GDP is the value of all finished goods and services produced in a country in a year. GDP per capita is that value divided by the population.<br />
<br />
For example. A country has 300,000,000 people and produces 15,000,000,000,000$ of goods every year.<br />
<br />
15,000,000,000,000/300,000,000 = 50,000<br />
<br />
GDP = 15,000,000,000,000$<br />
GDP per capita = 50,000$

GDP may or may not change with inflation.

Best Answer
