Reply To: Changes in Calculation of U.S. GDP


Thanks tons for the fast and thorough reply! ^_^

Probably the impact will be to make the Debt-to-GDP ratio seem slightly smaller than it actually is, and, perhaps of more significance, make the government-spending-to-GDP ratio seem smaller than it was under the old measurement.

That and make international comparisons a matter of apples-to-oranges statistics, unless everyone else changes over to the “new, revised” method.
