S&P affirms U.S. sovereign ratings

RTTNews reports that S&P Global Ratings affirmed the sovereign ratings of the U.S. at 'AA+' with 'stable' outlook.

S&P maintained the ratings citing its strong institutions, diversified and resilient economy, coupled with monetary policy flexibility, and unique status as the issuer of the world's leading reserve currency.

However, S&P observed the ratings were constrained by high general government debt and fiscal deficits, both of which worsened last year following the economic shock caused by the pandemic.

Despite large projected fiscal deficits in the near term, the agency expects the government to introduce countervailing measures to begin addressing longer-term fiscal challenges.

S&P sees rapid economic growth this year and next as the pandemic recedes and the economy benefits from unprecedented fiscal and monetary stimulus.
