Well its September 2009, the Dow Jones is easily inching closer to 10000, and the economy is closely rebuilding itself. Many analysts believe that the recession is close to being over and that the economy is slowly rebuilding and inching towards expansion. In my opinion, I have had a job for the past 2 years consecutively and I never felt the deep threads of the recession but I believe that it is progressively getting better. How about you? Are you ready to invest in the stock market? Buy that fancy house? Go shopping on Black Friday with no regrets? Is it really over? Or close?
