“Median Incomes Shrank Further After Recession” by Robert Pear (TIMES, 10/10/11)


     Economics is a complex subject that can be difficult  to understand.  Nevertheless, this “sobering new report” by Robert Pear left me disappointed.

     For one thing, I have always doubted the claim that the recession ended in June 2009.  For another, I rejected the notion of a “recovery” having  begun by that time because it was described as “jobless” and “anemic” by most economists.  An “anemic recovery” is NOT a recovery; therefore, it cannot be claimed that the recession ended in June 2009.

     American “attitudes toward the recovery” have soured because at some level of their consciousness people doubt the notion of a recovery.  Moreover, no evidence was offered in this article to support the claim that “the economy has been growing.”
