The author reflects on the importance of patience in times of economic recovery in the U.S. He states that the nation is facing a long and slow recovery despite the declaration by the National Bureau of Economic Research that the recession has technically ended. He mentions a possible economic relapse and how consumers are saving and spending less. He adds that only when the gross domestic product (GDP) tops three percent that experts can finally say that the U.S. has recovered from the crisis.
