The bottom is 389. Kahului-Wailuku-Lahaina, HI MSA - 35.0389 (!!!)

 

This is Maui.  Their entire economy is basically tourism.

Surprised to see such a big gap between Cleveland and Akron MSA.  Would have thought they'd track pretty closely.

Quote

Economists are forecasting a much bigger GDP drop of around 30% for the current April-June period.

 

Q1 included two months with no impact of shutdowns/quarantines.  April-June activity is likely to be suppressed even more.

The headline is at first sobering, but then when you think about it it isn't as bad as it sounds. There was never 100% of the adult population employed and in early 2020 it was at about 64%. A huge drop no doubt from 64 to 52% employed, but not surprising given all that has happened since January.
