First major limitation in using GDP as a measure of well-being is a natural disaster like a tornado, as property damage would trigger work and services to fix the damages thriving on the need and demand for those goods and services however it comes with at a loss of money for the property owners as they have to spend money to replace their loss wealth, where otherwise they would have to give up buying the things they wanted. Second major limitation in using GDP as a measure of well-being is the changes in working hours as GDP does not measure or accounts for people working less to perhaps spend more time with family rather than work they might want to work four days a week affecting the GDP as the employee labor decreases due to the change on his priorities by working less. Lastly the third major limitation in using GDP as a measure of well-being is the non-market production as is very difficult to calculate, for instances the sale of illegal drugs, so this people are contributing to the economy and producing but are not being tracked or accounted by the GDP, thus devaluating the living standards (Miller,
Four Components of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) A measurement universally used for tracking a countries overall productivity called the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The GDP encompasses four different components called consumption, investment, government purchases and net export. Consumption the first part of the GDP focuses on the purchasing of good or services by citizens. Investments the second part of the GDP centers on the purchasing of goods for companies to improve future production. Government purchases the third part of the GDP covers the government expenditures on goods or services.
With higher real GDP a society can devote more resources to promoting recycling and the use of renewable resources Investment. Economic growth encourages investment and therefore encourages a virtuous cycle of economic growth.

Introduction The accompanying paper analyzes the contentions and the key thoughts expressed in an article by Robert Costanza and Ida Costanza ' time to leave the GDP behind ‘.283-285 [ 2014]. It will further center around the issues with numerous nations with generally high GDP development yet poor societal condition India being in the spotlight being a perfect example. This raises attention the global concern that Is GDP growth the most important thing for the countries? or is there any life beyond GDP? GDP is a misleading measure of national achievement.
In addition, it allows some workers an inroad to career paths via bootstrapping of new skills that may not have been available before. Also, GIG serve as a useful channel for supplementary income or acts as a financial lifeline for some workers. In totality, Mckinsey reported that this accounts for 90 million in the US and EU-15. Nonetheless, the GIG economy does present some drawbacks across several dimensions. Firstly, independent workers have limited access to benefits and employment rights.
The elements for GDP are as follows, the market value is the prices of goods which often are affected by supply and demand. The final goods and services is where the product are now reaching the consumer who exchanges money for it. Produced goods are made within this year are counted towards this year’s GDP. Borders of a country is the production of all the goods be counted “within the boundaries” of a country. It isn’t particular to local consumption only.
• These all factors are affected by high inequality. • High inequality also reduces people accessibility towards resources even it threatens the political condition of the economy, discourages the behavior of people towards individuals or enterprises and this become the hinder towards economic growth. • If we talk about countries which have high growth but low living standard then I will prefer countries like India and China in both the countries there growth rate is rising but there standard of living is not that much high. • GNP is the value of product and services by a labor and property which is supplied by the people of that country and it is calculated in one year but it is not considered the way on which the wealth is distributed .in case of underdeveloped countries only one percent of the population is maybe controlling 80 percent wealth. • Economy may be expand and by this GNP increase at high rate but the people may not experience any of the change or rise in their living
Even this positive effect, however, is somewhat of an illusion because GDP typically does not account for all the economic losses from the disaster, notably loss of capital. I feel that these disasters could either affect the economy positively or
Over the past decades, academics and practioners have generally come to agree that on average, value investing exhibits superior returns than growth investing (Chan and Lakonishok, 2004). Consistent with the Efficient Market Hypothesis, the explanation of this phenomenon given by Fama and French (1992) is that value stocks are fundamentally riskier, hence value investors earn higher returns as a compensation for bearing this extra risk, as risk and return are intimately related. However, as outlined in the excerpt of his book, Montier (2009) forcefully disagrees with this statement and attempts to disprove it. In this regard, this essay will examine whether value stocks carry more risk than growth stocks and analyse the reasons behind the former’s
DISCUSSION GDP is usually used as a key parameter to account for a country’s economic growth. It is fundamentally the broadest quantitative measure of a country’s economic activity, it is the monetary value of all goods and services produced within a nation’s geographic borders over a specific period of time. GDP is a measure where a country stands economically with reference to other nations and its economic condition. Three approaches can be used to identify the GDP; • Income approach, • Expenditure approach and • Production approach These approaches help in understanding that how much the economy is growing or how rapidly it is deteriorating. The basic factors that affect the GDP are discussed as follows: PERSONAL CONSUMPTION Personal
