Some of the country’s top economists are painting a grim picture for the U.S. They say America will likely be stuck in a deep economic downturn for a while. About half of the National Association of Business Economics members expect the U.S. gross domestic product (the broadest measure of the economy) won’t return to its pre-pandemic level until 2022. Most of those experts also say the U.S. job market won’t bounce back until 2022 at the earliest. Nearly 80% of the NABE economists predict there is a good chance for a “double-dip” recession. That means an economic downturn that starts to recover but then worsens again before fully recovering.
