The US Economy
1. The United States of America has the world´s largest economy. 2007
GDP is believed to be three times the size of the next largest economy, Japan.
US dominance has been eroded by the creation of the European Union
common market and by the rapid growth of the BRIC economies, in
particular China.
2. The recent failure in the US housing and credit markets has resulted
in a slowdown in the US economy. The forces of supply and demand directly
drive the price levels of goods and services. What to produce, and how much
of it is to be produced depends on the price level fixed by the interaction of
supply and demand.
3. The role of government in the US economy is very important when it
comes to decision-making in monetary and fiscal policies. The federal
government takes all the necessary initiatives to ensure the growth and
stability of the United States. The US government makes full use of
economic tools such as money supply, tax rates, and credit control to adjust
the rate of economic growth. The US Federal Government also regulates the
operations of private business concerns in order to prevent monopolies. The
government provides support for national defense, monetary aid for research
and development programs, funds for highway construction and
infrastructure in general.
4. The question of national debt is a controversial one within the US.
American consumers are also increasingly dependent on debt and have been
re-mortgaging their houses to higher loan amounts, and using the extra cash
to fund shopping. This debt figure is the largest in the world in absolute
terms, but as a percentage of GDP it is less than Japan and similar to several
European countries. Most of the debt is funded by central banks and
sovereign wealth funds from Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
