The Dow is on track for its best week since 1938 – but that doesn’t mean it’s all blue skies ahead.
Last week’s unemployment claims, released Thursday morning, soared to an unprecedented number of 3.3 million – the highest in history. Second place isn’t even close, with the previous high sitting at just 695,000 in 1982.
Never in my lifetime could I have imagined an event like this. With businesses across the country shutting down, the economy is in danger of plunging into a full-blown recession – and there seems to be nothing we can do to stop it.
The word “recession” is scary. But it’s not the end of the world… not even close.
In fact, you could come out of it even stronger than you were before.
