A Consensus Among Economists: The Recession Is Over

August 12, 2009 at 11:33 am  ·  Category: Economics, Market Commentary, Sentiment Analysis


26 of 45 economists who responded to a WSJ survey question conducted over the last few days said the recession is already over.  Another 12 believe it will end this month (August) or next.  Another 6 believe it will end by the end of the year.  Only 1 believes it won’t end until 2010.  That really blows my mind: 44 of 45 economists responding to the survey said the recession is already over or will end this year.
