Biden Plays Orwell and Redefines “Recession”

by James Bovard

“‘All rulers in all ages have tried to impose a false view of the world upon their followers,’ George Orwell wrote in ‘1984.’ On Thursday, the federal government is expected to release statistics revealing that the economy contracted in the second quarter. Since this will be the second quarter in a row that the economy shrank, that fits the established definition of a recession. So true to Orwell, Team Biden is going to change the meaning of words.” (07/25/22)
