- ‘This is regularly done to measure gross and net national products or the output of a diverse industry.’
- ‘Hobson calculates that the British ‘military burden’ between 1870 and 1913 averaged a mere 3.2 percent of net national product; by contrast, the figure for the United States between 1950 and 1974 was 9 percent - nearly three times higher.’

- ‘When a country depletes its natural capital, this is typically ignored in the national accounts, even though depreciation of man-made capital is allowed for (to convert from GNP to net national product, NNP).’
