Question Description

In Okunland, a country that operates according to Okun's law, if the natural rate of unemployment is 4 percent, what is the actual rate of unemployment if output is 2 percent above potential? 

Answer: 3%

Final Answer

2(actual unemployment-natural unemployment )=(potential GDP-actual GDP)/Potential GDP*100%

2(x-4)=-2 Since actual is above potential

(x-4) =-1  

x=4-1=3

Actual rate of unemployment =3%
