Recent Market Volatility

Last Friday, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average hovered around minus 400 points for the day, I started working on a piece regarding the recent market volatility and the widespread perception that China, oil and a misguided Federal Reserve are leading us into a bear market and a recession. I had just gotten started when the following video from Brian Wesbury, Chief Economist at First Trust., arrived in my In Box. Brian not only addresses these issues, but makes some comparisons that I had not considered to the Penn Square Bank failure and the Japanese and Latin American troubles in the 1980’s.

Bottom line: Brian sees this as a buying opportunity.
