Larry Kudlow Says No Recession

By February 15, 2008Economy

Slowing, but no recession.

While modest gains in retail sales and industrial production suggest temporarily slower growth for the U.S. economy, these indicators are not signaling recession. In particular, Friday’s 0.1 percent production increase — which comes to 2.4 percent at an annual rate over the past 3 months and 2.3 percent over the past 12 months — removes the recession scenario. It’s slow growth, but it’s growth nonetheless.

Much in the way of irresponsible politicking, though, Kudlow reports.
