Income and Expenditure: The USA

Country Briefing

About This Report

Jun 2019

US consumers have one of the highest levels of per capita gross income and consumer expenditure among developed economies, and their discretionary spending power continues to rise gradually. However, the income gap remains high, resulting in market polarisation and restraining middle-class expansion. A monetary tightening policy will lead to slower growth in income and expenditure in the USA in the coming years, while a possible trade war would also pose a risk to the consumer market.
