What Does the Word "Recession" Mean to You? (Answer for a Chance to Win $10!)
Winners update!! -- Congrats to the following winning submissions:
- What Recessions means to me... Submitted by Kristin (comment #16): "Well, I was laid off, and many, many of my friends have been too, or had their hours/salaries reduced. Sounds like a recession to me."
- @Karen604 "Recession means things take longer cooking at home, line drying clothes, combining shopping trips. But it's good in end"
Economists have it defined. News anchors provide ample commentary on what it is and how it affects us. But what about the "real" people living in today's economy? Do they "feel" the recession? What do they think a recession really is? Tell us for a chance to score some quick Amazon cash!
This one is easy. Just share your comments on what you think the word "recession" means. It can be your own personal experience, what you learned about it in college, or what you wish the media was really telling us about how it works (or in this case, doesn't work.) Do you have extra commentary on when it will end? Or are you just completely fed up with the use of the word altogether? We'd love to hear your thoughts for a chance to win!
