Greenspan disputes US recession signs

But the former Fed chief said: "We seem to be getting some evidence of potential stabilisation in new home sales" - largely because the share of sales financed by subprime loans had already fallen to almost zero.

Also on the positive side, Mr Greenspan said: "The initial [unemployment] claims data are not signalling recession."

When the figures for this month comes out on the amount of jobs lost due to the credit woes I wonder where Mr. Green is going to be.
