We anticipate 2022 will be a ‘MESSI’ (Moderating Expansion with Sticky Supply-driven Inflation) year for the US economy. After experiencing one of the most severe economic shocks of the past century in 2020, the US economy has vaulted into one of the most rapid recoveries in modern history in 2021.

  • Strong organic income support favors a consumer spending rotation in 2022.
  • A gradual labor supply recovery should drive stronger job growth in 2022.
