Proposed deletion[edit]

Source is clearly listed (IMF), so no reason it is not OR (and certainly not meaningless). --Jklamo (talk) 01:49, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

The IMF is a source for the numbers. It is not a source for comparing various countries, at various points in time in terms of nominal GDP. Doing something like that *IS* meaningless and constructing such tables simply betrays fundamental ignorance of economic concepts. Find a reliable source which carries out this kind of comparison. Volunteer Marek  02:26, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
For example [1], [2], [3] or [4]. --Jklamo (talk) 06:54, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
First source is a copy of a wikipedia article. Second one is tables of real gdp, with one table where nominal and real gdps are compared by country (it's essentially a measure of the Gdp Deflator. There's no indication that the third one is a reliable source (the, quote, "how to get a girl back after a break uphow do i get my ex girlfriend back how to get a girlfriend back how to get your ex girlfriend back fasthow to make your girlfriend want you" is a good indication that it's not). The fourth is IMF - again, there's no denying that IMF compiles statistics on nominal gdps. That's different than comparing economies across time and space in terms of nominal gdp. Volunteer Marek  07:06, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Screwed up?[edit]

Is the list screwed up? Somalia's a 120 billion economy now? — Junchuann Icons-flag-my.png 12:00, 16 December 2014 (UTC) Very screwed up, I tell you. Just updated it.Luckimg2 (talk) 14:53, 11 August 2015 (UTC)


For some reason, Alregia's GDP figured as less than a half of what the IMF estimated as for 2016. I made the correction. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:08, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
