A CNN analyst from Moody’s Analytics has updated a previous prediction about a recession in 2020, kicking the prediction can a little farther down the road. How far? That’s anybody’s guess:
While recession in 2020 has become less likely, recession early in the next decade remains a serious threat, writes Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics, for @CNNBusiness Perspectives https://t.co/7WPv7peDjr

First of all, there seems to be a buried lede:
So… you're saying the economy is fantastic. Got it. https://t.co/e0iPt1nPcI

This is as close as CNN is going to get to acknowledging the current boom. https://t.co/Aaubfaml7G

CNN’s framing of that story seemed to be designed with 2020 Democrats in mind:
Right guys? https://t.co/ctM2GtOyLn

Could be true. Unfortunately the fake news media has bombarded us with stories of doom and gloom since Trump was elected that we won't heed any credible warnings.

In other words, keep hope alive, Democrats.

Zandi has been predicting a recession since before Trump was elected.
He’s been wrong for 4 years now. Eventually he’s gotta get one right, doesn’t he? https://t.co/zeATGG3WgW

So the prediction is pretty much this:
“I was wrong but I will eventually be right!”

Translation: chief economist got it wrong, but will keep repeating the same mistakes until he gets it right, eventually. https://t.co/bCUJwm7Jy4
