Börsenlexikon: Gross national product

Gross national income (GNI), also known as gross national product (GNP) or gross national income (GNI) until 1999, is a central concept in national accounts. It measures the value of all goods and services produced in a period with the help of production factors owned by residents (i.e. persons living in the country or area under consideration). This is equivalent to the income flowing to residents from employment and asset ownership (interest and other investment income, but not income from sales transactions), which is why gross national income is regarded as the central income indicator of an economy.
