This graph shows American consumer spending against the real earnings, which is important to look at in America because a large share of the American GDP is made up of consumer spending. This graph is important because a difference in earning and consumer spending can be an indicator of a bad economic situation.

    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.
