Recession?

Do you ever feel like you can't keep up with the news?

Well, we are here to help....Here is a great article on the current idea of a recession (not)

A funny thing happened to the economy on its way to recession: It's taken a detour.

That, at least, is the view of a growing number of economists -- including some who not long ago were saying a recession was all but inevitable. They note that stock and credit markets have steadily improved since the Federal Reserve intervened to keep Bear Stearns Cos. from bankruptcy in early March, while a series of economic reports have been stronger than expected.

CHANGING BAROMETER

  The News: Retail sales, excluding autos and parts, were surprisingly firm in April.
  The Upshot: Consumer spending and the U.S. economy continue to grow, suggesting recession is not a foregone conclusion.
  The Risks: It could be that the data will worsen in coming months, raising the risk of a shallow but lengthy recession.

Economists also cite swift policy responses, including a sharp reduction in interest rates by the Fed -- to 2% from 5.25% last September -- and the distribution of fiscal-stimulus checks to millions of Americans, as factors possibly easing the downturn.
