I wonder if anyone is checking how much they are costing us and if the information is relevant !!

Durrr, the Census data is not really current. The population clock is a projection using growth rates...Derrp

I think most people would be able to differentiate between enumeration by Census, and adding projections to the latest Census...

Take into account that some people are confused by facts and figures. By his own admission, Durrp is one among a few others on here.

Maybe the main thing to take out of this is that Canadians are gradually getting more intelligent!

Yeah, but half of Europe isn't sitting on permafrost.

I just find it interesting that our country has less population than one state, although, when
one drives from one end of california to the other, it seems much less populated than 37 mill.

I love california, I could easily live there, as long as I am close to the ocean, as I am now.

lol Who says evolution can't continue under stable population? Evolution continues as long as there is life, period.

Yep. Population wise, sure. GDP wise, Shanghai isn't even close. Two Shanghai would be about 30% of our gross domestic product.

Nope, not really close. For every dollar we produce, China produces 5, however. There's almost 40 Chinese for every 1 Canadian. So, one Canadian produces about 8 times more economic activity than one Chinese person.

No, though that's what most people think. Mostly services, the service industry accounts for nearly 4/5ths of our GDP. Manufacturing is about 13%. Energy is 3%. Agriculture, forestry and fishing is about 2.2%. Coincidentally China is now putting more emphasis on their domestic economy.

Canada is a world leader in agriucultural, energy, and forestry exports, but these are only small parts of the total Canadian economy.

That's all very nice but generally speaking to generate money you have to kill something or mine something. Services just spread money around that is already there.

That's not true. You can purchase goods manufactured elsewhere and sell them once you import them.

Or sell value added products by importing raw materials and processing them into something more valuable.

And which of those good were produced without mining something or killing something?

I wasn't denying that producing goods requires materials that are dead or mined...I was denying that service industries simply spread money around that is already there. That's not true, they add value. A cup of coffee from Tim Horton's is sold for more than the cost of all the raw materials and inputs...

But that is NOT generating money, it's just taking it out of the consumers' pockets!

What's there to figure out? I was talking to China about the GDP contributions of various secotrs in our economy, and you're on about creating money. Economic activity creates money. Investments create money. A corporation gets a loan from a bank, and that turns into economic activity which drives our GDP up...

Quote:

So, then where is all the money coming from? If services account for 80% of our GDP, how can you explain the difference in dollar figures? Give it a try.

Nothing to try, anything can be put on "paper".

So, you're trying to tell me that if I catch a fish, kill it, gut it, and sell it to you for a dollar, that I created the money that you're paying me with? How is that any different than if I pick up a rock and sell it to you for a dollar? How is that any different than if I brew a pot of coffee and sell a cup to you for a dollar?

Killing a fish and mining a rock both fall under the criteria I mention. Something was killed to generate the coffee.

Right, but you're telling me these things generated money. Selling the fish I killed is no different than selling you a cup of coffee. You already had the dollar. How did I create the dollar you're paying me with? I didn't. I believe you said somethign about spreading money aroiund that is already there. The money is created in the service sector. Banking.
