That's not a very good way of looking at it. You were placed in a situation similar to other countries were the economy was in the shitter, you have recovered the best.

Haha, this reminds of an Ana Faris line in that Seth Rogen movie where he plays the mall cop.

"You can polish a turd but in the end it's still a piece of shit."

That quote about winning the Special Olympics applies here, too.  Roll Eyes

So nr. 1 in economic recovery is shit?

There is no pleasing you, huh?

well you were in a recession and had to recover, so citing recovery as if it's a failure by partaking in it shows how much of a retard you are. It's relative, for example if all countries were handed a piece of shit and the US ended up with the best piece of shit then it is an accomplishment. You are having difficulty perhaps because you see recovery in comparison to a boom, which was not the case so recovery was the only option.

It's also not even accurate. Canada has had the best recovery of the lot.

True, we were not hit as hard as everyone else, but when it comes to recovery, we are #1

Well it started here didn't it?   So its natural we would be the first to start to recover as well?  The apex of the housing bubble was in Stockton CA. And Stockton housing market guy bottom about 18 months ago and has been very slowly rising ever since.  First to get hit, first to start the recovery.  Also,  we have had some quantitative easing and a trillion worth of stimulus spending,  while the other countries seem to be buying the bullet and moving towards austerity.
