According to a new poll, Americans’ views on the economy have deteriorated significantly in the last month, with over half expecting the economy to worsen in the coming year. According to a poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, only 35 percent of Americans consider the national economy to be good, while 65 percent consider it to be terrible. This indicates a drop from September, when 45 percent of Americans said the economy was doing well.
The decline in Americans’ economic sentiment is associated with the rising cost of products across the country making purchasing more difficult. Consumer prices jumped 5.4 percent from a year ago in September, as per the Labor Department. Roughly, 47 percent of Americans believe the economy will worsen in the coming year, compared to only 30 percent who expect it to get better. Joseph Binkley, a resident of Indiana, said that there might be inflation but this is just a temporary economic problem.“ I think it’s mostly a supply-demand issue, as the economy is improving,” he added. Despite the decline in Americans’ economic outlooks, the AP-NORC poll revealed that people were generally optimistic about their financial conditions. 65 percent of Americans feel their financial status is favorable while, 24 percent believe their finances will deteriorate in the coming year. Additionally, the study reveals that the pandemic has aided employees’ negotiating power in that, 36% of Americans are very or extremely sure that if they wanted to, they could find a good job, while another 35% say they are “somewhat confident.”
It however is sad but true that, there are still economic disparities between Black and Hispanic Americans and white Americans. White people are far more confident in their capacity to pay an unexpected bill or medical expense than Black or Hispanic people are.
State economic status keeps on shifting and is sometimes unpredictable. Supply-demand chain difficulties, unemployment, and inflation mostly affect economies. However, there is always a solution to control and stabilize the economy only if the government applies the right strategies.
