Economic Confidence Improves in Europe, But All Other Components Remain Negative
Skerdian Meta • 1 min read
The economic confidence tumbled lower in the Eurozone during the coronavirus lock-downs, as well as the consumer confidence. The reopening was expected to turn things where they were before the pandemic, with economists expecting a v-shape recovery, but that’s not exactly happening.
Or at least, it will take much longer to get back to where we were pre-covid, than the time it took for the global economy to sink. After all, it’s much easier to break something, than to fix it. The economic confidence is recuperating in the Eurozone, but all other confidence indicators remain negative.
