May Sales Data Show Further Plunge in U.S. Economic Activity
All U.S. Sales Managers Indexes hit all-time survey lows in May reflecting the deep impact of the Coronavirus lockdowns.
The data comes in vivid contrast to the China Sales Managers Survey data, also published today, which shows the Chinese economy recovering rapidly.
Points of special note from the U.S. survey data include very low levels of Business Confidence and Sales.
The Staffing Index came in at an extremely low level reflecting the millions of continuing job losses.
