Is This Economic Slump Different?

Dimensional Vice President Weston Wellington offers perspective on the unpredictability of market movements, how the current market downturn compares to past bear markets, and the resilience markets have historically shown.

Its definetely been a wild couple of weeks for the world economy, but has it really been that bad?

How does this economic slump compare to other recession/depressions in history?

Yesterday CNN reported, that it was the Biggest one-day runup ever for the Dow Jones; which gives me food for thought for another post.

There is more here than meets the eye. It has become apparent that there are powerful forces here at play.
