How Technology Will Help the Economy Recover

The economy in the U.S. has been brought to a halt by COVID-19, forcing businesses across the country to close their doors, sending millions of workers out of a job. As of April 2020. Unemployment in the U.S. reached a staggering 14.7% – the highest ever recorded since 1939. In some states, as many as 1 out of every 4 people are out of work and 43 states have record-breaking unemployment levels. This has caused the National Bureau of Economic Research to declare on June 8, 2020, that the U.S. is officially in a recession.

Some of the economic changes that have happened during COVID-19 are here to stay. Remote work during COVID-19 has grown in both popularity and necessity, as in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2 out of every 3 Americans are starting to work remotely and 3 in 5 want to keep working from home, even after the end of the pandemic. Tech for remote work is also going in high demand – chromebooks, webcams, monitors, headsets, and keyboards are all seeing massive increases in sales during COVID-19. Software for remote work has also seen enormous amounts of growth. Zoom has gained over 190 million daily users over the course of just 3 months, Google Suite has had over 1 million paying businesses in February alone, and Google Meet has had a 30 times increase in daily users.
