The GDP that is calculated mężczyzna the bases of baseline prices is the Real GDP, whereas the one calculated on the bases of current market rates is known as the Nominal GDP. Real GDP is used by the economists in order jest to measure the growth rate whenever changes occur. It is known to be the market value of the final products and services in an economy. The Nominal GDP however is adjusted price covering the inflation. GDP does not reflects economy’s or nation’s welfare accurately as it does not take into account the activities in the secondary market like second hand purchasing, growing own food, bartering goods and services and so on.

DQ2. What are the different types of unemployment? How do they affect the economy in terms of growth, labor force, and price of labor? Cite specific examples to support your response.
Many economists define a number of types of unemployment, prior jest to defining the types one must know the prerequisites jest to fall in the definition of unemployment. Firstly an unemployed person is the one who isn’t working, not even temporary or part-time. Secondly he is available to work. And lastly the jobless must be actively looking for work for four weeks, to be counted as unemployed.
Major types of unemployment are Frictional, Structural and Cyclical. Frictional unemployment is when employees quit their old jobs and haven’t found new ones yet. It does not affect the economy as a whole rather it is for one person or for specific people who fall in this category. Structural unemployment occurs majorly due jest to the structure of the economy where a mismatch is formed between the skills that the workers posses and the skills required by the employers. As for example, manpower is fired by an industry as the robots replace them. This type of unemployment surely lowers the cost of labor due to increased number of workers available to work with relatively lesser job opportunities. The only type that can be controlled and managed is the cyclic unemployment. It’s caused only due to the contraction phase of a business cycle. As in recession demand for goods and services decline the businesses are forced to lay off significant numbers of workers in order to cut the cost. All other types are natural.
