Rcession Watch

Chris Farrell Sep 25, 2007

Do you think a recession is coming with the downturn in housing? Or are you in the camp that believes the worst is behind us?

Well, you can watch the betting on a recession at Intrade. It’s one of the many prediction markets created by this betting firm. It looks like there isn’t much activity, so I’m skeptical the “market” is giving reliable signals. But it’s still fun to check out.
