"Macy's and Costco sound a warning about the economy"

>it feels like we are already there
Agreed, we just don't all know it yet. My debbie says we're going to bottom this summer/fall and start climbing out during holidays, barring any major geopolitical events/changes. I'm wondering if that timeframe might have a dash of wishful thinking, however.

Paywall, so maybe this is covered in the article.

The ex post facto explanation going around now is that an Ed-Med-third thing I donít remember economy is less sensitive to inflation. People generally donít skip their operations or cancel getting a degree because the price of milk went up. So we see less job loss than in a manufacturing economy where lose a job them tighten belts then factory orders go down and people lose factory jobs and so on im a downward spiral that is hard to reverse.

And everyone has already built Ed-Med inflation into their budgets. Of course, I think those two have to reach a limit at some point, but those are secular tends, not short-term economic cycles.
