Our government has been denying the "recession" for months. I think we have been in a recession since October 2001. It seems like they are scared to use the word. But now, from what I have been reading in the research I have been doing, it seems as though a depression is a growing possibility. Although I am sure the word "depression" will never cross the lips of our current administration. Am I crazy to be thinking it is going to get A LOT worse in the not so distant future? That we could be facing a depression? I am posting this question/comment/thread starter here because on my other board they seem to be totally out of touch with reality.
