What exactly is the current state of the United States Economy?
From a macroeconomic view, I am trying to write a description of the current US economy. I am looking at factors such as: Inflation, Mortgages, Inflation, Unemployment, Banking, and Interest Rates. I can not find any information about this in words that I am able to understand. All of the numbers are completely confusing me because I have no idea what any of this means. Can anyone explain to me in words that I can understand, exactly what is going on with our economy today?
