a. \$12,332.2 billion

b. \$3218.9 billion

c. \$3093.5 billion

d. \$18120.5 billion

Explanation:

a. The value of Consumption Expenditure = Sum of consumption expenditure on all goods and services

= \$1,367.1 billion + \$2,666 billion + \$8,299.1 billion

= \$12,332.2 billion

b. The value of Government Expenditure = Sum of expenditure by federal Government and State & Local government

= \$1224.0 billion + \$1994.9 billion

= \$3218.9 billion

c. Gross Investment = Sum of investment and inventories

=Non-residential fixed investment + Residential fixed investment + Change in private inventories

= \$2336.2 billion + \$645.4 billion + \$111.9 billion

= \$3093.5 billion

d. Nominal GDP = C + I + G + (X-M)

= \$12332.2 billion + \$3093.5 billion + \$3218.9 billion + (\$2264.9 billion - \$2789 billion)

= \$18120.5 billion
