So finally we hear that we’ve been in a recession for an entire year. As I recall, this entire past year, we’ve been told we might be in one, but now, all of a sudden, we’ve already been in one for the past four quarters.
Last night I read the New Yorker’s profile of Ben Bernanke, and while it certainly didn’t help me sleep, in some odd way it reassured me. We are still in the shock phase of this crisis. At some point, we’re going to learn how to live within it, and at some point past that, we’re going to learn how to dig our way out. One thing I am entirely certain of: We will continue to push our use of this medium to communicate and learn and make our way through. And I feel good about being part of that conversation.
