Recession. The dreaded word, “recession.” For those who have lost their job in one, it can feel like a depression. For those who kept their own job in one but saw their portfolios drop, or saw neighbors or loved ones lose their jobs, or experienced a decline in income or business revenue, it may not have had the existential punch that it did for others, but it generates unpleasant memories of unpleasant times.
There is a lot of talk about a recession right now, some of it imbecilic, some of it overtly political, and some of it, quite substantive and important. But if the Dividend Cafe exists to bring simplicity and honesty to topics that are often spoken of with too much complexity and/or abundant dishonesty, the task at hand is readily apparent.
And so we will look at recession reality in current times, when, what, and why, and unpack the investment implications on all of it. I will always do my best at the simplicity part (I know I miss the mark there sometimes). I will be unrelenting in the honesty part. But as far as the pleasant part of it all, well, let’s just say my focus is on the honesty part.
