More Market Optimism/Pessimism

from the 'tis-the-season dept

I guess now is the time that everyone is getting their “optimistic/pessimistic” predictions for the tech market in. We’ve alrady covered a bunch of other articles on this topic, but now we have The Boston Globe which asked readers to chime in. They were mostly optimistic and include a bunch of predictions (none of which are surprising or daring). Wired talks to some more “professional” market prognosticators who predict things might have to get much worse before they start getting any better. Actually, if you’re in the predictions business, that’s not a bad stance to take. If things do get worse, you were right, and people think you’re smart. If things get better people get happy and forget that you said something different.
