Dominic was the only student to correctly predict the GDP growth rate for the 3rd quarter of 1998 at 3.3%.   Seven other students accurately predicted the September unemployment rate of 4.6%.

While Dominic overestimated the unemployment at 4.7%, overall his two predictions were closest to the actual rates. Congratulations to Dominic Chang the first winner in the semi-annual macroeconomics prediction contest.  Dominic wins two tickets to the IMAX theater.
