    I told you that is because of the number of population that they count. Bd government count it with 148 million and they 165 million.

    But all of these is based on 1995 base year.

    In terms of PPP bangladesh has 1600 usd per capita gdp with 1995 base year and counting 165 million population.

    This is higher then Myanmar's 1400 usd PPP per capita GDP.

    Though in real term it is much higher for Bangladesh.

    Bottom line all of these figure is based on 1995 base year...period and population of 148 million or 165 million.

    And what I'm saying is every country has mitigating circumstances, exceptions and provisos, but at the end of the day, you have to look at cold, hard statistics.

    So what do you think are we not looking or blind??? But government is trying to upgrade all these backward stat data to a new one which is relevant with present one.

    Up gradation of base year to 2005 and population to 148 million not 165 million which many international organization uses.

    India has been calculating inflation based on base year of 1993-95 till 2010, I don't see any sudden jump of GDP/capita after 2010 and India has witnessed revolutionary changes in private sector after 95.

    Anyway Bangladesh GDP/capita Nominal is 678 usd.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...er_capita#IMF_estimates_between_2000_and_2009

    For the economics illiterate Bangladeshis here - The Nominal Gross Domestic Product measures the value of all the goods and services produced expressed in current prices. On the other hand, Real Gross Domestic Product measures the value of all the goods and services produced expressed in the prices of some base year.

    There goes the canard of 1995 base year up bd arse and another sad ending of bd wet dream!

    Indian GDP base year is 2005 and is currently working on to upgrade that to 2010.

    It's been upgraded to 2005 after 2010, base year was 1993-94 before 2010.

    India's Inflation Index With New Base Year From May 14

    Anyway Nominal GDP is counted based on current price while Real GDP is measured based on a base year. So it doesn't matter actually.

    GDP base year and inflation base year is totally different thing.. LOL

    Indias base year were never 93-94 but was 95-96 and adjusted every 10 years. The next year was adjusted to 2005/2006.

    Base year means base year for inflation adjustment, while nominal is not adjusted and based on current price.

    You remain, as always, the dumbest Indian in this Forum. Don't you really know the difference betwwn GDP and GNI? Ignorant, go and learn in the Primary school.

    I think you are confusing between GDP and GNI. Would you mind reading post #214, the definitions are given there.

    Maybe you should read what he said, the GDP per capita figure is also mentioned in that very article.

    Allow me to quote it for you,

    He was talking about nominal and real GDP. The latter is adjusted for inflation based on a specific year e.g. 1995. However, you can't measure every single penny that's exchanged in a country so to calculate GDP, whether real or nominal, they choose a group of representative industries from which to make the calculations from I believe. This is where the confusion comes from. LaBong was not talking about the difference between GNI and GDP. Even with GDP, nominal GDP is simply the aggregate of consumption + savings + investments + net import/export at the nominal price i.e. unadjusted for inflation so the inflation base year is irrelevant. What the Bangladeshis are talking about, I think, is that the representative industries they use to calculate Bangladesh GDP are from the 1995 convention and thus is not fully representative of their economy now. Atleast, I think that's what they mean.

    Now, throw in PPP and you get into an even bigger hornet's nest as this adjusts for differences in purchasing power e.g. if a Toyota Corrolla costs $10000 in Thailand but $20000 in Japan, even if a Japanese person earns twice as a Thai, they can only afford the same number of Toyota Corollas. The problem with PPP adjustments is it's very subjective what baskets of goods and services you would use to represent everyday consumption. So PPP in itself is confusing and controversial.
