Recession is when your neighbor loses his job. Depression is when You lose your job. Recovery is when Obama loses his.

Anyone want to critique?


Still waiting on someone to critique my post

Only because I want to know if there is anything I need to edit.


Two successive quarters of a fall in GDP.

That is the official definition of a recession. On that basis the US has been in recession since 2000 with one year of growth in 2004, according to Shadow Stats:


"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

A recession occurs after participants in an economic system

withdraw support for the system after losing faith in the future, which causes further erosion in faith...

whereas 'booms' occur when excess credit and capital cause an excess of faith in the future, leading to a correction called a 'recession'.

Or something like that. I know it's something like that.
