The 2001 recession, which was very mild, took much longer to reach maximum job loss and full job recovery than previous recessions.
The 2007 recession was much more severe than all others in terms of job loss and took the same number of months, 25, to reach maximum job loss.
Questions:
Will post-2000 recessions take longer to reach maximum job loss and full recovery?
How long will it take for the 2007 recession to gain back the jobs lost (about 7 million at this point)?
