Consider an economy that initially has a labor force of 2000 workers. 1900 of them are employed and each works 40 hours per week. 10 units of output are produced by each hour of labor.

What is the total output per week? 2) By what percent has total output fallen relative to the initial situation? What is the value of the Okun's law coefficient relating the loss of output to the increase in unemployment rate?
