What does Gary Shilling think will happen to the US Stock Market?
* The economy won't start to recover until 2010 (versus the current consensus of now). It will recover because the government will be forced into a second stimulus. * The US consumer rules the world...and the US consumer is cutting back fast * Consumer spending will drop from 70% of GDP to 60% as consumers pay down debt and go on a saving spree. * Most recessions have a positive quarter or two of GDP, so if we get one, it won't mean anything. * The S&P will plunge 35% to 600 by the end of the year.  by newuser53468939 on Jul 16 2009 (7 months ago) Henry Blodget|Jan. 6, 2009, 3:58 ...
