The recession is over! Really??

June 1 2009 - the new groundhog day?

National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) has announced the Great Recession is over!  Apparently the experts have decided it began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009.  I don’t know what to say other than “what??”.

My recommendation is that everyone please send these people a new calendar for the holidays.  Apparently their calendars only go up to June 2009.
You can send them to:
c/o Graduate Center of the City University of New York
365 Fifth Avenue
Suite 5318
New York, NY 10016-4309
And if you are really inspired you can call them every day to let them know the date.  (212) 817-7955
