This week, Senior Vice President and Senior Policy Director for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget Marc Goldwein joins Abby in the classroom to explain economic recessions.

During the current global inflation crisis, Marc breaks down the technical definition of a recession and how economists determine when the country is experiencing one. Later, Marc offers some strategies for ordinary Americans to navigate a potential downturn.
