Pundits Versus the Market

Karlgaard, Rich
January 2007
Forbes Asia;1/29/2007, Vol. 3 Issue 2, p14
This article discusses the reason for the divergence in the observations of commentators and investors about the direction of the U.S. and global economies as pointed out by Larry Summers, former U.S. Treasury secretary and current president of Harvard University. In 2006 investors were confident about the economy and yet commentators were anxious. The main reason for this divergense is that most commentators were liberals and are sour graping about the conservatives' achievement.
