Economic Activity and Our Recession Oppression
The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) officially announced in June that the U.S. economy is officially in a recession. The NBER committee determined that the peak in monthly economic activity occurred in February 2020. The peak marks the end of an expansion that began in June 2009. The expansion lasted 128 months, now the longest expansion in U.S. business cycles on record dating back to 1854.
