SMC Business Cycle and the ADAS Questions

Question Description

Can you help me understand this Economics question?

While over the long run, the economy grows about 2 to 3% per year on average, over the shorter term, the economy goes through business cycles. Think about the growth rate of GDP, the inflation rate, and the unemployment rate over the last 12 quarters. Once you’ve looked at the data, can you draw conclusions about the state of the economy? Would you describe the economy as booming, recovering, or in recession during the last few years? Why? Use the AD-AS model to illustrate this graphically.  Which curve do you think caused the change? Explain your reasoning.
