It is strange. I first heard one person say that double-dip recessions are very rare about a month ago, and now I read and hear it everywhere. Well, if we've have learned anything in the housing bubble is that rare events do occur more often than many think - black swan anyone! Back in 2005, realtors told us that home prices never fell and guess what, they fell. I'm not saying that we are or are not going to have a double-dip, but just because it is rare doesn't mean it won't happen!
