Economy seen avoiding double dip as U.S. data can’t get much worse

Bloomberg (or, considering the topic, maybe that should be Doomberg)

The U.S. economy is so bad that the chance of avoiding a double dip back into recession may actually be pretty good.

The sectors of the economy that traditionally drive it into recession are already so depressed it’s difficult to see them getting a lot worse,

I’m sorry … I’m confused. What state is the economy *now* if it can’t get *worse*?
