US | Recovery patterns reflect tourism and office-based sector exposure

US GDP topped its peak pre-pandemic level in Q2, but the pace of the economic recovery was largely unchanged as the Delta variant sapped some of the steam out of the growth engine. GDP has returned to pre-pandemic levels in 38 states, while the rest are expected to surpass their peak by the end of 2021 except for Hawaii and New York, which we expect to do so in 2022.

What you will learn:

  • At the end of Q2, the US had recovered 63% of the jobs lost at the depth of the Covid19 downturn. Only two states—Idaho and Utah—have recovered all their lost jobs from the pandemic, and five more are expected to do so by the end of 2021.
  • The percentage of the population fully vaccinated stagnated at 54% by the end of September, and caseloads rose in states with low vaccination rates.
  • While the recent surge in COVID cases slowed the pace of growth in the economy, the long-term outlook remains favorable.

Finland’s growth forecast cut amid weak confidence and soaring inflation

We have lowered our 2022 GDP growth forecast for Finland to 1.5% from 1.7% last month, as weakening confidence further dampens the outlook. We expect inflation to peak higher with a greater passthrough to core prices, squeezing real incomes and denting consumption. Russia has accounted for almost 10% of Finland's goods trade, among the highest in Europe.

Why we see eurozone inflation slowing sharply next year

We have revised our 2022 eurozone inflation forecasts sharply higher, to 6.0%, since the start of the Ukraine war, as energy and food prices began to soar and new supply bottlenecks emerged. That said, we still see inflation decelerating sharply to 1.3% in 2023, putting us below consensus. While we recognise significant risks to our views, inflation should slow to below 2% in H2 2023.
