    Out of context. I saw the comment in a news conference and it was obvious tongue in cheek where he actually was laughing at himself.

    Thought quoted 78's post. MY BAD. If you read it you can tell.

    78 ( who had incorrectly tried to correct me) initially quoted me and said there was no recession during Reagan (obviously not you)."

    You confused me talking about 78 saying there was no recession during Reagan.

    I obviously believed there was a recession during Reagan as I had already pointed out. Reagan did not stop Volcker from raising rates back up again at the beginning of his term. Smart move politically.

    This is what I was referring to about 78 saying no recession during Reagan. I know you did not say that TLB. You are a very respectful poster. Thought was responding to 78.

    FYI Volcker's ramping rates back up again during Reagan did coincide with a recession.

    I know why Reagan did not stop Volcker from ramping up rates again so as to fight inflation but to be fair that initial recession during Reagan is due to both Carter and Reagan's actions.
