What are the Prospects for US Recession? [A Voting and Opinion Poll]

Is Wall Street Driving Main Street?

By Staff Reporters

Join Our Mailing List 

Concern is high that the US economy may be close to or entering recession, yet the fundamentals lend little support to such a projection. There has been no decline in jobs, while corporate health is very strong.

So, the recession concerns appear to be driven more by the decline in stock prices than by economic developments.

IOW: Is Wall Street pessimism driving Main Street gloom?

    [Pimco’s El-Erian Says U.S. Economic Conditions Are Terrifying]

    Pimco’s Chief Executive Officer Mohamed A. El-Erian says U.S. economic conditions are “terrifying” given that the nation’s is coming out of recession.


    Double-dip anyone?

  2. Jim Rogers

    Jim rogers was just interviewed on Business Insider by Henry Blodget on May 2nd, 2012.

    He said that because of the increase in debt, the next economic downturn will be much worse. We had a recession in 2002, then 2008 and the next one cannot be far away and should probably occur in 2013 or 2014.

    Any thoughts?



  3. What, Me … Worry?

    It seems that in almost every conversation these days people worry about their investments and the markets [ie., the economy’s killing my investments … my portfolio’s down … the economy better turn around soon or my retirement will never happen, etc].

    There are many variations on this theme and you’ve probably been hearing it, too! Especially in the doctor’s lounge.

    So, it’s easy to worry about a recession.

  4. Bernstein Sees New U.S. Bull Surpassing 1982-1999 Market

    Did you know that former Merrill Lynch chief investment strategist Richard Bernstein believes that the U.S. equity markets are in the early stages of a bull market that could surpass the greatest bull market of his lifetime?

  5. Y-2013

    I believe that 2013 will be the Perfect Storm. For example, bonds will get creamed as interest rates rise, equities will be down and commodities should be go negative after doing well.

    Furthermore, the US dollar is weak and the Euro will get strong. Your thoughts?

  6. New Projection

    The CBO just opined that we face another decade of sub-par growth! Did I hear the R-word?



  7. Hamilton,

    Some more info, projected in a decade, from the CBO:

    Medicare = 1 $Trillion year
    Medicaid = doubles

    Next year = 1.4% growth rate
    Next year = 8% un-employment

    Poverty = up
    Incomes = down



  8. Rallying stocks yield 300,000 new US millionaires

    There are now nearly 9 million households whose net worth totals $1 million or more, up from 8.6 million in 2011 and just short of the 9.2 million record set in 2006.




  9. Your Call

    Dow Jones Industrial Average Index ($INDU):
    14,559.65 Up +111.90 +0.77%

    Good call Marcinko – NOT!



  10. Glass Stegall

    Glass Stegall was repealed in 1999 and in just 9 years we went into a depression, of which we are not coming out of. This law kept banksters at bay for over 60 years and was one of the tools which brought us out of the last great depression.



  11. A Recession Ahead?

    Over the last few days, a wave of selling pressure has washed over the market. Many technical indicators are now flashing red — suggesting a correction lies ahead.

    What do our readers think?

    [Bull Market, Though Still Cheap, Needs A Correction]

  13. Just in – Recession or not!

    Today, the Federal Reserve agreed to softly pare back its asset purchases by $10 billion, taking the first step in unwinding its controversial bond buying program.

  15. Optimism is soaring amongst the world’s wealthiest investors, according to two new surveys

    In the U.S., the number of millionaire households grew to 9.7 million in 2013, up from a post-crisis low of 6.7 million in 2007 and beating the previous pre-financial crisis record, according to the first of the two surveys, from Chicago-based market researcher the Spectrem Group.




  16. How to survive the next market drop?

    Stocks are overdue for a pullback.


    Here’s how to get ready for the next 10% correction.



  17. Eye on the 2017 Economy [Is a recession on the horizon?]

    The U.S. economy is enjoying one of the longest economic expansions in history, seven years and counting. The extraordinary duration—more than double the average length of an expansion (38 months)—could cast doubt on how much more room is left to run before the next recession.

    As the saying goes, “expansions don’t die of old age.” Recessions—defined as negative gross domestic product growth over two consecutive quarters—are more than just statistical regularities of a predetermined business cycle. They are brought about by a surprise catalyst that disturbs the status quo, such as excesses that can build up in pockets of the economy during an expansion.

    In some instances, an unknown shock could trigger the unwinding of such misallocations. OR, a new President [DJ. TRUMP]. This sudden retrenchment can ripple into the broader economy, affecting hiring and investment decisions.

    Barring a significant shock to the U.S. economy, some believe the odds of a recession in 2017 are low, but not trivial. While there are uncertainties related to the new presidential administration, the economic fundamentals of the United States remain solid.

    The service sector is in fairly strong shape, consumer confidence is high, and the unemployment rate is below 5%. With that said, there are three risks that will continue to be monitored: a “hard landing” of the Chinese economy, increased chances of a breakup of the euro zone, or the implementation of strong protectionist trade policies.
