Technically the economy is in 'recovery'. And things are actually getting better, I see it in my business. But try telling that to the millions of people who have been out of work for a year or two or who have given up. So even though we're not double-dipping (real estate's continuing woes notwithstanding), yes, the economy still sucks in many ways. The earthquake in Japan and this Euro PIIG country (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece) Euro-currency threatening clusterfark doesn't help. Those are serious headwinds we didn't need in 2011.
Let's hope 2012 is better, because this does suck. But it really could have been far, far worse.
