When Did the Recession End

Readers Talk Back: The Recession Is So Not Over!

A lot of you had something to say about the report released by the National Bureau of Economic Research that said the recession ended last June. Many of you felt very strongly about this and it was definitely reflected through your comments. Here's what readers had to say about this:

 

  • Apparently I don't understand what a recession is — 'cause as far as I can see, it is NOT over! —
  • It's over?! That's news to me . . . —
  • It is definitely over. Have you tried going to a grocery store or a shopping center lately? They are PACKED! People are throwing money around like it's going out of style. —
  • It definitely doesn't FEEL like it. —
  • That definition needs to be updated. No reason to have a definition that doesn't apply to the real world. Academic fail. — Anonymous
