big2 Consumer and Market Trends during Recession: Cross–Industry Research Report by TrendsSpotting.com

Quoting Bloomberg, (July 26 2009) “The worst U.S. recession in five decades probably eased in the second quarter (2009) as trade and government stimulus mitigated the damage from declines in housing, inventories and consumer and business spending”.
President Obama is similarly optimistic declaring that “the worst may be over in the economic crisis”.
