Is the Economy Crashing? When Will the Real Estate and Stock Market Recover?

September 21, 2022

With the stock market in disarray, interest rates at record highs, and the pain of inflation, many Americans are wondering if the economy is in a recession. How can we tell if we’re in one? The country is technically in a recession when its GDP decreases for two consecutive quarters. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis' advanced estimate, GDP fell 1.6% in Q1 and 0.9% in Q2. Despite the overwhelming evidence, the National Bureau of Economic Research has not yet declared a recession. As the cost of living continues to rise, interest rates increase, and layoffs multiply. However, the job market and corporate earnings  numbers appear strong.


There has been a significant slowdown in the real estate market, income and spending are struggling to keep up with inflation, and layoffs have begun to increase. Is the United States in recession?
