The American economy contracted an annualized 1.6% on quarter in Q1 2022, slightly worse than a 1.5% drop in the second estimate. It is the first contraction since the pandemic-induced recession in 2020 as record trade deficits, supply constraints, worker shortages and high inflation weigh. Imports surged more than anticipated (18.9% vs 18.3% in the second estimate), led by nonfood and nonautomotive consumer goods and exports dropped less (-4.8% vs -5.4%). Also, consumer spending growth was revised lower (1.8% vs 3.1%), as an increase in spending on services, led by housing and utilities was partly offset by a decrease in spending on goods, namely groceries and gasoline. Meanwhile, private inventories subtracted 0.35 percentage points from growth, much less than a 1.09 percentage points drag in the second estimate. Fixed investment growth remained robust (7.4%) but housing investment was subdued (0.4%, the same as in the second estimate). source: U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis
