A Pivotal Moment In Economic History

The dust is settling from the economic shock caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the Russia-Ukraine War is hot, the post-pandemic inflation crisis is far from over and seems likely to force the Fed to invert the yield curve, fueling fears of an economic downturn, creating stock market uncertainty, and, in some quarters, of a worldwide financial disaster. It is a pivotal moment in U.S. economic history. 

Amid the considerable gloom and doom, Fritz Meyer says the index of business activity in the service sector, which accounts for 89% of U.S. gross domestic product, ticked up in August to 56.9%. No collapse is under way, Fritz says. Rather, the pace of business activity in the service sector in August in about the rate averaged in the the 11-year boom from April 2009 through February 2020, when Covid hit. Moreover, the forward-looking new orders sub-component of the ISM purchasing managers index came in at 61.8%.
