Needs an agreed-upon standard to measure by; there's a lot of disagreement about what constitutes a recession, and you might have to wait 2-4 months if you want to know what the feds think counted.

~50% is much higher than the market thinks, right? If Manifold is accurate, people should be holding a lot more cash than they are!

@JacyAnthis I agree, although I personally find the resolution criteria too vague to justify participating

Is the question about whether it will be in a recession at the moment that 2023 ends, or whether it will enter a recession at any time between creation of the market and that date? If the former, then I suggest the "by" in the question should instead be "at."
