The U.S. will most likely enter a recession by the third quarter of the year, according to top economist David Rosenberg. “I don’t think we get out of this without a recession,” Rosenberg said, adding that an earnings recession is already underway. “What’s the stock market not seeing when you’re seeing declining earnings, not slowing earnings, and declining earnings estimates?” Dr. Nouriel Roubini, one of the first economists to predict the 2008 recession, has also warned that another financial crisis is on the horizon. “We’re facing the perfect storm: inflation, stagflation, recession, and a potential debt crisis,” Roubini said. In other news, experts are sounding the alarm over the U.S. labor participation rate, as millions of Americans still haven’t returned to work three years after the start of the pandemic. “A social and economic disaster,” economist Dr. Samuel Gregg said of the situation.

“I do believe that a stagflationary crisis is going to emerge this year,” Roubini said in an interview with Australia’s ABC on Thursday.

America’s low labor participation rate ‘a social and economic disaster,’ experts warn

By now it’s common knowledge that the U.S. saw an unprecedented drop in labor participation at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 as health concerns, lockdowns and stimulus payments caused tens of millions to abandon or forfeit their jobs.

But three years later, millions still haven’t returned – including many who quit in the middle of their prime working years – and some economists are sounding the alarm that so many capable, would-be earners remain out of the workforce.
