It’s sort of a theme. Unfortunately, he got into a lot of flak a few years ago because of Excel error him and his colleague made, which made things sound FAR worse than they were and politicians continue to use to promote extreme debt reduction, even though they issued corrections for it.
He’s a strange creature really. He promotes a cash-less society yet also seems to hold cautious views of growth, for what comes up always comes down.
I don’t follow most of what he writes: I skimmed through this when I was catching up on what I missed, but most of my contact with him was long ago and he helped me realize I’m a contrarian in this stuff. (we wrote back and forth a bit).
I can’t honestly remember where his predictions of US economy for the 2020s is from or when, so unfortunately I can’t give you a straight answer.
