Gross national income is the gross domestic product (GDP), minus the earnings sent overseas, but adding the earnings received by New Zealand residents from overseas production. Because of the high levels of overseas investment in New Zealand, there have been more funds leaving the country than coming in. This is reflected in the fall of national income relative to GDP after the 1970s.
