    But, we aren't there, yet. Yes, there will be another recession, there is always recessions. We just aren't there, yet.
    Interest rates have been rising slowly since Trump has been in office and that will slow down the economy slowly so to keep inflation in check.
    That's healthy for the market.

    I think we all just ignored it. There are no recession warning signs at this time. It will be another 2 years at least

    I wouldn’t guess at when, but we are already spending like we are trying to get out of a recession. It’s not sustainable.

    job killer, history knows this as does basic economics. I wish folks like you knew how business worked before exercising your 1st amendment right.

    a long overdue minimum wage hike would pour tens of billions of dollars into job-producing consumer demand,

    And then subtract all the demand from the people who would lose their minimum wage jobs.
    And subtract all the demand from employers who would go out of business.
