Stimulus checks in 2020 and 2021 averted a recession or perhaps depression in the United States. Inflation has grown as a result of the inflow of money to both individuals and corporations.
Politicians are now in a pickle. They must evaluate if more stimulus checks would increase inflation further or if it will help the United States control inflation. By the end of 2021, the stimulus checks and the $3 trillion in relief are said to have led to a 3% increase in inflation.
Millions of Americans benefited directly from the stimulus checks. According to Yahoo, if more relief money is spent on “discretionary products,” expenses may climb.
