BRIEF: GDP gets it glad rags on

After a depressing winter hiding inside and binging on carbs, our GDP has bounced back, with its beach body all ready for summer. If you remember April to June this year, it’s probably because you didn’t go out at all. This made for one of the most dire quarters for economic activity. Looks like ya’ll made up for it big time in the following quarter: July – August. Latest data shows our gross domestic product – the amount of goods and services produced by the country – for that period grew by 13.5% compared to the previous quarter. This was way better than the experts were hoping for. But we’ve still got a long way to go.  The increase in GDP still doesn’t take us to pre-lockdown levels. But it is good news anyway, and even more motivation for us all to do Dezemba responsibly so that more economy-crushing restrictions don’t have to be imposed. Our GDP has just had her bikini line waxed guys. Don’t let her down.
