    1a. Describe what happens to the natural rate of unemployment and potential GDP if cyclical unemployment rises to 3 percent with other types of unemployment unchanged.

    b. Describe what happens in the natural rate of unemployment and potential GDP if structural unemployment fails to 1.5 percent with other types of unemployment unchanged.

    2. Self-correction is the ability of the economy to eliminate any imbalances between actual and potential output. Using an aggregate supply and aggregate demand, show why this self-correction process involves only temporary periods of inflation or deflation.

    See the attached file.

    We have,
    An increase in cyclical employment will have no impact on the natural rate of unemployment and the potential GDP
    If the structural employment decreases to 1.5% then in that case, natural rate of unemployment:
    Natural Rate of Unemployment=Frictional unemployment+Structural unemployment+Seasonal unemployment
    Or,
    Natural rate of ...
