It’s Recession O’Clock

It looks like the US economy is on the brink of a recession. That’s according to the Federal Reserve’s Bank President, Jerome Powell, who spoke out recently about the tips banking crisis.

The Economics of Unhappiness

The banking crisis has had a ripple effect on the US economy. Powell warned that, “economic activity is weakening, and the risks are coming more towards the downside”.

Yikes! That’s not the news we wanted to hear. However, the Fed isn’t sitting on its hands. They are introducing measures to support and protect the markets.

Laughing in the Face of Economic Misery

Even in the face of economic difficulty, there’s no reason to lose your sense of humor. Consider this quote from Powell: “This is a time when we need to act, and we are acting”.

The optimism of his words has us all channelling our inner Leslie Knope in a ‘treat yo self’ manner. After all, we don’t just want to get through this, we want to get out of it better on the other side.
