U.S. economy shows a troubling sign not seen since the global crisis – experts

The growth of gross national income in the United States is lagging far behind the dynamics of GDP - the difference at the moment is the maximum since the global crisis, Macquarie warns. This state of affairs may signal more serious problems in the country's economy than expected. The assessment of experts reports investing.com with reference to Business Insider.

In the third quarter, the gross product of the United States grew by 5.2%. However, behind these optimistic results may lie more serious problems than it seemed, if you look more closely at the indicators of gross national income. It reflects the amount of total compensation paid to manufacturers, while GDP reflects the total cost of production. Compensation has been well below cost for nearly 17 years and is now at its lowest level since 2008. Such results point to an economic downturn, experts say.
