In case you’ve been wondering…

The group that gets to decide these kinds of things, the National Bureau of Economic Research, announced today that we’re officially in a recession.

And have been since December of last year.

Just a quick translation. When they say ‘peak’ in economic activity? That means it’s all been downhill from there.
