WSJ Econoblog: Reasons to Pout?

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On January 6, 2006 @ 10:00 am In Economy,Markets,Media | Comments Disabled

Yesterday, Brian Wesbury and I did the full econoblog thang for the WSJ [1].

You may recall Brian penned the "Pouting Pundits of Pessimism [2]" piece for the Journal’s Op-Ed page (discussed previously here [3]).

It was a lot of fun; Brian’s a good guy — he’s a lot more Bullish than I, and think’s the economy is hunky dory [4] –  but at least he’s a realist when it comes to inflation.

The whole discussion is on line in their public section here [1]; I think we lay out both sides of the debate fairly well.

Special thanks to Calculated Risk [5] for the chart [6]!
