 # Expenditure Method

## Expenditure Method of National Income

The expenditure method of calculating national income or gross domestic product takes into account the final goods and services produced in a country during a period of time.

The formula for calculating national expenditure is:

National income = C + I + G + (X M)

Where,

C = Consumption by residents of the nation

I = Investment

G = Government spending

X = Exports

M = Imports

Or National income = C + I + G + NX

Where,

Net exports (NX) = Exports – Imports

However, the expenditure method excludes the expenditures that are done on the purchase of shares, bonds, and second-hand goods.
