The economy recovered in the fourth quarter of 2021, with GDP expanding by 14.4% at a seasonally adjusted annualized rate. Household spending surged, increasing consumption by 18.7%. In December, unemployment fell to 4.2%, the lowest in 13 years. Inflation accelerated to 2.9% from 0.9% in 2020, the highest rate in 10 years. In addition, lower fixed capital investment cut growth by 1.5 percentage points on lower private business investment. Exports were down by 6.0% and imports fell 3.5% from global supply-chain disruptions. GDP is estimated to grow by 4.0% this 2022 and 3.1% in 2023 as domestic demand strengthens from accommodative financing conditions, accumulated savings, and an easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
