That's what a depression looks like but don't worry the MSM says the recession is over despite the fact there hasn't been a quarter of positive growth yet. It's also worth noting that there hasn't been positive growth even with all the money being pumped into the economy, so the real numbers are actually a lot worse than the 0.7% negitive growth reported last quarter. Government spending climbed 6.7% last quarter and because government spending is included in the US GDP the real economy (the sustainable part of the economy that doesn't rely on borrowed government money) was theoretically down significantly more than the 0.7% number suggests.
