Economics
English term or phrase: GNP
Hi.

I'm looking for an "official" reference (a World Bank glossary, IMF glossary, etc.) where it states that GNP can be translated as PIB or PBI. My client changed all my PBIs to PIBs, and I'm trying to indicate that my choice was just fine. Please help!

Thanks
Sandra

PNB


Explanation:
Perdona que te corrija pero creo GNP es el producto Nacional Bruto. (PNB) GDP equivale a PIB. De donde saco tu cliente la expresion PBI? No existe en español

PBI and PIB


Explanation:
Both versions are correct but with a simple Google search for PBI there are 89.800 answers instead for PIB the answers are 137.000.

International Monetary Fund glossary gives you another version: PNB (producto nacional bruto):

World Bank Glossary gives the version PIB:

neutral  patinba: PBI (en realidad incorrecto) era muy difundido en el Cono Sur, pero se está haciendo un esfuerzo para eliminarlo. El Banco Central Argentino ya utiliza PIB en sus publicaciones.

Por lo menos en el Cono Sur, PBI es muchísimo más frecuente que PIB. ¡Suerte!
