Survey result: Pessimistic economists

Just released, survey points to pessimism among majority of economists regarding near-term future.  Well, it is about time to recognize the fact.  There are a couple of possible explanations why it took  so long.  First, there is a certain lag in data collection and processing, and economists by nature  are wary of drawing premature conclusions.  Or that the majority surveyed now happened to be left-leaning economists.  In my experience, most free-marketers are more optimistic in general, while the left is dooms-day-coming.  I am afraid in that respect I do not conform :-).  // *
