CORRECT! I know that is hard to understand for some of you.
You have to get it out of your head that "recession" means a really bad period for the economy. Slow growth that would last for decades would be worse than a shallow recession. 2001 was WAY worse than the situation we are currently in. It had economic headwinds that we do not have right now, yet, by definition we are in a recession now and we weren't then. Yes, inflation is bad now, but that is already beginning to turn. We currently have more Americans working than ever before in our history...generating revenue. The recession we are in, while real, is a result of artificial growth from 2021 when we were coming out of the worst of the pandemic.
I didn't make up that definition either.
