Consumers and the Economic Outlook - US - Summer 2022

“Despite yet another COVID-19 variant, the US economy ended 2021 in good shape, with rising consumer confidence and unemployment rates that fell to a pandemic-era low. Alongside the strong economic gains, consumers’ financial situations also continued to improve, with most remaining optimistic about their finances going into 2022. As the US enters the new year, all eyes will be on inflation and whether supply chain conditions can improve, with the former strongly dependent on the actions the Federal Reserve decides to take in 2022.”
