Publishing Pause

I am recovering from a rather inconvenient mishap. Not sure when I will be ready to put up some longer content.

I see that the latest release has Canada falling into a technical recession in the second quarter. Although a declaration of recession may have an effect on the rhetoric in the election, until there is some serious follow-through in construction, the effect of this weakness will probably be limited, under the assumption that the United States (Canada's major trading partner) avoids a recession. (Please note that it is very clear that this assumption can be questioned, but if we have a global recession, it seems like a safe forecast that Canada will have a deep recession.)


  1. Brian: I'm currently reading UGF. I can't recall the last I spent so little for such good work. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    1. Thanks, I am mainly OK now, I just need to rest. Good to hear that you are a happy customer!

(The reason presumably is that another URL handles comments, and so the user session needs to be preserved when redirected to that site. I don't like this, but this is not enough to make me switch my hosting service.)
