  12. SOME MACROECONOMIC IDENTITIES - GDP Gross domestic product (GDP) is the monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in a specific time period within a country's borders Note that GDP talks only about the output accruing to production taking place within a country's borders i.e. the final produce of resident citizens as well as foreign nationals who reside within that geographical boundary is considered. How do we incorporate the incomes of millions of Indian citizens who are working abroad i.e. not working within India's borders? CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST


  13. SOME MACROECONOMIC IDENTITIES MARKET PRICES AND FIXED COSTS Note that all these variables (GDP, NDP, GNP, NNP) are evaluated at market prices This means that they are inclusive of indirect taxes such as custom duty, excise duty, sales tax etc. (impending GST) . Therefore in order to calculate NNP which is accrued to the factors of production i.e. NNP at Factor Prices (NNPFc) we must subtract indirect taxes from NNP at Market Prices (NNPMP) Similarly, there may be subsidies granted by the government on the prices of some commodities. So we need to add subsidies to the NNPMp to get NNPFC. . When we use the term "National Income" what we mean is NNPFc only (and not GDP). THEREFORE, NM-c= NATIONAL INCOME = NNPMP-INDIRECT TAXES + SUBSIDIES NNPMP-NET INDIRECT TAXES CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST

  15. Daylight Saving Time DST is the practice of setting the clocks forward 1 hour from standard time during the summer months, and back again in the fall, in order to make better use of natural daylight. ("Spring forward, fall back") It is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months so that evening daylight lasts longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times. US politician Benjamin Franklin first proposed the concept of DST in 1784, but modern DST was first suggested in 1895 when George Vernon Hudson, an entomologist from New Zealand, presented a proposal for a daylight saving shift The German Empire and Austria-Hungary organised the first nationwide implementation, starting on April 30, 1916. Many countries have used it at various times since then, particularly since the energy crisis of the 1970s. CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST


  16. Daylight Saving Time DST is generally not observed near the equator, where sunrise times do not vary enough to justify it. . Some countries observe it only in some regions; for example, southern Brazil observes it while equatorial Brazil does not. . Only a minority of the world's population uses DST, primarily because Asia and Africa generally do not observe it. DST clock shifts sometimes complicate timekeeping and can disrupt travel, billing, record keeping, medical devices, heavy equipment, and sleep patterns. Computer software often adjusts clocks automatically, but policy changes by various jurisdictions of DST dates and timings may be confusing CAyussh Sanghi's MCQ DIGEST
