Fact checking Biden on the economy BBC

“President Joe Biden says the US has made “historic progress” on the economy in the last 10 months.

In a speech before Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday in the US, he also talked about price rises and supply chain problems.

We have been looking into some of Mr Biden’s claims.

‘We’re experiencing the strongest economic recovery in the world’

Since shrinking by more than 30% in the first six months of 2020, the US economy has recorded a strong bounceback and returned to above pre-pandemic levels

China has also posted strong economic growth, but overall its economy didn’t contract last year – meaning it had less damage to recover compared with the US.

Under Mr Biden, the US economy has continued to grow this year, but a large part of the recovery happened under former president Donald Trump.” BBC

    He must be refering to the family, ’cause that sure ain’t true in ‘merica. The BBC chart is crap, too. That decline in growth in 2019-2020 was due to government mandated shutdowns and declarations of ‘non-essentialness’. Undoing those didn’t create any jobs at all, it simply allowed people to go back to what they were doing before, except where governments didn’t.
