I got to sit down with my friend Barry Ritholtz and talk about the economy, QE3, housing, trickle down technology (iPhone 5) and cognitive dissonance. Barry is the CEO and Director of Equity Research at Fusion IQ, an online quantitative research firm. He is the author of Bailout Nation, a columnist at the Washington Post and a prolific generator of high quality economic insights (and other topics) on his heavily trafficked blog, The Big Picture.
Barry is hosting the Big Picture Conference on October 10th. With the terrific speaker list it promises to be a great event.
