"The economy depends as much on economists as the weather does on weather forecasters."Mr. Kauffmann's words seem somewhat more relevant given that much of North America now swelters under temperatures that most of us will have forgotten by the time the first big snow hits, all as the U.S. government wrestles with historic levels of debt and impending budget crisis.
Lots of prognostication on both fronts, none of it anywhere remotely accurate or useful.
Your turn: Look into your crystal ball. What do you see?
