The Recession Report: Wait, What Recession?

recession-to-depression.jpg  Great Article this Morning on Cinco de Mayo. Looks like the tides may be turning for the economy. I’ve seen different attitudes in consumers & investors lately in the new home & commercial real estate world. Americans are impatient & support change. What goes up, must come down, and then go back up again. Since man has created currency, there have been fluctuations in wealth & prosperity. After seeing an enormous drop in new home prices in the last couple years, and the vacancy rate for business skyrocket, we have reached a plateau & are ready as a nation to start plowing ahead again. The media is catching on & I feel that this whole depression/ recession debauchery will be a thing of the past by summer of 2010. Wishful thinking regarding the timing? Maybe. As that I am up close &personal with the Commercial Real Estate world, as well as a hop skip and a jump away from the Residential Real Estate Community, there have been notable changes in activity and attitudes that haven’t gone unnoticed! Check out the article & link below!

But Bernanke said that the recovery will probably be slower than usual, and warned that the unemployment rate may stay high “for a time” as businesses remain cautious about new hiring. ]]>
