What GDP Says About the Economy Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella: How I Work 2 months ago   05:23

Wall Street Journal
Economists say the U.S. would be better off if the country's GDP rose at a 3% rate or more each year, rather than the 2% rate it has been growing at for a while. WSJ explains what GDP is, and why economists are so fixated on its growth. Illustration: Stephanie Swart/The Wall Street Journal

The word of God which the Supreme Pen
hath recorded on the third leaf of the Most
Exalted Paradise is this: O son of man!
If thine eyes be turned towards mercy,
forsake the things that profit thee and
cleave unto that which will profit mankind.
And if thine eyes be turned towards justice,
choose thou for thy neighbor that which
thou choosest for thyself. Humility exalteth
man to the heaven of glory and power,
whilst pride abaseth him to the depths of
wretchedness and degradation.

(Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah, pg. 64

The Wall Street Journal! Americans! I am authorized to publish a Russian ultimatum to America. The United States must return Russia back what they stole from Russia. For a start, these are 14 former Soviet republics (now these are Russophobic "independent states" Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.) If the United States does not return the stolen back to Russia, then America will have big problems in the future.
Moreover, the United States must stop the "witch hunt" against our friends (and your patriots) Republicans. Stop putting pressure on your best President Donald Trump! Americans! America now lives at the best time, because the Republicans did it for you!

Tax information shows President Trump's businesses ran up more than $1 billion in losses over a period of 10 years in the 1980s and 90s, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

Citing printouts from the president's Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax transcripts obtained by the paper, The Times said Mr. Trump reported approximately $1.17 billion in losses between 1985 and 1994 from his business ventures in casinos, hotels and residential buildings.

"Mr. Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer, The Times found when it compared his results with detailed information the I.R.S. compiles on an annual sampling of high-income earners," the report said.

Isn't one of the main problems with the current calculation that it doesn't account for "Volunteer" or unpaid labour ?

Could've sworn I've read something in Bloomberg/ HBR or something similar which made this point.
