LAURA McKEEVER

Congratulations to Laura McKeever who is the winner for the Spring 1999 semester. Laura accurately predicted the U.S. unemployment rate for December 1999 at 4.1%. Anatoly Akselrod, Verona Chua, and Celio Suzuki also accurately predicted the unemployment rate, but were not as close as Laura for the GDP growth rate. In fact, the economic growth rate of real GDP was significantly underestimated by all students with the exception of Kai-Yi Lui who predicted a rate of growth of 6.5%. Real GDP for the fourth quarter 1999 actually expanded at an annualized rate of 5.8%. As the U.S. economy surpasses the Vietnam War period of economic growth and continues the longest expansion phase in our history, I commend Laura McKeever for her efforts and acumen on this macroeconomic project.
