Wall street has dropped a 2% on average (Dow Jones: -2.17%; S&P 500: -1.75%; Nasdaq: -1.55%) upon notice of Jerome Powell on the extent of the crisis. The Fed President has stressed that we are facing the "biggest recession since World War II", while the US economic reopening also continues to sow controversy and divide the country and the markets.
The president of the Federal Reserve (Fed) has rated the current recession in the United States caused by the coronavirus as "significantly worst since World War II". For this reason, it has asked for more fiscal incentives to mitigate the impact of the pandemic.
"Additional fiscal support could be expensive, but it's worth it if it helps prevent long-term economic damage and leads to a stronger recovery.. It is a commitment for our politicians, who exercise tax and spending powers, "he noted in a conference call at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.
For Powell, the scope and speed of this recession are without modern precedent. "We are seeing a sharp decrease in economic activity and employment, and the labor gains of the last decade have already been erased. Since the pandemic came into effect just two months ago, more than 20 million people have lost their jobs, "he explained.
Therefore, although it has considered that the economic response has been "timely and appropriate", added that "it may not be the final chaptergiven that the way forward is highly uncertain and subject to significant negative risks. "
