19666 "Recession Soon"

Here's Mark Carney talking about the likelihood of another recession, I make this thread because a couple of weeks ago I posted "recession soon" in another thread, but frankly that wasn't definitive enough. This thread is my declaration that the world's going to belly flop into economic oblivion very shortly, I'm sure of it.

Is it going to bring house prices down?

I wonder what the impact will be on the share prices of tech companies, especially in the USA. I'm very fond of a hypothesis that goes like this: CEOs get performance related pay for increasing share prices as a measure of their success and improvement of the company. Goodhart's law in full effect, they game it by making wasteful and costly decisions that nonetheless boost share prices so that they can get their own pay boost/not be replaced by shareholders. Companies do odd things like borrowing money (at historically low interest rates.) to buy back their own shares, which pushes up the price. Everyone's happy until something comes along and breaks the illusion. Maybe a recession will shake general confidence, maybe someone will come along and increase interest rates so that the debt taken on at low rates suddenly becomes a problem. If either is correct, it should be fun to watch from the sidelines.

I've always been fascinated by how Tories get away with recessions in their terms most of the time, but Labour are always fucked.

Most people are financially and economically illiterate. The Tories are well versed in the art of bullshit so people are prepared to be convinced by them; the economy should be run just like a bank account. Simple messages like "austerity is living within your means" are highly effective. Meanwhile, Labour may be no better or worse at economics but they give the impression of being far less competent and perception is what matters.

I used to look forward to the next recession. The last two big economic paradigm shifts were greatly influenced by downturns, and despite the fact the messiah who would lead us to the promised land something better did not appear on doomsday 2008 I've got to hold out hope he'll appear next time. Even as I know it's cargo-cult political economy, I stick to it on some level.
Increasingly I'm going to believe that even if we do replace the consensus of the last 40 years, it won't be better. Just different and probably sillier. But what else is there to do? If you give up hope of something better, really give up hope, you've had it.

The world's richest countries temporarily defied their trend of always growing increasingly richer? That's your idea of doomsday?
