This one's just for Vandelay Inds since there has been a lot about Venezuela/FARC in open source lately since the Colombians bombed that Ecuadorean camp (not that you'd know it from US newspapers).

I have to comment that the best political cartoons have very little writing and can give the message instantly. The ones that are multi paneled are a league below(IMO).

We use genetically engineered corn, so their governments wouldnt' take it anyway. But I agree that the corn in your gas thing is having some terrible consequences.

I don't care if we define it to a much easier threshold, but I wish we were consitent so we all had a basis for comparison when we spoke about it.

According to Wikipedia:

In the US, the judgment of the business-cycle dating committee of the National Bureau of Economic Research regarding the exact dating of recessions is generally accepted. The NBER has a more general framework for judging recessions:<blockquote> A recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales. A recession begins just after the economy reaches a peak of activity and ends as the economy reaches its trough.</blockquote>
The problem is that NBER tries to be so accurate that their announcements come years after the fact. Look at this page for example: http://www.nber.org/cycles.html

"The November 2001 trough was announced July 17, 2003."

Technically, as soon as they assign a peak, we're in a recession. Since we've already hit that peak, we're in a recession. We just don't know when it started. (My guess: sometime in the last 18 months).

I guess people think of the recession as the "negative" times: that is, the time when we're in the trough, so to speak. The NBER looks at it in the term of cycles, and an expansionary cycle starts while we may still be in a macroeconomic depression.

I think personal outlook is just as important as what the media / institutes / the government says. You don't need the BOR to tell you how sales are going in your area: you know. Same thing with the economy. I think this data is more useful for journalists, business people doing long-term planning, and internet wannabe eggheads discussing economic minutiae.
