Bull Moose

No End in Sight

It's official: the country has now been in recession since December of last year. Atrios has pointed out that this means that the current recession is already longer than each of the last two, which were each just eight months long.

I've posted quite a bit this year (though certainly not recently) about my feelings about the direction of the country's economy. Right now, I'm incredibly thankful for having a job that is for the moment not impacted by the current downturn. I just hope that this remains the case and that all my friends, family and loved ones will be able to get through what I still believe will be an ugly, protracted recession.
