    And

    I'm not knocking it. We're all hoping things will get a lot better and sooner rather than later. But even Roger Bootle, the head of the UK based Capital Economics, says no one can be certain what will happen. And he predicts real estate (in the UK at least) to go down even further next year. There's still no real consumer confidence and without that there will be no substantial recovery.

    Tell it to my father whose worried about his business not making any money in the next six months due to clients unable to pay up. Or tell it to the hundreds of thousands losing jobs each month. Tell it to my uncles all of whom are now out of work. Talk about the percentage of economic growth, I'll believe the economy is getting better when I start seeing the results first hand.

    Depends what you consider "upbeat" I guess. GDP growth and no official recession, sure. But most analysts expect very slow growth compared to what we normally get coming out of recessions.
