    More good economic news.

    This is the firm that predicted the housing market downturn for Goldman. They are top of the line market analysts.

    Of course Goldman used the information to defraud their customers, but that's neither here nor there...

    I for one will be mighty glad to see the value of my house go back up again by 8-10% next year.

    Paulson is a bunch of greedy bastards, but they are some of the best around.

    If these guys are betting this way, I'd put my money with them.

    Yeah, I see where you're going with this, but the Paulson/Goldman thing was a rip-off of Goldman clients, with Goldman advising their clients in the wrong direction, not his own.

    He's making this prediction to the public and his own clients.
