To discuss the irrelevancy of one particular favorite economic question of current business punditry.
This column examines the question “Are we in a recession?” and points out that the question is: unanswerable until far too late; and almost always of no real use in decisionmaking in the real world.
Hopefully, shows in a humorous way why this obsession with the question of “recession or not” is not useful.
