The growth of the economy, measured by gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, has been trending downward for decades.
This is a reflection of the decline of manufacturing and the rise of services.
According to the latest data from the World Bank, GDP per capita fell by 1.7% in the first quarter of 2017.
GDP per capita has dropped by more than 30% since the late 1980s.
This trend is the result of two things.
First, the economic policies of the US Federal Reserve (the central bank) have made the economy weaker.
The US is now in a deflationary spiral.
Second, the Federal Reserve’s policies have made growth more vulnerable to the shocks of global economic instability.
The economy is vulnerable to external shocks and falls in oil prices, and has been for decades, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF).
The WEF says that the US has experienced the worst global financial crisis since the Great Depression, with the world’s central banks having raised interest rates to the lowest in the world.
There has been a sharp decline in exports in the US, which have fallen by around 40% since 2014.
Inflation, the value of the price of goods and services, is also falling, as consumers are less willing to pay higher prices.
While the economy has not experienced the Great Recession since 2008, it is facing a potential downturn as global economies are in the process of slowing down.
Since the mid-2000s, US consumer spending has fallen by almost 80% and unemployment has been at a 10-year high.
As a result, the unemployment rate has fallen to 5.3% in March 2018.
For the year 2017, US GDP grew by 3.2% and consumer spending by 3%, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
According the US Census Bureau, unemployment is currently at a 4-year low of 4.5%.
But despite the decline in economic activity, there has been little sign of an economic recovery in the United States.
What do you think?
Is the economy slowing down?
What does this mean for the US economy?
Are we heading for a recession?
Do you think the Federal Government has done enough to tackle the crisis?
