u18jjm2010 Economic Growth does not always lead to an increase in real GDP per person. This means that income and standard of living do not always increase during a period of economic growth.
Beret Economic growth means increase in GDP, not always accompanied by increase in GDP/person.
ericczhang I think most economists actually use the definitions of higher income and living standards as economic growth. I.e. most economists do not actually mistake GDP growth for economic growth. It's just that most people think they do.
choas69 if economic growth was faster than the growth of the population then GDP per capita increases too
