Okay, now that everybody has gotten the April Fool’s jokes out of their systems, let’s get back down to business. We’re back this week with a full week of great posts! For baseball fans, the wait is over! Opening Day is Thursday and the grind of the regular season begins.
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
‘Economists Seek Recession Clues in Yield Curve’ – Jon Hilsenrath – The Wall Street Journal
- If you look back at the last handful of recessions in the US, an inverted yield curve has preceded pretty much all of them. But does that mean it’s a guarantee a recession is coming every time it inverts? This article discusses the things economists are debating regarding the yield curve.
‘What the Labor Market Means for the Stock Market’ – Ben Carlson – A Wealth of Common Sense
- Inflation is at levels we haven’t seen in decades, and not too many people are pleased about that. However, the labor market is ripping right now! Ben writes about what the strong labor market could mean for stocks.
‘The World is Piling on Debt as it Fights Inflation’ – Tom Fairless, Nicholas Bariyo, Ryan Dube – The Wall Street Journal
- Not only is inflation high here in the United States, but plenty of countries around the world are fighting inflation as well. This article discusses how the world at large is taking on more debt in an effort to fight inflation in certain areas.
‘Deep Roots’ – Morgan Housel – Collaborative Fund
- Hardly anything is as simple as it seems. Morgan writes about how asking “why” can help peel the layers back on how we get into predicaments throughout history. It’s never as easy as a one off cause and effect. The ripples of every event are felt for much longer than we realize.
