Abstract

There has been much talk about a disappointing recovery in the wake of the Great Recession—that this time it is much slower.

The comparison is made using a scaled-down version of the sophisticated and powerful models that real forecasters actually use. Applying it to real GDP growth, unemployment, inflation, and the federal funds rate suggests that the recovery looks consistent with past recoveries—at least so far.
