This is the only period, apart from the low unemployment years of the late s, when workers at the middle and bottom of the wage distribution have seen sustained real wage growth.   The unemployment rate, for example, fell below CBO’s estimate of the “natural” rate of unemployment (the rate expected to prevail when the economy is operating at its full sustainable productive capacity). Yet inflation and wage growth were not signaling an overheating economy.
