I was in the hospital a few years ago. I was "recovering" from an operation. That is technically true. But while I was in the hospital, hooked up to an IV, wearing a hospital gown, confined to bed, supervised by nurses, it would be a bad mistake to think I had "recovered." I was a lot closer to being incapacitated than being "healthy." Even after I got out of the hospital, it was some weeks before I was even marginally well, months till I was healthy.
And then it took me a lot of work and exercise to become fit and active again.
We are misled by the word "recovery," and of course the propagandists wish it that way. Our economy is a lot closer to the operating room than anything else. As long as the Fed keeps that IV drip of low interest rates going, as long as the economists and government are hovering over the economy, consider it to be in the hospital.
Which means closer to a relapse than health.
And when and if it gets out of the hospital, then the real work begins.
