A Framework That Provides Clarity

During periods of “low visibility,” confusion reigns: for every indication of one trend, there seems to be a countertrend. The key is to glean from the collective wisdom of reliable leading indicators a clear signal that the economy is headed for a turn.



Presentation slides: Jobs recovery real but more frequent recessions ahead

ECRI's Lakshman Achuthan shares his presentation notes and slides from early March 2010. Please CLICK HERE to download a PDF file of the slides and notes.

Topics covered include the current recovery and jobs market. The presentation shows how many jobless are being left behind by the recovery, even as the majority of jobless are seeing a clear decline in their unemployment rate.

Also discussed is the reasoning behind ECRI’s concern that there will be more frequent recessions in the coming decade – a development that seriously challenges prospects for a full recovery from the losses of recent years.
