Wall Street Finally Muttering the Dreaded “R” Word


With another plunge in the market, another 12,000 layoffs at Countrywide, and a crappy employment report, Wall Street has finally begun acknowledging the possibility of a recession.  We continue to believe a recession is not just possible, but likely.  We aren’t expecting another dotcom bust, but a recession would depress valuations, hiring, revenue, financing flow, and company formation.  So, prepare for a hit to your top and bottom lines, and raise more money than you think you’ll ever need.
