Considering what this site is about may I remind everyone that an extended global recession will result in demand destruction and scale back consumption and CO2 emissions a zillion times more effectively than your most enlightened international climate accord.

Ibon : On the other hand, a recession prevents countries from shifting from oil intensive energy to renewable. After every recession, oil/gas prices are collapsing and weak economies look after cheap energy to rebuild their sick wallet. We are on the ondulating plateau since 2008, economy stands still with fake growth made of bitcoin/mercato/real estate/tech while standard of living are slowly going south. The ondulating plateau is a curse because we -even on peakoil- look around us and think at first sight that we are still in a business as usual position while the reality is that central banks are lending money quite close from 0% rates for 10 years in order to prevent the house of cards to collapse.

Lumping all tech together and calling it the problem or something negative is INSANE.

Where do efficiencies come from? Tech. Like LED light bulbs, which based on the amount of light produced per unit of power, are 7.5 times as efficient as standard incandescent bulbs. Or fuel injectors, made possible by computers. Or any of a host of technologies allowing for more efficient machines from furnaces to desalinization.

And your argument re pursuing low energy costs is to the point -- better efficiencies will make energy cheaper per unit of work done. Just look at the fleet average MPG standards over time, for example. The biggest thing holding BEV's back is the cost to do the job real world in a competitive way with ICE's, over the life of the car. The job is difficult enough, that I believe transitional tech. like HEV's will play a FAR bigger role before BEV's come anywhere near being dominant.

So let's not confuse real estate bubbles and technology. It's counter-productive.

Using you favorite forecasting metric from last week, the New York Fed Nowcast, the time has been pushed out to 2020 at the earliest which is consistent with the Conference Board LEI.

Never undertestime what historically low interest rates can do. I know I have underestimated them in the past. That’s why I think they can push off this recession until after the election. There’s numerous more 1/4 pt cuts coming.

Manufacturers are mired in their deepest slump since the Great Recession
American manufacturers are sliding deeper into recession. A closely watched gauge of factory activity released on Tuesday registered its weakest reading in more than 10 years, weighed down by slowing global growth, the Trump administration's trade war with China and an ongoing strike by thousands of General Motors workers.

The monthly survey by the Institute for Supply Management, an association of purchasing managers, showed that the sector — which accounts for roughly 12% of U.S. gross domestic product — in September shrank to its lowest level since since June 2009. Manufacturers are also adding fewer jobs.

A decline in international trade and demand for U.S. goods is the biggest factor denting manufacturers, according to ISM. One maker of electrical equipment and parts surveyed by the group also said that "tariffs have caused much confusion in the industry."

When you say "we", you should say the fast crash doomers, because the long slow crash doomers, the long term pessimists, the moderates, the corny's, etc. certainly don't keep saying "the end is nigh" frequently.

And given the track record of "the end is nigh folks", they shouldn't be saying it either, if they want to be taken seriously.

The Trump administration now control the economic narrative, the [CB] was just setup, optics are very important. China put out a story that tariffs would be removed in phases when each part of the deal is made. Trump administration reminds everyone that Trump has the authority do remove tariffs. The Fed does not like what Texas is doing, they seeing where it is all headed


The [DS] impeachment plan is a big failure. The leaked transcripts are now showing the opposite, but the plan was to keep this going. Evidence is now in favor of the patriots. The WB lawyer past is now starting to catch up with him. Many arrested for child pornography. Trump mentions that he caught the swamp, the message received, the swamp is going down.

Outcast, control is easy as pie if you control the CB, controlling the others.
DS lost control this year, hence the panic…..Brexit and the rest.

Re the US treasury yield curve going positive in mid October, moving more strongly positive in November, and US treasury interest rates rising meaningfully, that would seem to put a big dent in the "US recession is certain and soon" argument.

Crickets of course on that from the fast crash doomers, as if the narrative/news (credible or not) doesn't support in-our-face doom, then they don't want to talk about it.

If predicting the economy were easy, it would be fairly easy to outperform the stock market. In reality, it is VERY hard to do that meaningfully, over time.

I believe this speech is very important. I also think that this is partly why the establishment is attacking Barr & others in the Trump administration. A return to faith is so important and understanding how far the attacks on faith have gone is fundamental to healing our society & culture.. and our individual selves, in my opinion.

This thread is about signs a recession is imminent, re the OP, and the bulk of the discussion.

Nothing wrong with this post -- but it belongs somewhere else, unless I'm missing something.

To be fair, at least he doesn't cherry pick and distort things and have posting diarrhea to try and cover up his bad calls and mistakes, ad nauseam, like the cherry picking fast crash champions of this site.

But I'll agree when economic prognosticators say something like "the time has arrived", and then much later when it hasn't THEN claim they gave no specific time line, well, there goes their credibility re such predictions. Saying "we'll have a recession SOME DAY" isn't exactly an actionable prediction.

If you look at charts of the yield curve compared to recession starts, you notice that it is sometime after the yield curve goes positive again that the recession begins.
https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/T10Y3M

Be sure to expand the slider beneath the graph to go all the way to the left to see the entire history.

Recessions are shaded in gray. Notice that when the recession starts, the yield curve has already gone back positive for at least a few months, and often as much as a year.

Thus, if history repeats itself, we would probably not see a recession start until sometime next year.

If we do not get a recession until maybe sometime early in 2021 at the latest, I'll concede my thesis in this thread did not pan out.
