Econ 736 Analytical Assignment #3
Using the data above, calculate the sacrifice ratio for the US economy between the 1990‐2005 period

rational expectations? Based on the answer you calculated above, can you say anything about whether
people in the economy form expectations based on rational expectations or adaptive expectations? [Note:
you do not have to calculate the value of the sacrifice ratio under adaptive or rational expectations here;
rather, you may simply state what values they would be.]
