A new threat to the US economy is named

The drop in the birth rate in the United States will create new problems for the American economy after the end of the coronavirus pandemic, Bloomberg reports.

In recent years, the total birth rate in the United States has fallen from 2.1 to 1.7 children per woman. In addition, 34% of American women want to postpone pregnancy or have fewer children because of the pandemic crisis. The Guttmacher Institute came to these conclusions in a survey.

Analysts at the Brookings institution also made a negative forecast. They estimate that half a million fewer children will be born in the United States next year than demographers initially expected. Together with 150,000 coronavirus victims in the US, this drop will affect the economy in the future. So, the States will lose a large number of consumers, workers, and taxpayers.

The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has spread almost all over the world. According to the latest WHO data, there are more than 16.5 million infected people, more than 650 thousand of whom have died.
