An economy can be defined as the representation of the total rupee value of all goods and services produced over a specific time period, which is often referred to as the size of the economy. The gross domestic product (GDP) is one of the main indicators that are used to measure the country's economic growth.
An economy encompasses all activities related to production, consumption and trade of goods and services in an area. An economy applies to everyone from individuals to entities such as corporations and governments.
