Krugman Sees U.S. Recession Ending Soon

Bloomberg -- The U.S. economy probably will emerge from the recession by September,

Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman said.


“I would not be surprised if the official end of the U.S. recession ends up being, in retrospect,

 dated sometime this summer,” he said in a lecture today at the London School of Economics.


 “Things seem to be getting worse more slowly. There’s some reason to think that we’re stabilizing.”

Krugman, a Princeton University economist, has warned recently that the U.S. government

hasn’t done enough to help the country’s economy recover.

Last month, at a conference in Abu Dhabi, he said the fiscal stimulus is

“only enough to mitigate the slump not induce recovery.”


Even with a recovery, “almost surely unemployment will keep rising for a long time and

there’s a lot of reason to think that the world economy is going to stay depressed for

an extended period,” Krugman said.
