Jason Hartman takes a look at economic recoveries from past U.S. recessions. Beyond understanding the shape of an economic recovery, the details of the growth percentage and the term of growth can help us to understand where we are now. While some economic predictions can be made based on past information, the Coronavirus Pandemic does contribute to breaking pre-pandemic trends. Jason also discusses umbrella insurance policies and some flood insurance myths.
