"Hyperbolic suicide comments aside, it brings up an interesting irony that I have been noticing for a while: many of the most bearish economic forecasters describe themselves as optimists in their day-to-day lives. I consider myself extremely optimistic, but my views on the economy are dire at best. The fact that we optimists are so pessimistic about the economy should cause you to take notice and ask if maybe there is something to all this gloom and doom after all." (01/03/12)
