Goldman Sachs on recession fears - chill out!

Goldman Sachs Chief Economist Jan Hatzius comments on recession fears

In brief:

  • Says 'false signals' coming from stock market sell offs and credit markets
  • Economic indicators are showing little signs of imminent recession in the US, Europe or OECD
  • On the contrary, says current business cycle still positive
  • He says not to ignore the risks

A few graphs to accompany the argument:

Hatzius on the chance of recession by country, and with a time frame. Kudos for the time frame - its far too easy to say a recession is definitely coming ... I've been hearing it in Australia from the experts for the past quarter century!
