On this week’s podcast (recorded November 20, 2017), Tim takes a closer look at the somewhat unpleasant topic of Recession — including what causes them and when the next one might hit.

Quick hits:

  • There are three historic catalysts for a recession: The Federal Reserve, a bursting bubble, and an exogenous shock.
  • When will the next recession hit? The short answer? Not now.
  • Interest rates remain at reasonable levels, corporate revenues and earnings are growing, unemployment claims and the unemployment rate are at historic lows, and consumers and corporations have ample access to credit.
