U.S. Economy: All The Leading Indicators That Are Forward Looking Are Flashing Recession

Jobs are a lagging indicator. They do not tell you where the economy is going, they tell you where it has been. All the leading indicators that are forward looking are flashing recession and once this recession hits and all employers realize that they were wrong in anticipating a non-existing recovery, they will be laying off a lot of workers that they should never have hired in the first place. Then the unemployment rate is going to skyrocket, then all the non-farm payrolls are going to disappear and by then we will be deep in the recession.
