None of these indicate a recession. Hasn't GDP been forecast to come in at 2.2%? Hardly recession territory. Your post must be tongue in cheek?

Perhaps people don't like Martini anymore...

______________________________________________________________________

i just opened one of my emails - - i got this (and they have not visited HPC as i am aware)

Subject: FW: YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2006 WHEN...

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of

four.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family

is that they

don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You go home after a long day at work and still answer the

phone in a

business manner.

7. You make phone calls from home and accidentally dial "9" to

get an

outside line.

8. You've sat at the same desk for four years and worked for

three

different companies.

10. You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o'clock news.

11. Your boss doesn't have the ability to do your job.

12 You pull up in your own driveway and use your mobile phone to

see if

anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

13. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom

of the

screen.

14. Leaving the house without your mobile phone, which you

didn't have the

first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause

for panic and you turn

around to go and get it.

15. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your

coffee.

16. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :)

17. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

18. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to

forward this

message.

19. You are too busy to notice there was no number 9 on this

list.

20. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a

number 9 on

this list.

AND NOW YOU ARE LAUGHING AT YOURSELF.

Go on, forward this to your friends! you know you want to!

I think you have a point. I wouldn't be surprised if Spangles start shedding jobs too.

WHAT MIGHT CAUSE A RECESSION?

Recessions have a variety of causes and a wide range of symptoms.

Some causes are domestic in origin, stemming from policy mistakes on behalf of the economic authorities. For example, the central bank might allow the money supply to grow too slowly and keep interest rates above the level needed to maintain a steady rate of growth. Higher interest rates have the effect of dampening down spending by both households and businesses and can lead to plant closures and job losses.

External shocks can also bring about recession. For example in 1973-74 the large jump in world oil prices caused a sharp rise in cost push inflation and an acceleration in wages. Falling real purchasing power of consumers and a deflationary fiscal and monetary policy from the government sent the economy into reverse.

THE COSTS OF RECESSION

One of the ways of measuring the economic cost of a recession is the cumulative loss of national output.

SOME CHARACTERISTICS OF A RECESSION

*Declining demand for output leading to higher levels of spare productive capacity

*Contracting employment / rising unemployment as firms lay-off workers to control their costs

*A sharp fall in business confidence & profits

*A decrease in fixed capital investment spending because there is insufficient demand to justify new capital projects

*De-stocking and heavy price discounting - this leads to lower inflation

*Reduced inflationary pressure in the labour market as unemployment rises

*Falling demand for imports

*Increased government borrowing
