Why is an economy's output, in essence, is also its income?

• economics -

Its really the VALUE of an economy's output is also its income.

Think of a simple example, then expand. Consider a barber who gives 20 hair cuts a day and charges \$10 each. The value of the barber's output is 20*\$10 =\$200. But that is also his daily income.

Now consider a dress maker, who buys \$10 worth of cloth to make a dress which sells for \$210. Total output is \$210. However the income of the dress maker is only \$200. The missing \$10 is a part of the output/income of the seller of the cloth. So, again the value of total output= total income.

Everything that is produced and sold is total output. It is also the income of the producers and sellers

I hope this helps.
