The Eurozone is in the midst of a strong recovery fueled by consumer spending. The EU reports that retail sales rebounded strongly in May, growing at the fastest pace on record and hitting a level only slightly lower than a year earlier. Recall that it was in May that European governments began to lift economic restrictions following successful suppression of the virus.

The result was that, in May, sales were 5.1% below a year earlier. The biggest increase was in textiles, clothing, and footwear with sales up 147% from April to May but still down 50.5% from a year earlier. Sales gains were also strong for furniture and electric goods (up 37.9% for the month, but down 14.3% from a year earlier) and computer equipment (up 26.8% for the month but down 26.6% from a year earlier).
