Motilal Oswal Report

U.S. President Joe Biden announced a $1.9 trillion Covid-19 package to tackle the pandemic-induced economic slowdown.

Will this bring the push needed for economic recovery? Maybe. But, the historical evidence is not favorable.

Against an average core fiscal deficit of 3.7% of gross domestic product in the U.S. over the pre-global financial crisis period (1998–2008), the shortfall had more than doubled to 7.6% of GDP over the post-GFC, pre-Covid period (2009–19).
