You forgot the steps that involve a lobotomy and gaining 100 pounds.

If the past is any indication, I think the chances are quite high because I'm now 100% in equities.

If this is coming at us, wouldn't a good strategy be to load up on international index funds now?

We're not the only ones with a housing bubble.

Personally, I don't know of a good way to play a possible recession other than options. I bought some more QQQQ puts today. I figure the market gets overexcited about a fed funds rate cut, and then it slowly dawns on them that the fed is cutting because we're in trouble....
