Test Your Knowledge of Gross Domestic Product, in Comic Form...

By January 21, 2013

Follow me on:

Economists often use Gross Domestic Product as the measure of the size of an economy as well as to measure economic health, growth, etc. While useful in general, it's not always a perfect measure of economic well being, and this comic helps to explain why.

Does the situation in the cartoon actually count in GDP? At the very least, it's a helpful thought exercise to test your understanding.

I’m curious to find out what blog platform you’re working with?

I’m having some minor security issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any solutions?
