Our sense is that a double-dip, while it can't be ruled out, is extremely unlikely. First of all, they don't happen that often and the last time one did happen a few decades ago, it was a conscious, policy decision by Paul Volcker to really squeeze inflation out of the system. Our sense is that we're in for a period of slow growth but not another recession. So, double-dip, not the most likely scenario.
