The Economy Goes Off to College
The past year has been one for the history books with both crashing economic output and a subsequent bounce-back, though with some sectors still not at pre-pandemic levels. While 2020 was a year to forget in many respects, it’s important to remember that, from an economic perspective, it could have been a lot worse.
Like a student leaving home to go to college, the U.S. economy will have to make it on its own without much financial aid in 2021. And like parents saddled with a high debt burden and a mortgage to pay, the U.S. government may be limited in its stimulus support going forward.
