Based on domestic production we observe the following income flows in a period:

  1. labor income of domestic residents: 150\$

  2. capital income received by foreign residents with a foreign citizenship: 5\$

  3. capital income of domestic residents with a foreign citizenship: 15\$

  4. capital income received by foreign residents with a domestic citizenship: 25\$

  5. capital income earned by domestic citizens with a domestic residence: 20\$

Calculate the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and the Gross National Income (GNI) of the economy:

GNI refers to income associated to a particular set of individuals (citizens), regardless of where they earn their income.

Since geography and citizenship do not fully overlap, they might be different:
