Unit 4

Hello Everyone,
The major components of the USA GDP is consumption, investment, government purchases, and net exports. According to (Mankiw, 2015)
  consumption is the amount households spend on good and services such as the everyday essentials, household necessities and landscaping. Investments are goods purchased to use at a later time to produce more goods and services such as buying equipment for your business to allow the production of goods or to provide services. Government purchases are spending  on goods and services by local, state, and federal governments such as salaries of government employees and public works.Net exports are spending on domestically produced goods by other countries by buying goods from other countries to sell in this country. 

The difference between the real GDP and the nominal GDP is the way it is calculated. Real GDP is calculated using constant price values of the production of goods and services and the nominal GDP uses the current price values to calculate the production of goods and services.The real GDP shows how the business cycle is doing. If the Real GDP is high the market is doing well if it is low then the markets will not be doing well.
