Here is a graph with the latest information available for Effective Demand as I calculate it.

Effective Demand = Real GDP * effective labor share/(utilization of labor * utilization of capital)

Since capacity utilization was adjusted downward, now the effective demand limit has been raised a bit to around $16.1 to $16.2 trillion.

Potential real GDP is still trending exactly on the same low new normal.
