New episode of Three Minute Money here.
Is the USA in a recession?
While the media has traditionally referred to a recession as 2 quarters of negative GDP the White House and NBER disagree that the recent 2 quarter decline is consistent with a recession. In this video we explore the technical definition of a recession and the primary indicators that the NBER uses to define a recession. We also explore why this feels like a recession even if it might not technically be a recession.
