The Democrats and Republicans are yet to reach a consensus on further stimulus package for the US economy.
The delay in releasing stimulus into the economy could worsen the unemployment rate and force states to increase spending cuts.
Adam Posen, president of Peterson Institute for International Economics, shared an article on how additional stimulus is essential for the US economy to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Democrats propose a stimulus package of $3.4tn, while the Republicans have proposed $1tn.
Lack of consensus on the stimulus may result in spending cuts by states causing a deeper recession, loss of between 4% and 5% of GDP and an increase in unemployment by 4% to 5%.
