Good news: No Recession Likely in 2023

no recession in 2023

People are worried because some people say that the economy might not do well in 2023. But there are other people like Christopher Thornberg, PhD who have a more positive view.

Also, just because people aren’t feeling confident about the economy, doesn’t mean it’s going to have a bad time. It just means that people are reading and hearing a lot of negative news.
