Bank of America told investors on Thursday that the United States economy is already falling into recession amid the global Covid 19 pandemic.
“We officially declare that the US economy has fallen into recession, joining the rest of the world, and this is one deep descent,” wrote economist Bofa Michelle Mayer.
“Jobs will be lost, prosperity will be destroyed, and trust will be crushed,” she continued.
According to the bank, the US economy will collapse in the second quarter, when GDP is expected to decline by as much as 12%. In addition, the Bank of America notes that unemployment will double with 1 million job losses each month in the second quarter.
“Salvation will come if there is a focused and aggressive political response to compensate for the loss of economic activity and ensure a stable financial system,” Mayer concluded.

After it becomes clear who exactly survived in this fascinating struggle, it will be possible to decide what it is worth talking about.
