Obama: Recession started 7 years ago.

 

Well not so fast Senators Clinton and Obama and former President Clinton.

There has not been a recession either in 2007 or 2008 to date.

The U.S. economy may be slowing down, but the US economy has yet to have even one quarter of negative economic growth.

While Senator McCain may be challenged by economics, the above three lawyers would not know a recession if it bit them on their ass.

Nor do they have a clue as to what to do to prevent and avoid a recession.

Wealth is created in the private sector.

Governments redistribute wealth or income.

Governments do not create wealth.

More and more government expenditures, regulations, and higher taxes, are failed policies.

Stop scaring people.

Eat your own dog food.

Have a hot dog!

List of recessions in the United States

“…

Great Depression 1929–1939 &&&&&&&&&&&&&010.&&&&&010 years Stock markets crashed worldwide, and a banking collapse took place in the United States. This sparked a global downturn, including a second, more minor recession in the United States, the Recession of 1937. [18]
Recession of 1953 1953–1954 &&&&&&&&&&&&&&01.&&&&&01 year After a post-Korean War inflationary period, more funds were transferred into national security. The Federal Reserve changed fiscal policy to be more restrictive in 1952 due to fears of further inflation. [19][20]
Recession of 1957 1957–1958 &&&&&&&&&&&&&&01.&&&&&01 year Monetary policy was tightened during the two years preceding 1957, followed by an easing of policy at the end of 1957. The budget balance resulted in a change in budget surplus of 0.8% of GDP in 1957 to a budget deficit of 0.6% of GDP in 1958, and then to 2.6% of GDP in 1959. [21]
1973 oil crisis 1973–1975 &&&&&&&&&&&&&&02.&&&&&02 years A quadrupling of oil prices by OPEC coupled with high government spending due to the Vietnam War lead to stagflation in the United States. [22]
Early 1980s recession 1980–1982 &&&&&&&&&&&&&&02.&&&&&02 years The Iranian Revolution sharply increased the price of oil around the world in 1979, causing the 1979 energy crisis. This was caused by the new regime in power in Iran, which exported oil at inconsistent intervals and at a lower volume, forcing prices to go up. Tight monetary policy in the United States to control inflation lead to another recession. The changes were made largely because of inflation that was carried over from the previous decade due to the 1973 oil crisis and the 1979 energy crisis. [23][24]
Early 1990s recession 1990–1991 &&&&&&&&&&&&&&01.&&&&&01 year Industrial production and manufacturing-trade sales decreased in early 1991. [25]
Early 2000s recession 2001–2003 &&&&&&&&&&&&&&02.&&&&&02 years The collapse of the dot-com bubble, the September 11th attacks, and accounting scandals contributed to a relatively mild contraction in the North American economy. [26]

The NBER�s Recession Dating Procedure

http://www.nber.org/cycles/recessions.html

Is U.S. in Recession? Discussions Begin

“…The seven-member committee won’t be announcing a starting date for a recession, if one were to occur, until it can be said definitively that a recession has started, Mr. Hall said. Economic data are too volatile to make any judgments this early. “Our ability to forecast these things is extremely poor,” he said. “Lots and lots of people have talked about recessions when they didn’t occur.”

The 87-year-old NBER, a nonprofit group of 600 academic economists, has become the unofficial arbiter of when recessions begin and end. Its definition of a recession: “A significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales.” A simple rule of thumb is two straight quarters of declining GDP, but that is not necessary for the group to declare a recession.

Recession? Depression? What’s the difference?

“…Recession: The Newspaper Definition

The standard newspaper definition of a recession is a decline in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for two or more consecutive quarters.

This definition is unpopular with most economists for two main reasons. First, this definition does not take into consideration changes in other variables. For example this definition ignores any changes in the unemployment rate or consumer confidence. Second, by using quarterly data this definition makes it difficult to pinpoint when a recession begins or ends. This means that a recession that lasts ten months or less may go undetected.

Recession: The BCDC Definition

The Business Cycle Dating Committee at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) provides a better way to find out if there is a recession is taking place. This committee determines the amount of business activity in the economy by looking at things like employment, industrial production, real income and wholesale-retail sales. They define a recession as the time when business activity has reached its peak and starts to fall until the time when business activity bottoms out. When the business activity starts to rise again it is called an expansionary period. By this definition, the average recession lasts about a year. …”

Recession

“…In macroeconomics, a recession is a decline in a country’s real gross domestic product (GDP), or negative real economic growth, for two or more successive quarters of a year.

In the US, the judgment of the business-cycle dating committee of the National Bureau of Economic Research regarding the exact dating of recessions is generally accepted. The NBER has a more general framework for judging recessions:

A recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales. A recession begins just after the economy reaches a peak of activity and ends as the economy reaches its trough. Between trough and peak, the economy is in an expansion. Expansion is the normal state of the economy; most recessions are brief and they have been rare in recent decades  …”
