Informative post Terrel. The sad part is that there are many CEO's out there just as "talented" as the aforementioned chief? economists, Beavis and Butthead, who are busy running the Country into the ground.
Soon, in addition to beans and ammo some rope and a few lightposts will come in handy too.
Do you suppose Lereah and Yun ever actually bother to look at economic data prior to speaking? I would hope they do, but to look at the relationship (or lack there of) between their comments and the market actions fails to provide any evidence to support that they do.
