"I remain steadfast a recession is coming.
In fact I will now say it will be here within 6 months."

"Just to be clear, a recession is defined as 2 straight quarters of negative GDP growth. For it to be here within 6 months, Q4 of 06 and Q1 of 07 have to be a negative GDP growth quarters, correct?"

I would quibble here. Your definition would result in it being officially *recognized* in six months.

A recession could start in six months as Mish suggests (May 1, for example), but then not be "officially recognized" until Nov 1, 2007 after those two quarters have passed.
