I would also encourage readers to take a look at the following article in which David Levy — head of Levy Forecasting which is the only firm in the world that uses the Levy-Kalecki profit equation for forecasting purposes — predicts a recession in the US next year.

I am going to try to get in contact with David to find out more about this forecast as it could be a very big deal — both from a policy perspective and an investing perspective.
