A prediction of the future?

Quote:
The International Monetary Fund does not anticipate a double-dip recession for the United States, the head of the Fund's North American division said on Thursday.

"We don't see a double-dip recession under our baseline forecast. The baseline forecast is maintained for a continued, although somewhat subdued expansion by historical standards," Charles Kramer told Reuters Insider in an interview.

The IMF earlier released a statement saying that high foreclosure rates combined with high unemployment posed a risk of a "double dip" in housing.

The IMF also said Thursday the U.S. economic recovery has proved stronger than expected but is still vulnerable to high unemployment and a moribund housing market.

The IMF raised its U.S. growth forecast slightly to 3.3 percent for 2010 and 2.9 percent for 2011 but said unemployment would remain above 9 percent for both years and inflation would remain low.

In a statement released after its annual consultations with U.S. government authorities the IMF said recovery from recession had become well established due to a powerful fiscal and monetary policy response.

"The outlook has improved in tandem with recovery but remaining household and financial balance sheet weaknesses — along with elevated unemployment — are likely to continue to restrain private spending," the Fund said.

This is the "good" news.

I see. You really don't like anything that might be positive about the economy. Gotcha!

That is precisely the correct interpretation of what I said.

But it's not positive. It's prediction by the IMF. A prediction is not a positive event.

The prediction itself is positive. But I know you' wouldn't even like that. " Licking your chops " is the way you put it to me during the Bush years.

SDW " : Wait a minute! That's not a real event so it's not positive! " SDW now defines what a postive piece of news is.

But I understand. We wouldn't want to get too positive now would we?

Talk about lame logic. Jesus!

The deal is a lack of understanding of how one does not relate to the other.

I think he meant the source of the actual data, not the image itself.

Point The First: Generally OP posters who start threads provide a link (not hidden inside graphic) with their story, in this case, the cryptic chart/data you posted.

Point The Second: Whatever "Huffington" was, she definately is now a flaming liberal leftist...
