It’s not like the stock market means anything to the typical american, other than it is likely to be where they loose their retirement savings. But then, retirement savings should not be in the stock market or mutual funds.

Also, what is the outlook on the oil prices, which are inextricably attached to our economy and is the principle driver of inflation?

According to some “economists”, the economy is on the upswing and that means there should be lots of jobs available, right?

I wonder why you did not comment on currency risks.

Russia may very well do better this year – largely due to an upturn in commodity prices, an ever-closer alignment with China, continued if slow reform, and demand growth in her trading partners – but the release of a murderous thug from prison a few months before the end of his sentence will most certainly signify nothing whatsoever.

Whats not uncommon is the writers are always optimistic and predict US economy is going to do well. Self assuring and attempt to reinforce to others while displaying how other countries would fail to “catch up” and crumble at their own issues.

But years after years, crisis after another crisis cropped up. Lets be honest and bite the bullet. Every time I see the prediction no. 1 – US economy will remain strong … etc. based on their own simple reasoning. I lose my interest in the book or article.

Guess I am in the wrong site, US edition. ^^

Not only one superstition was invented, but many in layer by layer were invented and they made this political game actually the most complicated- one layer failed, another layer was piled upon the new failure. At last, all these layers of failure had made this game look very stupid.

As long as you know the people on the subject, you know the subject. If you have no idea about the people, you are always wrong in predictions. So neither is prediction hard, nor is it realizable. Prediction of anything is simply a prediction of the people on the subject. You have to know the people on the subject psychologically. The interest is in this.

The most relevant reason is, there is no geniuses in American political system for good decades. So people longing for political power are attracted to such a superstition and they name it the economics. They use it to fill the gap of genius. But still a superstition isn’t a real genius and the real world doesn’t accept it. It is more like communism wasn’t accepted by the real world in the result of disappearance of Soviet Union.

This ‘economics’ is indeed not a science. It is a superstition and a fraudulent theory.
