A kids' game : Recession

Jan 11, 2019 | Jeremy Goldfarb


Remember some of those old games we used to play as kids? Before Tablets, Xbox, Super Nintendo, and anything else that draws kids to the glowing rectangle (see my previous blog post on this one!)


Red light/Green light, a nursery school favorite. Person at the front calls out "green light" and people advance. They then call out "RED LIGHT" and you have to stop......get caught, and you're out. Make it to the end first, and you win and become the master light caller (or whatever it is).


Now, it's almost impossible to call a recession, but you can prepare for the possibility of one by following the indicators. They aren't foolproof, but they help, and it is always nice to be prepared. The chart headliner above illustrates some key indicators that we keep a close eye on. One flash of yellow, but otherwise, green across the board.......for now.
