Coronavirus paralyzes a third of the US economy


The restrictive measures imposed by the authorities of the overwhelming majority of states could not but affect the economy the richest country in the world.


The Wall Street Journal, citing data from the analytical division of the international rating agency Moody's, reports that restrictions on the movement of residents, stoppage of catering facilities, universities, cinemas, beauty salons, parks and non-food stores, led to paralysis of 30% of the US economy.

Moody's analysts report that these measures have led to a drop in US GDP by 29% per day compared to the first week of March of this year.
In particular, the decline in this indicator in the state of California reaches 31,5% per day ($ 2,8 billion), and in another 15 states that account for 70% of US GDP, 40% (12,5 billion).

According to information from the rating agency, the loss of another thirty states and the capital of the country reaches 4,9 billion per day.

The saddest thing for Americans in these figures is that experts find it difficult to say when this recession will end, and are limited to rough forecasts.

According to Moody's lead analyst Mark Zandi, the decline will continue throughout the second quarter of 2020, and perhaps by the summer a gradual lifting of restrictions will begin, the effect of which will manifest itself very slowly.

      That's it...

        What, along with the character from obscene jokes, do you have for love and faith in certain "world scientists"? Not the first time you remember about them. Apparently, the training manual, compiled by some idiots, from a small mind abounds with references to them.

    The USA ranks Russia among the countries of the Third World, although the economy in the world takes 5-6th place. There is one justification - in Russia, the non-production sector, the banking sector and the services sector occupy not less than 30%, but much less, because a post-industrial society has not yet been built in Russia.

    If in the USA dog hairdressers, psychoanalysts and other husks ceased to work, and the economy does not suffer much ... it is enough to press a button and the printing press will start making money from the air. They will survive ...

    The world has already appreciated the USA ... now they are not a global hegemon, much less after the coronavirus pandemic. USA - will become an ordinary regional power.
    Although the new world order will nevertheless be established jointly by Russia, China and the United States.
