Then just don't listen to them, and do your own analysis of world-wide market trends. But keep my congressman out of it. For asking usually results in receiving when a politition is involved, and we've "received" enough from Washington.
These cheerleaders/doomsayers have one purpose in life and that's to manipulate markets in the direction of their biggest customers' equity positions (short/long). The damage in terms of their economic forecast is done. A "surprise" does nothing but excuse their ineptitude in sufficiently moving markets in the direction THEY wanted.
These people need to be legislated out of business as they are one of the major ills of Wall St and feed the corruption.
