By increasing the size of the labour force, more goods can be produced and sold, in turn, increasing GDP. A larger factor is population growth or migration, as more workers can supply more jobs. Furthermore, the education levels, training, knowledge and skills of workers can increase the quality and productivity of the labour force.

The natural goods that a country supplies and the quantity of them, such as minerals, deposits or agricultures, all contribute to the level of economic growth and the nation’s trade. For instance, in the 17th century Australia was an agricultural nation, however, due to iron ore deposits and gold rushes it is now a leading exporter of minerals.
