current year to a base year Market Price of only final product should be taken into account to avoid double counting Goods and services rendered free of charges are not included Sale/Purchase of old goods, shares, bonds, existing assets should not be considered Profit/Loss on account of change in price of capital asset should not be considered Income from illegal activities should not be considered 10

  14. 14.  Under what situation when GDP is greater than GNP? Income earned by non-residents locally is greater than income earned by residents abroad Net Income from abroad is negative 15
  15. 15.  GDP / population size If we compare HK’s GDP with China’s GDP, which one is larger? If we compare HK’s per capita GDP with China’s GDP, which one is larger? 16
