michigan sentiment nears 15-year low


barry ritholtz at big picture notes the sharp falloff in comsumer sentiment in the university of michigan survey by saying that the index is approaching a two-year low.

and that is true, as the index hit a lower low in the katrina aftermath.

but what he leaves out is, first, that the post-katrina low was the lowest reading since the last recession in 1990-1991 -- and second, that such dramatic falls are usually the final puzzle piece in the onset of recession.



it's here.
