Just a reminder. According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the official scorekeeper on recessions, the present recovery has been in progress for more than 36 months. During the post-war period the average period from the trough of a recession to the peak of the next cycle has been 59 months.
That means that there is a very great likelihood that the economy will go into recession again during the next presidential term regardless of who is elected president. Given the economic woes in Europe, in China, the volatile situation in the Middle East, and the fragility of the present recovery, I strongly suspect that recession will be at least as severe as the last.
Have a nice day.
