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.

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.

But Aresen is in America.

So I think I figured out why everything's getting flipped upside down.

What’s crazy is the 2 year usually inverts before the 3 month. The other way around has never happened before.

I did not know that.

I think we uninverted intraday. So it's not the strong "recession next year" signal everyone thought. Even so, the inversion is a symptom not the cause, and all the stuff that flattened the curve to begin with is still there.

Given that Trump has (at least temporarily) backed down from his Chinese-tariff threat, has there been any sign that China will reverse its new ban on buying US agricultural products? If Chinese buyers remain off-limits to American food sellers, I suspect it'll take longer than my likely remaining lifespan for the US economy to recover from THAT setback.

Meanwhile, WeWork is going public, and arguing that even though they lose money they should get a better valuation than their biggest rival (which actually makes a profit).

https://www.vox.com/recode/2019/8/14/20 ... -valuation

Apparently their argument is that they are a tech company. They call their number crunchers "data scientists" instead of "statisticians", so they should be valued like a tech company powered by ego and unicorn farts.

Uh. No, not really. Seems like it would work in a yo mamma format, but it isn’t very dank these days. See historical yield and time horizon relationships (longer bonds pay more than shorter bonds, which gets flipped in an inverted yield curve) are distorted by the large global demand for US treasuries- so instead of oh no recession worries pushing down the rates for long bonds, it’s just supply and demand - US debt doesn’t have to pay much to attract investors.

So yo momma is curved like inverted yield may suggest she’s in demand or may suggest she’s not long term desirable depending on who you ask.
