"Gross Domestic Product"

With second-quarter GDP data due out Thursday, the question of whether the economy is in recession will be on everyone’s mind.


The economy stands at least a fair a chance of hitting the rule-of-thumb recession definition of two consecutive quarters with negative GDP readings.


The last two recessions were in 2020 and 2008-2009, as annotated in the chart above.


Should inflation stay at high levels, that then will trigger the biggest recession catalyst of all, namely Federal Reserve interest rate hikes.


Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said “we just don’t have” conditions consistent with a recession.

"Student Loan Debt in USA"

According to the Federal Reserve, the level of outstanding student debt in the United States reached $1.75 trillion by the end of 2021.


As the chart shows, the student debt burden has more than tripled over the past 15 years, which is one of the reasons for the calls for student debt relief to grow louder and more frequent.


Student loans are the second largest category of household debt in the U.S., trailing housing debt by a wide margin.


Auto loans are the third largest category, currently standing at $1.3 trillion.
