    Hello,

    Normally macro economists are always doom and gloomers and seem to take pleasure in finding the reasons why any market (property, currency, equities) are bad and overvalued, however that being said i do believe that there is some value in some of what they are saying.

    The challenge is finding which ones you should listen to as listening to most of them you get the sense that the sky is going to fall.

    Which ones do you listen to or read and why?

    Interested in your thoughts?

    Regards,
    QS

    The screen you are reading.
    My personal favourite is Bill Evans at Westpac.

    In no small part because I like an economist who sticks by their predictions (he has for months with regards interest rates) and doesn't flinch at every data release.

    The trick is knowing who to ignore.

    @petewargent knows what's going on and does a wonderful job sharing, analysing and interpreting economic data.

    Also agree with @MarkB, Bill Evans has a pretty good track record.

    Bill Evans - Chief Economist at Westpac.

    He was one of the first to predict 2 rate cuts in 2015, while the others have only said it will go up.
