  • GDP as the sum in money for all goods and services produced by business entities, plus taxes, minus subsidies on production of certain goods and services.
  • GDP as the amount of funds spent on consumption of goods and services produced, plus export, minus import of goods and services.
  • GDP as the amount of the revenue the economy as a whole (i. e. salaries, taxes, balance profit of businesses, etc.)

The index has a significant impact on the market.
