Have you noticed? Lead stories in the news are no longer about high unemployment, a bearish stock market, lack of consumer spending, or foreclosure numbers. I noticed it and thought, “So, this is what recovery feels like.” It has been a long time in the making.
This economic recovery has been atypical because the 2008 recession was not a typical recession. What made it unique is the entire country and all industries went into it at the same time. Plus, it did not discriminate; it affected all economic classes of people. While we all went in together, the recovery happened at different times for each industry and geographic area. For some of you, the recovery may still be coming.
