"... But can they find a way to call today’s Chart of The Day (US Industrial Production) slowing indefeasibly into a recession “transitory”? Or shall we agree to agree that this rate of change dropping to its lowest level (-1.2% year-over-year) since 2009 is called cyclical?

 

If we’re going to call everything cyclical “transitory”, then we’ll probably get to what most economic ideologues actually believe  that they can bend gravity – and that there is no economic cycle to concern yourself with anymore because they can smooth that too."
