Assume \$300 of canned soup produced in year 1 is not sold until year 2. Which of the following GDP transactions is correct?
The canned soup sale will add to total GDP in year 2, when it is consumed.
In year 2, investment will fall by \$300 and consumption will increase by \$300.
In year 1 consumption is improperly inflated by $300.
The net change in GDP in year 2 is a positive $300.
Over the two years, there is no change in GDP since the soup was not consumed when it was produced.
