Posted in Economic Growth, Federal Reserve, Macroeconomics, Monetary Policy at 5:37 pm by davidprudente

Check out this brief article from today’s Boston Globe. The Fed thinks economic growth will slow over the next year and unemployment will increase. Based on what we’ve discussed in class, what indicators might the Fed be looking at in making this prediction? How’s ’bout I give you 1 extra credit point on tomorrow’s quiz for answering this correctly.

Here’s a little longer article from CNN.


  1. Mike Hu said,

    With this impending unemployment rise, who do you think it will affect first? Would it usually be the fresh graduates from college looking for jobs? I’m scared, but actually I’m not looking for a job next year.

  2. Mike Hu said,

    And wouldn’t this unemployment rise be on the margin? Would it really affect the graduates from rigorous academic preparations who have a lot to offer?

  4. Mike Hu said,

    Chris is a good cook and also a glutton.

  5. Mike Hu said,

    Do you think he’s good at cooking because he loves food or he loves food because he loves cooking?
