    How Far from Normal? Moody’s Analytics & CNN Business on the U.S. Economic Recovery

    We’re coming up on six months since COVID-19 turned the world upside down. We are adjusting; however, few things feel normal.

     Most of us are wearing masks and social distancing, while our favorite sports teams play in empty stadiums and arenas. Our work lives are hardly typical, either. Many are unemployed and many of those fortunate to have jobs continue to work from home. How far from normal are we? And how much progress are we making toward whatever “normal” will mean in the future? 

    Through the lens of the new Back-to-Normal Index by Moody's Analytics and CNN Business, we will examine these tough questions and more. Join Annalyn Kurtz of CNN Business as well as Mark Zandi and the Moody’s Analytics team as they discuss how the U.S. economy is faring toward recovery.
