How Rare is a Double Dip Recession?

edited June 2020 in Other Investing
I wanted to see how common has been to experience a double-dip recession historically to see if there is any precedent. Following the 2008 crisis, there were plenty of double-dip predictions that never came to pass and we eventually saw the longest expansion in history.


The biggest risk that could cause something like this to happen is probably not from the pandemic itself but from a policy mistake by the government.


  • No recession, FED will be there before you know it. This market recovery from March is not from fundamentals but FED pumping liquidity & TRILLIONS of borrowed money as stimulus.
