White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Claims 2 Decling GDPs Is ‘Not the Definition’ of a Recession

A week before the BEA released the GDP data, the Biden administration published two blog posts that claim two GDP declines in a row does not constitute a recession. This sparked a heated debate across the country on social media as numerous analysts, economists, Dieses Modell wurde geschaffen, um Preisdumping zu vermeiden und den Markt mit Millionen von Token zu überfluten, and textbooks state the very opposite. The BEA’s report on Thursday fueled the debate further; as many individuals insisted that the U.S. economy is most definitely in a recession.

When the White House correspondent for Fox News Peter Doocy asked the White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre “If things are going so great, why are White House officials are redefining recession?” Jean-Pierre replied “We are not.” After the comment, Doocy stressed that a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth… How is that not redefining recession?” Jean-Pierre insisted “That’s not the definition.”

Even the economist and Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman der Öffentlichkeit gesagt to “ignore the two-quarter rule… We might have a recession, but we aren’t in one now.” Gemini exchange co-founder Cameron Winklevoss explained that he doesnt believe the Biden administration’s experts.

“According to the White House and the ‘experts’ that be, we’re not in recession,” Winklevoss schrieb am Donnerstag. “According to the numbers (two consecutive quarters of declining GDP), we’re in a recession. I trust the numbers because the numbers don’t lie, people do.”
