2016 Economic data

United States Economic Growth

Growth will slow in 2022 from 2021, on tighter financial conditions. That said, the buoyant labor market will support private consumption, investment should stay fairly healthy as firms look to boost productive capacity, and the Ukraine war will support the energy sector. Possible new Covid-19 variants, an intensification of the war and tensions with China are risks. FocusEconomics panelists see GDP growing 2.8% in 2022, which is down 0.4 percentage points from the previous month’s forecast. In 2023, our panel sees the economy expanding 2.0%.
