More Good News: No recession in sight!

Economic growth in Q1 is better than forecast!

Please note the headline said "GROWTH" which means we are at least six months away from a recession--if one ever materializes. I'm sure everyone here will be very pleased w/ the news! Right bear?

I love to hear about job growth. But if the jobs are all government, who pays their salary?

A recession is 6 consecutive months of economic downturn. We're not in a recession- period. But, that fact seems to flee from the minds of most here who claim to be economists. I won't argue the fact the economy has slowed- it has. But that hardly qualifies as a recession.

Yes, but I think it will be the last rate cut for the foreseeable future.

Job growth is job growth. I don't much care where it comes from. We all pay for private sector jobs too when we buy the products. And they all pay taxes!
