Separating Economic Measures from Economic Benefit

Presentation Overview

  • Looks at NWT economic performance over the last eight years (1999-2007) and how the NWT has led the country in growth over this period. Discuss growth across a variety of measures that have fed territorial Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
  • Dissects NWT economic performance (i.e., GDP) to examine where the growth has taken place and how much stays in the NWT.
  • Looks at measures such as resident labour income and employment to quantify the extent of benefits accruing to the NWT and its residents.
