You look at restaurant traffic. That was down. Eighty nine percent a year ago from pre penned democ. Now it's about half of those prepaid pandemic levels. Mta subway ridership. It is improving but it is still about half what it was pre pandemic hotel occupancy now at around sixty seven percent that compares to about forty percent a year ago so improvement there as well.

There was forty seven million square feet of empty office space in midtown as the first quarter and then if you look at rental rates they are down nine percent from a year ago a year ago only twelve percent of new york city workers were back in the office. Now it is twenty three percent and guys with the delta variant. We thought people would come back in right after labor day. Now we're looking at mid october. Maybe so until we get those office workers back until we know how many do come back. New york's recovery is still open to question

"For a wrap up of the day's news on All Things Considered and W. NYC it's politics within the walls from the take away towards Israel the know from others digital in framing this week you just heard from politico's Nancy cook about the mixed messages on the economy that the White House is sending let's impact this data Andreas might knows the ins and outs of economic policy she's an assistant professor of economics at Howard University and she has some insights about the health of the overall economy the R. word and what a deflated economy could mean for twenty twenty currently the unemployment rate numbers they look good we still have positive GDP growth going on and those are the two numbers that tells you if we're in a recession and as of right now those are tell us we're not in a recession however if we look forward some of the indicators that would indicate that a recession might be coming on those indicators are not good so when you say that will good professors Smyth what do you mean like what should we be looking at one we can look at things like consumer and business sentiment or confidence right so consumer spending and business investments or too large parts off GDP so if consumers are not feeling good about the economy currently then we might expect spending to go down in the future are seeing over the past few weeks consumer spending has taken a dip same with business sentiments the firms are not feeling too great about the future direction of the economy and so we're worried about business investments going forward as well so a lot of people don't even want to say the word recession it's the R. word given the fact that they're indicators that suggested it could happen and some that suggests that our economy is very healthy what's your best guess when it could happen if it will happen recessions can be self fulfilling prophecy is right so the more we expect one the more people are expecting one the more likely we are to actually get into a recession if the predictions that we use in the past come true then I'm gonna say fifty fifty just to be safe though as of right now we seem fine fifty fifty sounds like a coin toss to me that's that's what it is exactly if the coin lands on the wrong side who is likely to be hit the worse you probably can guess what I'm gonna say the people who are already worse off people barely have their heads above water and a recession is like a big wave coming at them and for those people who are just starting to see increases in in wage rates they're just going to fall back into the deep and their so those are going to be hurt the worst you know the population of the higher end of the income distribution.
