Hosted by First Trust Advisors in cooperation with CFA Society VBA Netherlands:
The Antidote to Conventional Wisdom
the Great Recession and Panic of 2008, conventional wisdom has trumpeted a
near-endless stream of consternation and concern. Cries that "The
End is Nigh" have rung throughout the expansion. And whenever the
market dips towards correction territory, the wails and gnashing of teeth reach
a fever pitch. Thankfully, time has proven conventional wisdom wrong time
and again. Through it all, Brian Wesbury has been a voice of reason. An
antidote to conventional wisdom. The economy is (still) better than you
think...let him tell you why.
