Humanity is facing the worst economic crisis since 1872 on record, while the main financial indices are reaching historic highs. Is the real economy detached from the financial markets? What does this imply?
By observing the relationship between the S&P 500 and the US GDP it is evident how the growth of the index exceeded the growth of the product, as well as the adjustments that took place in the dotcom crisis (2000) and the financial crisis of 2008.
The increase in the indexes does not reflect the dynamics of the economy as a whole. Technology and the internet are leading growth, while in the energy sector the change in its energy matrix and the expected transition in energy consumption and production are being addressed.
