Thus, any sensible measure would indicate that the real GDP was higher in case b than in case a. Thus, the equality of the nominal GDPs is misleading. Identical figures 3 on nominal GDP can conceal very different underlying differences in levels of production. Economists solve the problem of changing price levels by constructing measures of real GDP. Until recently, the most common way to compute real GDP was to multiply each year’s quantity of output of each good by the price of the good in a base year, such as 2000.

The values of real GDP per person in 2000 give us a snapshot of standards of living at a point in time. The reason that the rich countries, such as the OECD members, got to be rich in 2000 is that their level of real GDP per person rose for a long period. Similarly, the poor countries in 2000—especially in sub-Saharan Africa—did not grow. 8 The original definitions for the mid 1980s were $2 per day for poverty and $1 per day for extreme poverty. The annual values for 2000 adjust the original numbers for changes in price levels.

To see this, we take up each approach in turn, beginning with the breakdown by type of expenditure.
