Fair enough Andy - although I'd guess you (like me) aren't in the market for such advice.
It may interest you to know that Standard & Poor had a revenue in excess of $697 million in the last quarter. That's quite a lot to charge people for duff advice.
Perhaps you should put that economic mastermind of yours to good use and try and persuade some of their clients your opinions are worth more. Good luck if you try, I suspect you'll need it.
