Give reason or explain the following statements:

1) Income from second hand sale of goods is excluded from national income.

Answer: 

1) Income from the second hand sale of goods is not included in the national income of that current accounting year. This is because the value of these goods was included in the national income in the accounting year in which they were produced. Thus, if the value of these goods is also included in the current year, it will lead to the problem of double counting of the value of such goods.
