I sometimes feel like I’m not myself. If you knew me, you would know that I’m this guy who smiles all day long, who loves life and tries to live every minute to its fullest, who always sees the glass as half full, etc. But when I look at the economic outlook or discuss things with friends, I’m simply unable to see how things could not end in a disaster. Give me one reason to think that we will be back near full employment with decent growth in the near future and I’ll have 10 reasons why we won’t. It’s looking very bad.
