What if I told you that the average length of recessions has been cut in half in the post-WWII era from what it was before, and that the expansion periods between recessions have more than doubled?

My colleague Michael Batnick looked at the data on recessions and stock prices and you’ll be surprised by some of his findings.

I send you there now:
