Le Dumbass In Suit, c'est vous

Here's a great line from the world of dismal science today:
"Economists see 20 percent chance of new recession in the next year -- Reuters poll."

So let's get this one straight, shall we? A whole bunch of people with an abysmal track record of predicting the future think that there's not going to be a recession in the next 12 months, but just in case there is a recession they're covering their overpaid fat asses and saying there's a chance of one, which will then give them the opportunity of saying "toldyaso" later. 

And we pay these people. 

And we pay reporters to report and do polls on what these people think. 

And we think they're stupid?
