Unemployment has increased from 5 percent to 9 percent. Inflation has decreased from 4 percent to 1 percent. Gross Domestic Product has decreased in the past two consecutive quarters from (-1) percent to (-1.5) percent, which has caused a contraction in output. Consumer confidence has dropped from eighty-five on the Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index to sixty-seven.
