Downfall Parody: ECRI Recession Call

Josh [1] showed me this last night, and its pretty hilarious.

I’m friendly with Lakshman [2], who is a terrific guy with a great track record.

ECRI runs an economic quant model that, prior to this cycle, has been dead on in warning of coming economic contractions. I suspect their model has been overrun by the impact of the Fed’s gusher of liquidity.

Still, whoever created this (“Becky Quick” on YouTube) understands economics, ECRI — and humor.
