Quotes

[07:34] - "Just a reminder to people that whatever the message you receive from the Federal Reserve, I would not take that as gospel by any means. They are all just human beings trying to interpret data." ~ Doug Stokes

[09:06] - "Even the people appointed to forecast are horrible at forecasting. There are billions of financial interactions daily. How do you forecast all of that? That's an exercise in futility." ~ Doug Stokes

[15:21] - "It's not good to talk about an economic slowdown. The positive is that if you say one shoe falls after the other, we're on the last shoe under the HOPE (Housing-Orders-Profits-Employment) framework. And so, you would expect a rise in unemployment, the last piece of the puzzle for this cycle. Then you start on to new." ~ Doug Stokes
