US deficit prediction is here

Based on recent reports, it appears that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has updated its projections for the US budget deficit this year, and it is now expected to be significantly higher than previously estimated.

The agency predicts that government spending will exceed revenues by $1.7 trillion in 2023, which is based on the deficit through July and preliminary estimates of revenues and expenditures in August and September.

This new projection represents a 13% increase from the estimate published in May, and it is $200 billion greater. Furthermore, the CBO anticipates that the budget deficit will range from $1.6 trillion to $1.8 trillion after 2023, before eventually rising to $2.9 trillion in 2033.

In a recent CNBC interview, Phillip Swagel, Director of the CBO, discussed the current state of the US government’s finances. Swagel acknowledged that despite the economic recovery and improving labor market, there is still a significant deficit that needs to be addressed.

He expressed concern that even with optimistic growth, it may not be enough to fully solve the issue. Swagel recommends that policymakers make tough choices regarding spending and revenue to guarantee the country’s financial sustainability.

Here’s what he said in his own words, as per the online publication the Daily Hodl.

“The challenge we face is that the fiscal deficit and trajectory are so difficult that even super optimistic growth is not enough by itself to make us sustainable. Growth will help and will make the policy environment better, but ultimately policymakers need to make some choices whether on spending or on revenue.”
