The big news yesterday... those party animals at The National Bureau of Economic Research said that the recession ended in June 2009.
It's not over. You know why? Because the "recession special" sign is still up at Vanessa's Dumplings on 14th Street near Third Avenue....
The Vanessa's sign has been up since the fall of 2008... when it comes down, then we'll know the recession is really over.
I suggest that the fine folks at The National Bureau of Economic Research start eating some dumplings in the meantime.
