    It will be a nominal increase. Not a real increase in the purchase power of the persons

    Explanation:

    We will check for the effect of inflation:

    18,000 x 251/218 = 20.724,77

    18,000 dollars in 2010 have aprroximate the same purchase power of 20,725 dollars in 2018

    Therefore, there was no real wroth in the GDP per capita from this time period.

    It was all nominal increase, there was no improve in the purchase power of the consumer.
