Taking the bait?

July 16, 2009

Carbon market in “rude health,” awaits U.S.

“It’s difficult to say things are heating up again right now as everyone is waiting with baited breath for the U.S. to pull the trigger for the next spurt of investment to take the market to the next level.”

Not to quibble, but the correct phrase is “bated breath” (not “baited”).

Good article otherwise.
