The world was a better place (sartorially) when everyone I wanted to know was wearing a suit or a dress and everyone else had their first name embroidered on their shirt pockets.
They'd need the monogram wouldn't they? With everyone dressed the same there would be no other way to tell them apart.

Could someone maybe hip me to the problem with current standards of dress? Was there a time when they were better?

This man has an obvious drinking problem though.

Unemployment under 4%, S&P at or near all time high, not like any recession I can recall.

That's why I was confused. I thought it was two straight quarters at least of negative growth. Is he just not using the normal definition?

I looked it up after your post (because I thought the same thing), and in fact the NBER says
The NBER does not define a recession in terms of two consecutive quarters of decline in real GDP. Rather, a recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales.
which is what home boy says in his Bloomberg post. But still, I could see the case for calling 'top of the business cycle' but I can't see already calling recession with the leading economic indicators we have now. (specifically, while the last jobs report 'missed' it was still net jobs created.

I mean, eventually if you say 'Now We Are in a Recession' you're going to be right.

You're so right. I predicted the last 2 recessions at least 20 times. Feels good.

I'm still waiting for the recession I predicted in 2012.
