    Whenever one feels happy, one could read or listen to Jim Grant to change that (-:). His outlook is very bearish.

    Mr. Grant's outlook has generally been somewhat pessimistic over the years.
    He currently contends that he is not being pessimistic.

    Ptak: "So, maybe turning back to portfolio strategy, if you will, given the fact that it sounds like you're a bit pessimistic on the 60/40."

    Grant: "I wouldn't say pessimistic. I'm trying to be clear sighted. People who are optimistic, because they're wrong are no more helpful than those of us who are pessimistic and wrong."
