“Feelings”

Sizing up how the average American voter feels about the economy for a room packed with Ph.D. economists is a tough job.

Charles Cook, editor and publisher of The Cook Political Report, took a shot Tuesday at the National Association for Business Economics policy conference in Washington.

“The recession ended, what five years ago?” he said. A murmur of “seven” rose from the crowd. (The recession ended in June 2009.) Mr. Cook continued with his point: “And you talk to most Americans and they think we’re still in recession.”

That´s because a depressed economy feels much like an economy in an unending recession!
