Barron’s used our Truthiness post from last week for their Market Watch section:
"Truthiness" Instead of Truth
Big Picture by Fusion IQ
March 24: Whether overstating job creation [or growth, or] understating inflation, a shocking amount of debate about the economic expansion has been primarily spin….[as] a parade of sycophants, despite knowing better, continued to cheer-lead punk data….First, they denied what was happening; then we got the whole "contained" thingie; then they blamed da Bears. Now they’ve unwittingly embraced Marx, and successfully pled for the central planners to rescue them from their own stupidity…Has "truthiness" replaced truth? [Will we] be saddled forever with these hallucinatory hacks?
