America's Massive Economic Bust
This courtesy of Sherrie Mathieson
I canâ€™t even wrap my mind around this: GDP growth just went from +6.9
percent last quarter to - 1.4 percent this quarter. Thatâ€™s worse than
the swing from the last quarter of 2019 to the first quarter of 2020
(+1.9 percent to -5.1). Absolute disaster.
Two quarters of negative economic growth mean a recession. Watch for some very dirty tricks next quarter to push the numbers to at least show neutrality. They won't allow Biden to preside over an admitted recession.

Well, GDP is a nonsensical measure of economic performance, but I agree with your sentiment. I strongly suspect that the US economy is in even worse shape than those numbers would suggest.

They use GDP to calculate overall economic growth, but I agree with your point Bill. It's not the best indicator. And I wholeheartedly agree; this economy is in far worse shape than the numbers would indicate.
Shortages and inflation are proof of that.
