The real GDP line shows the net impact of the shifts in AS and AD over time and the full employment real GDP line shows the net impact of technology and increasing factor supplies over time. All 3 scenarios are consistent with the statement real GDP growth is 4% while full- employment GDP growth is 3%. At time 0, in graph A, real GDP is equal to full employment real GDP, so that unemployment is at the natural rate and there is no tendency for inflation to rise at time 0 (but after time zero there will be a tendency for inflation to rise). In graph B at time 0, (but after time zero there will be a tendency for inflation to rise)....
