Part B Explanation For the most part, Okun’s law accurately predicts the general trends of Real GDP percentage growth: almost perfectly prior to 1990. There are many years where the prediction is either greater or lower by less than about 1%, but there are 2 areas of large trend disagreement: the late 1990’s and the since 2009. From 1996 to 1998, Okun’s rule predicted a GDP growth decrease while real GDP growth was increasing. Similarly, following the 2008 financial crisis, Okun’s law predicted GDP growth to increase from -4% in 2008 to over 4% in 2010 and the years following. However, real GDP growth reached only slightly above 2% and has largely hovered around that mark since, even though Okun’s law currently places it at 4.8%

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
