Recession ended in June 2009

This is old news. Using the 4-week moving average of weekly unemployment claims, Jim Hamilton and Bob Gordon, among others, had predicted the end of recession more than a year ago. 

This just came as a late confirmation.  Nothing surprising here. Obviously, NBER this time did not put so much emphasis on employment, because the labor market is still terrible.
