I don't disagree that there are grounds for what he said, and it is well reasoned and thought out.

However, have you not seen similar reports about another recession (or at the very least sluggish growth) written by other economists in the least few months? Surely you have, being an econ major.

I don't believe or disbelieve what he said. Neither this, nor the negative reports have convinced me either way.

The Economist itself predicted as much in the "World in 2013" issue.
