Is Economy Really That Bad


The latest news on inflation and unemployment seem to be pointing to a gathering storm in the U.S. economy. A lot of readers are wondering: Just how bad is this downturn going to be?

Economic forecasters and weather forecasters have a few things in common. Since no one can see into the future, both kinds of forecasters look at the forces that have created and shaped storms in the past — and then look at current data to help guide their predictions. When you see a sharp drop in the barometer, it’s a pretty good bet there’s a storm coming.
So we’re not saying there won’t be a severe downturn; the point is that no one knows. It’s just too early to know how bad it will be. And it would have to get a whole lot worse to measure up to the biggest economic storms we’ve been through.

    I have discovered some essential things through your blog post post. One other subject I would like to convey is that there are various games available on the market designed particularly for preschool age youngsters. They contain pattern identification, colors, animals, and shapes. These normally focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This will keep little children engaged without having the experience like they are studying. Thanks
