Not my favorite Bear — but give credit to Bloomberg for the timing of this interview:
David Tice, founder of the $1.2 billion Prudent Bear Fund in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, discusses the U.S. equity market. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index may drop below 800 as the economy slows, he said. The benchmark for U.S. stocks fell 2.3 percent today to 1,244.69, sending the index into its first so- called bear market since 2002.
On the market’s decline: "We sometimes we use the word `depression’ because a recession connotes really just an inventory adjustment, etc. What we’re talking about doesn’t have to be as bad as the Great Depression, but it’s a major long-term readjustment of the economy.”

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
