Are we headed for a Recession?

One in three Americans expects a U.S. recession in the next year, and less than a quarter think home prices will rise, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.

Do you think we are headed in this direction?

Considering we will be knee deep in the process of electing a new President, this is probably correct. The economy generally goes downhill during this time due to all the uncertainty.

Short answer, yes. The housing boom accounted for % 42 of new job growth in the last 5 years. Those jobs were one of the major reasons we stayed out of a recession in 2002. Well, that and defense spending. Now that the housing market is in decline alot of those jobs have disappeared. That is why unemployment has risen in the last two months and it hasn't bottomed out yet

The canadian dollar was worth more than the US dollar in 1976 during the Ford years. It was around the time of the WIN Program. Remeber the fuel crisis.
