Two more graphs on real GDP in the USA. In the forth quarter of 2011, the level of real GDP was higher ($13,422 .4 billion) than that in the fourth quarter of 2007 ($13,326 billion) as Figure 1 shows. Figure 2 demonstrates that the increasing population did not allow real GDP per capita t reach the level of 2007: $42,727 vs. $43,791. In seems to be the task for 2012 to 2014 if no recession will occur.
