First-quarter U.S. growth figures on Thursday left the economy’s output just 0.9 percent below the pre-epidemic peak, and Washington’s stimulus checks have raised far more incomes than household spending, leaving significant unavoidable assets.

Immediate forecasts from both sides of the Atlantic will increase and the strong spending crisis will put pressure on central banks to limit the emergency stimulus measures introduced last year.
