effective labor share > capacity utilization * (1 - unemployment rate)

Effective Demand = $18.433 trillion

Real GDP = $18.671 trillion

Productive Capacity = $24.872 trillion

UT index is at effective demand limit = -0.92%

Effective demand limit = 74.1%

TFUR = 75.1%

ED Fed rate rule = 4.0%

Estimated Natural Real Interest rate = 2.3%

Short-term real interest rate = 2.8%

There is no recession for 3rdQ-2018. Chance of recession is growing as economy has now reached 2nd effective demand limit in this business cycle. I am forecasting that economic conditions will begin to contract in the second half of 2018.
