Quote of the Day

Amusing persective from longtime market observer Richard Russell:

Russell suspicion (of course, I could be wrong):

"Greenspan continues raising Fed Funds until the housing bubble is close (close
but not there yet) to toppling over. Greenspan leaves office in January. A month
later the stock market keels over. The housing market buckles and consumers cut
WAY back on their spending. A severe recession begins. Greenspan is gone, and
the word is, ‘Lordy, Lordy, if we only had Greenspan back, this wouldn’t be
happening . . . Greenspan, Greenspan, why did you forsake
us!’"

This is my favorite type of prediction: an offbeat amusing statement that simply rings true. Your mind’s eye can see the entire forecast unfold like a movie.
