WASHINGTON (AP) -- Discouraging economic data from around the globe have heightened fears that another recession is on the way.

Fresh evidence emerged Thursday that U.S. home sales and manufacturing are weakening. Signs also surfaced that European banks are increasingly burdened by the region's debt crisis and sputtering economy.

The rising anxiety ignited a huge sell-off in stocks that led many investors to seek the safety of U.S. Treasurys.


Am I the only person who didn't realize we were out of the last recession?

Technically, the numbers were showing growth.  Not much, for sure, but it was there.

I've seen the Morgan Stanley industrial numbers.

This is a "recession" in the same manner that WWII was a "spat".

Um.  The rate of change is actually pointing toward contraction.  The global growth has slowed significantly, and the US is already contracting.

Hm.  I guess this was where I heard about it.

Yeah, it was a year ago, which is why the subsequent downturn would be called "another" recession.

I have a feeling these are academic and technical terms with specific meaning that the public neither knows nor cares about.

So, we're still basically fucked and I should continue to prepare for the zombie appocalypse? :D

In all seriousness, I have not seen any improvement here in St. Louis, but then again this is Midwest hell so I thought we might be a bit insulated.

All that matters in the end is whether or not there are jobs available, and whether or not money spends.

The rest of it is all horseshit.

That always happens when recessions/depressions go global.  Sooner or later, world leaders are looking for ways to distract their people.

I've been thinking of ways I can hide my son once they reinstate the draft.

Can we hope that by joining now, when the shit does hit the fan they may have moved up enough in rank to avoid the front lines?

That doesn't work for enlisted men.  In addition, the rear ain't exactly safe, anymore.  You're actually better off in an infantry outfit, where at least you get decent training.
