WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Monday added to a chorus of presidential officials downplaying concerns over a looming recession after the U.S. Treasury yield curve temporarily inverted last week for the first time in 12 years.

“Eventually there’ll be a recession but this inversion is not as reliable, in my view, as people think,” Ross said in an interview with Fox Business Network.
