Hedonic Pricing
Hedonic Pricing is an approach used for the calculation of output in an economy. To use a simple example: In the United States' GDP measures, a personal computer purchased in 2009 is not put in at its nominal cost, but with a higher value. This is based on an adjustment made for the increased processing power and storage when compared with a PC 10 or 20 years ago, assuming that additional computing power and storage will have a higher value than the price tag of the item purchased. A substantial portion of annual GDP growth during the past decade is attributed hedonic pricing and is heavily questioned by a number of economists.
