Differentiate between real and nominal variables, Microeconomics

Differentiate between real and nominal variables. 

In economics, the distinction among nominal and real numbers is often made. Nominal variables -- like nominal wages, interest rates and gross domestic product (GDP) -- refer to amounts that are paid or earned in money terms. Real variables -- real wages, interest rates, and GDP -- are corrected for the effects of inflation. They show the value of these numbers in terms of the purchasing power of wages, interest, or total production.
