in Washington in a hearing seem to raise concern again,
as he said that the US economy may witness a new,
abnormal state of instability,
and this is mainly due to the measures that
will be announced with the outbreak of the epidemic.
Covid-19 again, and he also added that we are facing “extraordinary turmoil”,
and he did not comment on the recent interest rate hike decision
|when the US Central Bank raised interest rates
by 75 basis points during the past week,
to be the third time in a row, and thus an accelerated and
strict pace monetary policy to counteract high inflation.

increases in food and energy prices worldwide

and to see the market again in a “balanced state”,
because the current situation indicates the loss of many jobs,
and the labor market is still strong, according to the indicators that
indicate the arrival of unemployment rates to 3.7%,
with their expectation that we will see a significant rise
if the current situation continues to raise interest rates,
to find ourselves in the end at 4.4% next year,
according to the expectations announced this week.



Economist forecasts recession in the United States
