Europe in more trouble than I thought
Just when I thought it was safe to get my mind back to this continent, I received an e-mail from some organization which employs someone who seems to think that I am an economist capable of making predictions better than those of the magic 8 ball.
"Primary Research Group (www.PrimaryResearch.com) is conducting a survey of economists for their views on the prospects for recovery of European economies. "
OK so I've never heard of "Primary Research Group" and the future of Europe probably doesn't depend on their good judgment, but, frankly, I don't want to be part of any economy which contains people who are interested in my predictions about that economy.
I guess desperate times call for desperate measures, but I'm going to feel a whole lot better when my e-mail inbox gets back to its usual focuses on Nigerian scams and uhm male enhancement.
