The Big Picture in Business Week’s Blogspotting

BusinessWeek’s Blogspotting, which focuses on a different blog each edition, highlights The Big Picture this week.





For an overview of macroeconomic trends, leavened by the
pop-culture musings of market strategist Barry Ritholtz.

>>NOTABLE POST:   "Lately, I have been
noticing that many economists, analysts, and strategists have been having some
sly fun by naming their research after songs. My own contributions…have been
the past two commentaries: Bad Moon Arising and Been Down So Long (It Looks Like
Up to Me)…I also noticed [analyst] John Roque’s past two comments were titled
BRIC House and R-E-S-P-E-C-T. And Morgan Stanley asked: Will the Real Slim
Saving Rate Please Stand Up?"

Its funny thing that they picked that particular post; I happened to notice today that two new pieces were similarly musical – John Roque titled his comments “Why Do Fools Fall in Love?,” while Jeff Saut began his piece with this quote  “She’s so fine, there’s no tellin’ where the money went.”
from “Simply Irresistible,” by Robert Palmer.

Good timing . . .

    My favorite market influenced song right now is:

    Snoop Dogg – “Interest Rates Are Going to Cap the Value of my Crib for Shizzle.”

    Pretty raw stuff. LOL

    To paraphrase the Rolling Stones’ ‘Shattered’,
    “Don’t you know the prime rate’s going up, up, up, up UP!”
