The decline in economic activity and the highest level of unemployment since the 1930-ies brought down tax revenues and government spending increased. Also decreased consumption fell, business investment and housing construction, the number of new applications for unemployment benefits began to grow again, according to the material.

In March, the authorities sent two trillion dollars to support the economy in may, the government has allocated three trillion dollars. In July, it began a discussion of allocation of additional trillion dollars, reminds the author.

The US has always had a good ability to recover, but this time they will probably have to fall into the abyss created by the coronavirus even lower before recovery can begin, sums up the publication.
