“Maverick” is finally set to be released to U.S. theaters on May 27! This development in the world of entertainment is the biggest indicator yet that the Coronavirus pandemic is finally over!

Tom Cruise is back in the cockpit and you’ll be back in an actual movie theater to see it. You’ll be munching popcorn. You’ll be slurping a refreshing beverage of your choice. Maybe you’ll eat a box of Jujubes! They’re gross, but even the vilest candy brings please to the palet when you’re lost in the land of cinematic wonder.

Tom Cruise looks as youthful as ever! Kelly McGillis looks old and very not thin, so she’s not in the movie.

But anyway, enjoy yourself! Really live it up. It might be the last movie you can afford for a while. Why?

Experts say the U.S. is headed for a recession

In an appearance on MSNBC Thursday, Andrew Ross Sorkin, financial columnist for The New York Times and a co-anchor of CNBC’s Squawk Box, says “the smart money” is predicting a recession by 2023.

“The smart money, if we think that they’re smart, still thinks there is going to be some form of a recession come 2023,” Sorkin told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The Federal Reserve is desperately attempting to squash inflation, but Seema Shah, chief global strategist with Principal Global Investors concurs with Sorkin that the risk of a double-dip recession is growing rapidly.

“A double-dip recession is a possibility if the Fed is too scared to really get inflation under control,” Shah says.
“The Fed needs to do something drastic. If they take their foot off the brake too quickly, then there is every chance of inflation taking off again. The early 1980s period becomes the obvious comparison,” she added.
