Yesterday I wrote about this subject with charts, of course, to try to account for how different this period is from what we had to deal with in the previous expansion.


Tomorrow is jobs Friday, and regardless of the number, I will raise the 6th recession red flag as I have enough data to do this now with the Leading Economic Index.

They produced the Leading Economic Index; I presented my Six Recession Red flag Model and my work on housing. Let’s say I had a lot of fun!
