Recession’s been done for a year: start traveling!

The recession’s over … haven’t you heard? So, why aren’t you traveling yet?

The National Bureau of Economic Research put the end of the recession at June 2009, though it obviously took the group a long time to come to this conclusion. So, if they average vacationer wasn’t able to figure it out as quickly as a group of econ nerds, forgiveness is easy. After all, most people (including me) measure recessions based on our own households – and much less from a macro perspective.

Now that the recession is officially more than a year in the past, it’s time to book those tickets!
