    Some economists expect the U.S. economy to grow more slowly next year after a key Democratic lawmaker dealt a seemingly fatal blow to President Joe Biden’s $1.75 trillion spending plan, further clouding an outlook that was facing heightened risk from the rapid spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

    Goldman Sachs lowered its GDP growth forecast for 2022 as did Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, after U.S. Senator Joe Manchin said on Sunday he could not support Biden’s ambitious ”Build Back Better” proposal, which would expand the social safety net and tackle climate change.

    MapmyIndia to debut today

    CE Info Systems, widely known as MapmyIndia, will make its debut on the bourses on December 21. Experts largely feel the listing premium could be in the range of 50-80 percent over the issue price, though there could be some impact of current market volatility.

    The expected listing premium is largely attributed to the company's healthy financials with no debt burden, and stellar subscription to its initial public offering (IPO).

    MapmyIndia, which offers proprietary digital maps as a service (MaaS), software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS), received tremendous response from investors as the offer was subscribed 154.71 times during December 9-13 with support from all kind of investors.

    Non-institutional investors bought shares 424.69 times the portion set aside for them, the qualified institutional buyers’ portion was booked 196.36 times, while the reserved portion for retail investors was subscribed 15.20 times.
