Market price including cost of production + indirect taxes. GNP(MP) = C + I + G + (X-M) + (R-P) Net national product at market price is the net market value of all final goods and services produced, by the residents of a country, during a period of one year. If we deduct depreciation from GNP at market prices we get NNP at market prices. NNP(MP) – GNP(MP) = Depreciation 2. At Factor Cost (GNP(FC)) Gross national product at factor cost is the sum of the money value of the income, produced by and accruing to the various factors of production in one year in a country. In order to arrive at GNP at factor cost, we deduct indirect taxes from GNP at market prices and add subsidies to GNP at Market. Prices. GNP(FC) = GNP(MP) - Indirect Taxes + Subsidies Net national product at factor cost is the net money, value of all final goods and services produced by the residents of a country, during a period of year. It includes income earned by factors of production.
