Life on planet Geithner
"There is much more confidence now that we've got a sustained expansion. It's not a boom. It's not going to offer the prospect of a rapid decline in the unemployment rate.
"Economists think we're going to be growing at a rate of about 3-4 percent. What matters is what is the average distribution of forecasters... and the people who have been most concerned about low trend growth or slipping back in to recession seem to be more confident."
Only on planet Geithner is the recession over.
