In an effort to bring clarity in how and when these trends could change direction we analyzed more than 20 different cycles. They almost unanimously point to tectonic shifts in the months and years ahead … starting now.

What Is The Value Of Forecasts By Economists?

In this article, John Mauldin looks in a critical way to the positive economic forecasts of mainstream economists. He points to the very low statistical probability that we will not have a recession in the US for the rest of the decade. Presumably, we all agree with that.
