EARLY WARNING: FOLLOWING MACROECOMETRICS

PROBLEMS WITH PYTHON DATABASE HANDLING STILL TO BE SOLVED. TENTATIVE CONCLUSIONS 

Predictors of Gross Domestic Product USA GDP (data from OECD 2018).

GDP: Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Current Billion USD, PPPs. Year: 2009-2016 INCOME: Net National Income (NNI) per capita, at current prices and PPPs, OECD=100

CORPORATIONS: Compensation of employees, non financial corporations, percentage of added value net CAPITAL: Net capital stock, volume, year 2010=100
