EXPECTED QUESTIONS

What are the two types of taxes?
a) Direct Taxes: Income Tax, Interest Tax, Wealth Tax
b) Indirect Taxes: Customs duties, Excise duties, Sales Tax, GST

Real GDP: (Nominal GDP/GDP Deflator)*100

IMPORTANT ABBREVIATIONS

GDP = GNP - NFIA
GNP = GDP + Net Factor Income from Abroad (NFIA)
NDP = GDP - Total Capital Depreciation
NNP = GNP - Total Capital Depreciation
PI = National Income- Social Security Contributions – Corporate Income Taxes – Undistributed Corporate Profits + Transfer Payments
Disposable Income = Personal Income – Personal Taxes
Average Total Cost (ATC) = Total Cost / Q (Output is quantity produced or ‘Q’)
Average Variable Cost (AVC) = Total Variable Cost / Q
Average Fixed Cost (AFC) = ATC – AVC
Total Cost (TC) = (AVC + AFC) X Output (Which is Q)
Total Variable Cost (TVC) = AVC X Output
Total Fixed Cost (TFC) = TC – TVC
Marginal Cost (MC) = Change in Total Costs / Change in Output
Marginal Product (MP) = Change in Total Product / Change in Variable Factor
Marginal Revenue (MR) = Change in Total Revenue / Change in Q
Total Revenue (TR) = Price X Quantity
Average Revenue (AR) = TR / Output
Total Product (TP) = Average Product X Variable Factor
Economic Profit = TR – TC > 0
A Loss = TR – TC < 0
