IMF lowers US growth forecast

In its annual assessment of US economic policy, released on Friday, the IMF now says it expects US gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 2.9% in 2022, down from a previous estimate of 3.7% in April. . For 2023, the IMF forecasts growth of 1.7%, (against 2.3%), and for 2024, growth of 0.8%.

Last October, before new epidemic waves of COVID-19 linked to the new Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 and the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, which caused an increase in the prices of energy and products food, the IMF forecast for the United States a growth rate of 5.2% in 2022.

“We are aware that the path is narrow to avoid a recession in the United States,” IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said in a statement, noting that these projections carry a high degree of uncertainty.
