What happens to Americans with interest and inflation if a recession hits?

When the peak of the pandemic was happening, the economy suffered a recession.

Businesses closed and job loss what at an all time high.

When there are less jobs, there’s less money and less spending.

Right now the opposite is happening and there is a higher demand for product, driving up prices.

If demand is lowered businesses could suffer, leading to job loss all over again.

The Federal Reserve needs to find a balance to fix inflation without causing another recession.
