The US has the largest economy in the world. It is highly industrialised and some of the main industries include; petroleum, steel, motor vehicles, aerospace, telecommunications, chemicals, electronics, food processing, consumer goods, lumber and mining.
The US economy is dealing with slow growth rates, unemployment and increasing national debt since the recession of 2008/2009 however economists expect much higher growth in the US economy in 2014. The IMF expects growth to increase from 1.9% in 2013 to 2.8% in 2014. The IMF expects a drop in unemployment to 6% in 2014. The indicators are good. The private sector is growing, federal spending will continue and some of the underlying drags on the economy are diminishing. Cheaper energy coming from increased oil exploration, gas fracking and renewables has helped to bring more jobs back to the US. The manufacturing sector is growing again and manufacturing technology is improving.
There is a shortage of housing as a result of limited construction in recent years. Satisfying this demand should provide a much needed boost for the construction industry. There has also been considerable under investment in many other areas of the economy during the credit crunch and it is expected that there will be growth in the IT sector as companies carry out much needed upgrading of systems.
Inequality is a major issue in the US economy. More of the wealth is going to the top 1% of high earners and middle incomes are stagnant. Tax reform is necessary for the redistribution of wealth. By putting more money in the pockets of the lower and middle classes the US economy will start to see some real growth.
