18. Judging by what's happening to businesses around me in a so-called "recession-proof" area
of the country, I'm agreeing with the OP. On the other hand, my brother's employer is now hiring engineers and line workers to keep up with demand. Of course, they make fuel assemblies for fighter jets. Maybe that's why the PTB want to invade Iran. WWIII might pull us out of this depression just like WWII did the last one.
