Default Are we entering a recession?

I got a seat in the back of my commute for once instead of having to ride in the jumpseat and I would like to know if this means we are facing an economic downturn.

absolutely. this is actually the gold standard, used by many in Wall Street and PhDs who teach at Harvard Business school

the empty seat you occupied, was still paid for, by a passenger who slept in late, but never mind that part

but yes, absolutely THE gold standard

Recession has been redefined by the current occupant of the WH.

Sadly, the most reliable indicator of an imminent recession, aka "The Stripper Index", has been destroyed by OnlyFans.

We're flying blind here folks.

I know it seems scary, but you just have to adjust the formula.
Signs of doom are now:
1) dramatic rise in new onlyfans creators
2) reduction in subscription costs

It will be ok. We’ll get through these trying times.
