# What would be the GDP of the Roman Empire?

I understand that this particular question is hard to answer. However, do there exist any historical record to how much was the GDP of Rome at some period? If not, could you give me a speculation or a guess of how much it was during the height of the Empire?

• There is a series of strong scholarly arguments that this question is unanswerable due to the anachronism of GDP as a theoretical concept. – Samuel Russell Jul 29 '15 at 7:55
• @SamuelRussell There's also an argument that it depends so much on various assumptions and inputs that it's not applicable to the present day! ;) I still think this is a good and answerable question (it has my vote), just trolling you and TBBT a little – capet Oct 15 '20 at 18:15

So 45,500,000 * $700 =$31,850,000,000.
