The numbers from Wall Street seem to confirm what we already suspect - the economy is slowing.

As far as I can tell the growth of the economy is slowing. Am I correct that slow growth is still expansion and cannot be characterized as "recession"?

BTW: One of my favorite spin terms from the Reagan White House was "we are experiencing negative growth this quarter".
