How Long Will a Recession Last?

We are probably in a recession already, but we can’t know for sure for another quarter or so. With inflation on the rise and interest-rate hikes making less money available, it will be some time before things grow again.

In a blog post, Fred Wilson estimates it will be another 18 months before we see any improvement. Key indicators will be a bottoming out of public stock valuations before rising again (e.g. 1980 recession took 3 years to see stocks rebound).

Elad Gil says, “The most likely scenario is 2023 will be a much tougher environment for startups than 2022” in Changing times (or, why is every layoff 10-15%?).
