I have made it a point to attend Mark Zandi‘s economic forecast presentations over the years and had the opportunity to meet and speak with him at the Counselors of Real Estate meeting in Philadelphia a few months ago.  He graciously accepted my invitation to have a conversation with me (via Skype).  In 2009 Time magazine called him The Recession’s Hot Wonk.  He’s got a more optimistic outlook than consensus at the moment, but he describes his optimism in its proper context during our conversation.

Mark is also an author, including Financial Shock: Global Panic and Government Bailouts–How We Got Here and What Must Be Done to Fix It and his new book Paying the Price: The New Economic Mess We Have Created and How to Get Out of It.
