What is GDP?

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is equal to total spending, plus the value of exports, minus the value of imports. Changes in GDP are often used as a measure of how the economy is performing. Essentially when the economy is doing well GDP should be growing.

Two key ways for a country to increase its GDP are to:

  • export more and
  • import less.
