QM012 - Economies Need Recessions

Hi All,

Today’s newsletter issue is about ups and downs in an economy. It’s natural to fret about the idea of recession. In a recession, people lose their jobs, stocks lose value, and general quality of life goes down. Nobody wants recession.

Still - recessions actually serve a purpose in a healthy economy and are necessary in order to keep an economy healthy into the future. Over the last decade or so, there has been a subtle change in the way we think about recessions. Instead of letting recessions happen, now we are in a world where the goal is to prevent recession at all costs.

So why are recessions good for an economy? And how has the shift in how we manage recession going to affect the economy moving forward?
