National Wealth

The value of all assets less all liabilities held within a country. Assets included in natural wealth calculations include technologies, natural resources, infrastructure and so forth. It is a way to measure a country's economy (and is especially useful in measuring a nation's ability to control debt), but it is not as commonly used as the gross domestic product.
