    How do GDP and GCF differ? What is the difference between the kinds of GDP such as GDP PPP? I looked but didn't understand any explanations on the internet.

    The explanation on Wikipedia seems pretty straightforward


    GCF = gross capital formation
    This might be of use - http://ideas.repec.org/p/kud/kuiedp/0430.html

    GFCF = Gross fixed capital formation - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gross_fixed_capital_formation

    Don't necessarily trust Wikipeida fully - verify with other sources.
