Call the next one the 'Despite' Recession

"Despite the strong economy..."

That's what we are hearing now and that's what we'll keep hearing as the recession heats up.

"Despite the strong economy, this figure is down from 84 percent at the peak of the last expansion, in 2007"

"Despite the strong economy, San Francisco finance jobs shrank from 45,716 in 2008 to 41,882 last year"

"The congressmen pointed a report from Giving USA which shows last year Americans have less to charity despite the strong economy."

"Republican officials say Trump is harnessing the anger of those who continue to feel left behind despite the strong economy,"

"Despite the strong economy, people are struggling to put food on the table, educate their children and get access to health care"

"Despite the strong economy, there are currently 7.3 million unfilled jobs in America, and a 50-year-low labor participation rate"

"Four in 10 Americans say they still struggle to pay their bills, despite the strong economy"

"Despite the strong economy, voters worry the economy and Republicans will harm their retirement security."

"despite the strong economy, St. Pierre, like many other American manufacturers, is struggling"

"small businesses are hiring less, despite the strong economy, partly because they are losing employees to bigger firms"

It's funny how our "strong economy" sure has a lot of asterisks around it.

Maybe, just maybe, it's not really all that strong?

Prepare yourselves, for "despite" what you may hear about the "strong economy", it's going to get worse.
