It's not a secret that GDP is one of the most important measures of a country's economic activity. Being calculated as a change in the value of all goods and services produced by the economy, it serves as an indicator of economic health. At the start of 2021, we can say that measures taken by both the Federal Reserve and the government back in 2020 worked out just fine. The 3rd quarter GDP jumped by 33.4% after the plunge in the previous quarter. Will we see an even better outcome this time?
