What do you know? The recession has ended.
The longest recession the country has endured since World War II officially ended in June 2009, Associated Press reported Monday.
The National Bureau of Economic Research, a panel of academic economists based in Cambridge, Mass., says the recession lasted 18 months, AP reported.
It started in December 2007 and ended in June 2009. That was the longest of any recession since World War II.
But unemployment in Georgia remains at 10 percent and is just a hair better nationally.
What do you make of this latest news? While the recession has ended for the academics, has it ended for you?
