this 2021 year will be different since the pandemic is occuring globally still. Based on the vaccine, and the rate of disease eradication these scheduled events may be changed or warped to a different situation.

ARTICLE COPIED AND PASTED FROM SANDFORDHEROLD.COM
- The aggregate economy will be better in 2021 than in 2020. This is a fairly easy call. It looks like total production of products and services will drop 4 or 5 percent in 2020. Most of the damage was done in the spring, and the economy has rebounded nicely in the second half of the year. However, the resurgence of the virus at the end of 2020 and the re-emergence of some economic restrictions in the country will cause growth to be slow, or slightly negative, at the end of 2020. REFERENCE <- Click for source
2. Unemployment will drop, but not all the way. A little more than half of the jobs lost from the COVID-19 recession have been recovered. The official unemployment rate has fallen to near 6 percent from the mid-teens levels in the spring. This is the good news. Yet in looking ahead to 2021’s job market, there are several worries.
“One is the jobs that have come back have not all been the ones that were lost. Businesses are revamping their hiring and shifting away from tasks requiring in-person contact. This means many jobless people today will need to take different jobs with different skill needs. Some companies will provide on-the-job training, but others will require formal training, such as at community colleges. There’s also the worry about jobless people who aren’t counted as unemployed because they haven’t been actively looking for work. Counting them as jobless means the actual unemployment rate is closer to 8 percent. A year from now the jobless rate will still be above 5 percent.”
3. There will be upward pressure on inflation and interest rates. As the economy recovers and spending increases, the massive amounts of money the Federal Reserve has injected into the economy will recycle faster. If the quantity of products and services don’t keep up, the situation described by the late economist Milton Friedman of “too many dollars chasing too few goods” will push the rise in prices (inflation) higher, possibly close to 3 percent. The Federal Reserve would likely respond by also raising interest rates.
4. Income inequality will widen. Rising income inequality has been a big issue in the 21st century. It results when incomes of top earners rise faster than incomes of lower paid earners. One of the reasons for the recent widening of income inequality is the replacement of many modestly-paid jobs by machines and technology. The pandemic will accelerate this trend.
5. Federal taxes will increase. Federal government debt — also known as the “national debt” — ballooned by more than $4 trillion in 2020, and another COVID-19 aid package could boost the amount to $5 trillion. Add to this the facts that federal taxes were cut in 2017 and the new Biden Administration wants some new spending initiatives, and the stage is set for pressure to begin to “put the federal fiscal house in order” in 2021 by increasing federal taxes. The most likely candidates for hikes are the corporate income tax and the personal income tax rates paid by higher-income taxpayers.
6. North Carolina will out-perform the national economy. The North Carolina economy and people have suffered mightily from both the COVID-19 virus and resulting recession. Yet several metrics show job losses and deaths on a per capita basis have been much better than in many other states.
This means North Carolina will come out of the pandemic with its reputation intact as a great state in which to live and work. In fact, the state’s economic brand may be enhanced. Households and businesses looking to leave states where the pandemic was more devastating will see North Carolina as an option for a new home. I predict growth rates in both economic output and employment in North Carolina will be better than in the nation in 2021.
7. New economic opportunities will arise in North Carolina. There will be significant reshuffling of the economic deck after the pandemic that will create new industries and expand others.
One area for growth is “supply chains.” A supply chain is simply a set of companies making inputs — or supplies — for companies making final products you and I buy. In the pre-pandemic world many of these supply chains were in foreign countries. The pandemic taught us such supply chains can be vulnerable if a virus hits a foreign country, even if leaving our country immune. Consequently, there will be an effort to rebuild domestic supply chains. With North Carolina’s large manufacturing sector, our state could benefit from investments in these chains.
Another need made obvious by the pandemic is to increase the nation’s self-sufficiency in medical supplies, from gowns to masks to ventilators to medicines. With our state’s tradition in textiles, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals, North Carolina is a “natural” for this production.
2021 will still be a challenging year. Even by year’s end we won’t be completely recovered from COVID-19. What will the 2021 economy look like?

WHAT ARE YOURS?!

There will be upward pressure on inflation and interest rates. As the economy will attempt to recover after the desctruction of the political and social system by Donald Trump former president 2016-2020. Efforts show slow recovers and spending increases but not by the amount expected, rise in jobs for marketing, programming, design, software, photography, and at home secretaries. America will be “broke” due to lack of preparation and no clear Stimulus payout plan. The massive amounts of money the Federal Reserve has injected into the economy will recycle faster. If the quantity of products and services don’t keep up, the situation described by the late economist Milton Friedman of “too many dollars chasing too few goods” will push the rise in prices (inflation) higher, possibly close to 3 percent. The Federal Reserve would likely respond by also raising interest rates.
Biden will make sure pay is fair and minimum wage is a standard per area. Biden will have to raise taxes most likely, but unlike previous presidents will do what he can to make sure everyone is accounted for.
Most importantly, efforts to stop Global Warming as its now a national emergency says Biden. The truth is it’s an extreme emergency Globally. Efforts from all countries will need to arise. Possible that Poland responsible for government attacks, and Chinese government becomes greedy using up resources for all of the world and cutting off trade.
Automated and A.I therapists, chatbot friends, doctors, surgeons, etc. make their breakthrough- ease of life goes from 0 to 10. Increases in happiness. Losses for Big Pharma. Investors of Bitcoin will see their stats have increased enormously and the biggest and best job for younger generations will be to write, and to game. Need for gamer critiques, gamers, and game testers. EA offers these on their website.
The start of the Fall Of Big Banks- with paypal, venmo, cash app, bitcoin, apple, and many, many “online banks” people will see the benefits. A huge increase in learning to trust one another (like us canadians do)
Borders will open and Canada will have huge amounts of latino and Americans migrate. Canada will thrive from the mixture. Americans and Canadians will finally become interbred and widely known.
A TON of parenting help, resources, samples etc. Basically everyone got pregnant.
Solar System expansion, and Europe and Asia get close to collision moving 5cm closer to each other annually.
More information will be discovered about Dark Matter. Additionally the holes on the sun will expand, the moon will get closer to earth, and if nothing intervenes then the lunar eclipse may be the last for humans.
While neighbors are finally learning what “being nice” is. I will be busy teaching everyone Canadian Values. (this part I know is true). Major Major improvements in Animal Welare. Not only will cow be prohibited in the future (maybe not now) but nutrition is HUGE in the Veterinary and Human media. If we’re lucky we will see an end to RX drug addictions.
America will, finally, after all these years restore it’s name with even better values as a Country who looks out for each other, a country of citizens who think nothing less than to smile at one another and be friendly. We will stop being pessimistic and start seeing the world for what it is. The year of peace and trust.
Trump will disappear. Everyone will forget about him, but me. Someone like Donald Trump does NOT give up, and if they have to, they fight and if they lose the fight they build a plan. Should we be worried 2024?
