This is a great piece of work. How long do you think the Fed can string this along. Maybe they can keep effective demand above TFUR for an extended period.

Fred,
That is what I am researching now. How long could the Fed string this along?
Much depends on if labor share rises with lower fuel costs, but the 10-year could go down to 1.6% and headline inflation could go down to 1%.
Effective demand would rise another 2%. That would be huge. We could see a resurgence of employing labor and capital.
I do not see a small lift off of the Fed rate having much of an impact in that scenario. The key is those 10-year rates falling and staying low. They can offset a small rise in the Fed rate.

Data as of 1stQ-2017
Effective Demand = $17.613 trillion
Real GDP = $16.842 trillion
Productive Capacity is rising to next business cycle = $23.285 trillion
UT index is rising = +3.9%
Effective demand limit = 76.2%
TFUR = 72.3%
ED Fed rate rule (down from a peak of 3.8% in 2014) = 1.4%
Estimated Natural Real Interest rate = 2.0%
Short-term real interest rate (fallen from 2.8% peak in 2014) = -0.3%

There is no recession for 1stQ-2017. I am expecting a recession by end of 2017.
