We&s;re now in the&a;nbsp;second longest periods of expansion in modern U.S. history. The last recession ended in June 2009, and by July 2019 (assuming things remain steady) then we&s;d be in the longest period of expansion the U.S. has seen&a;nbsp;since the Second World War. That&s;s somewhat less impressive than it sounds because U.S. economic growth has generally been sluggish in recent years, still the absence of a recession is a good thing.
Unfortunately, time since the last recession isn&s;t a great indicator of the next one. Recessions do not come along like buses. We&s;ve seen gaps between recessions of anything between one and ten years. Though of course, the fact that we&s;re nudging up against the extreme high end of the time range is cause for concern. Here are several of the more important recessionary indicators and what they signal today about the U.S. economy.
