  1. so whats the impact….when growth goes from 23% to 6% on market psyche? what happens to the MULTIPLE (p/e). i have a hunch, but let me look for some data.

    I don’t understand any of this. If prices are supposed to be a signal based on all available information, why would anyone guess on future prices when the future is chaotic and unknowable? Then, if analysts somehow, some way, divined what the future will hold, why would they make that prognosis public when they could make money with proprietary knowledge – especially if it goes against consensus? If this is a market-making prediction, then how reliable is it? It is not as if Goldman was above selling a product and shorting that product at the same time.

    And of course Goldman is working for the Opposition. But they are working for the Government too.
