Conversations With Friends About the Economy

Friend: So should I invest in the stock market now?

Me: That’s a pretty loaded question.  You want me to predict where the stock market’s gonna be 6-12 months from now?

Friend: Yeah.

Me: So you want me to figure out what’s going to happen with the Eurozone, Greece, commodity prices, repatriation of corporate profits, the presidential election, taxes, real estate prices… you want me to predict all that and tell you where the economy is headed?

Friend: Yeah.

Me: How bout you finish your fucking beer and not ask me stupid questions.

Times when you shouldn't ask stupid questions.
