With the depletion of the world’s economy, will the world push itself to the recession. As per Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell statement, We may be in a recession from April to June due to the region’ financial status. Also magazine Harvard businesses review depicts it clearly.

Recession is an instability or significant decline in the economy for some period of time. At that time people lose jobs, economic crises happen, the stock market falls down, and to the worst, a country’s/ whole world’s GDP touches the ground.

Yes, the recession is a bad phase but people with positivity and practical minds use such problematic situations with their innovative solutions. Starting a business in such a period is not a risky and new one. Let me shoot out some examples, 

  • Burger King and Sports Illustrated magazine both started in the recession of 1954.
  • Trader Joe’s opened its doors in 1958.

  • Microsoft Corp. in 1975–when unemployment was 8.5%.
  • The ubiquitous MTV started up in 1981, on a shoestring budget and a risky idea.
  • Then, there’s Revlon Cosmetics. Founded in 1932 during the Great Depression, one product helped launch the company into a multimillion-dollar corporation less than a decade later: Nail Polish.
