Several leading Fed policymakers signalled that the economy of the United States of America could begin to recover in the 2nd half of the year just after facing the worst recession in decades, but the economic growth is expected to be slow and unsatisfactory. Their recent assessments observed as a numerous American state started or transmitted toward reopening their economies, shutdowns for weeks to minimize the spread of the coronavirus.

The Fed policymakers further added that, over 30 billion US people have filed the jobless claims in the previous 6 weeks and meanwhile, the president of the Unite States Donald Trump has indicated for a restart to economic activity of the country to improve the household as well as enterprise-level balance sheets, even though the COVID-19 has continued to spread across the nation.

The vice chair of the Federal Reserve Richard Clarida said in a statement that we are living through the extremely dangerous downturn in the economic activity and major decrement in the unemployment that we have observed in our lifetimes. Unfortunately, the jobless rate is going to decrease in numbers that we have not seen ever before.

Still, Mr. Clarida said that he was confident that the Federal Reserve could restrict ongoing damage to the economy of the US, including that it was in the scope of possibility for the economic improvement to begin in the 2nd half of 2020 once businesses restart and people return to work. Stocks raised back instantly after his comment, which were not the severe from the Fed policymakers.
