(MENAFN) The United States economy is already in a recession, according to data from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta's gross domestic product (GDP) model released on Friday.
In a declaration, Atlanta Fed stated that "the GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth, seasonally adjusted annual rate, in the second quarter of 2022 is -2.1 percent on July 1, down from -1.0 percent on June 30."
The number is lower than the 0.3 percent growth anticipated announced on June 27; the next report will be issued on July 7, it was added. On the other hand, Real gross private domestic investment growth decreased to -15.2 percent from -13.2 percent, according to the bank, whereas real personal usage expenditures growth fell to 0.8 percent from 1.7 percent.
According to the Commerce Department's third and final reading on Wednesday, the sharp decrease in data suggests that the largest economy in the world, which shrunk by 1.6 percent in the first quarter of the current year, may see a contraction in the months of April and June of the current year.
