I'm not even sure why I'm bothering to acknowledge yet another thread that is nothing more than a copy/paste of an article title and a link to it with no meaningful discussion brought to the table, but...
1. The article itself says this is probably not an indication of a recession.
2. A "recession" has a precise definition = a period of general economic decline, usually seen as a contraction in the GDP for six months (two consecutive quarters) or longer. We have not had two, let alone one, quarter of a contraction of the GDP. The GDP hasn't contracted since the first quarter of 2014...and there was only one quarter of contraction at that time.
Stop posting things just to sensationalize them when they have no basis in reality. Or at least understand the subject matter before you do.
