For example, Nike could have a factory in Bangladesh that produces a billion dollars worth of shoes but the ppl who actually work in the factory earn a few dollars a day whilst the profits go to another country. GDP would give the false impression that Bangladesh gets a billion dollars from that factory.
GNI or GNP are far more reliable measures.
Also, Ireland is a country where emigration is normalised to a massive extent. It's a normal thing for people to do, even if there are no great push factors involved.
I highly appreciate that you used a Sebastian Vettel picture though!
