Our US virtual toll free numbers and call forwarding services make it very simple for US customers to get in touch with foreign firms, and that too without any international call charges. We have been helping foreign businesses to build their base in US for almost two decades now.
Before launching business in the US, it is important to get to know more about the economic opportunities in this country. Here is a look at the US economy.
Overview of the US Economy
The US economy is one of the largest economies in the world with its per capita GDP of $55,868 in 2015 (but this number has been stagnant) and it should grow immensely in 2017 and beyond. The US economy is responsible for around 20 percent of the total global economic output. The major contributors to its economy are services oriented companies such as US technology firms. Tech firms help fuel the military equipment, computer, medicine, pharmaceutical, and aerospace industries, for instance.
The US economy was the supreme economy all over the world for over a century, however, it slipped to the second position in 2014 when China overtook it. When it comes to nominal GDP though, the US is still the largest economy in the world; China is ahead of US only in terms of GDP based on purchasing power parity.
The US economy is a capitalist economy and in 2017 America is poised to spring forward. Overall, American businesses have the right to develop new products and lay off workers according to their discretion. This is not the case in businesses in other countries such as Japan and Western Europe.
This is why it becomes extremely difficult for US firms to expand their services to these countries. On the other hand, when foreign firms want to enter the US market, they find it very easy to do without any major barriers.
After the Great Recession in 2007 which lasted until 2009, America seems ready to grow again at a healthy rate. What has been hurting America is wage stagnation, rising medical costs, and income inequality. Again though, with America voting in a pro-business leader, the American economy is ready to ignite upward.
