Financial Survival Network, Released on 8/1/22
Summary: When is a recession not a recession? This seems to be our current positions as people try to redefine what a recession is, and John Rubino discusses this with me in this episode. A recession has always been two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth—which we’ve been seeing. The government is reluctant to call our current circumstance a recession, and people are being accused of spreading misinformation. Deeper analyses show that we are not where the government says we are economically, and we must consider many pieces of data to assess our current situation. Tune in to hear more of John’s perspective.
