presented in the first paragraph.

"Qualifies," in this case, means "limits." So, if the first paragraph says, "Economists predict XXXXX," and the second paragraph says "XXXXX will be true when YYYYY is true, but not when ZZZZZ is true," then the second paragraph qualifies the claim--it doesn't not dispute or contradict the claim, but rather limits its applicability.

Hope this helps!

It basically means that, the particular sentence being talked about is an assertion being made by the author which he believes to be true and also kinds of wants the readers to take it as true.
