    1st Annual Hedgeye Investing Summit

    The sharpest minds in investing discuss the latest market and economic developments and explain their investing implications.

John McCain has never been accused of being an economically intelligent man, and Paul Volcker never a dumb one. Volcker is speaking at a conference in Canada right now, issuing comments about the US financial system being "broken", and that US economic growth will slow to levels not seen since the Depression.

I don't disagree with this. Obama won't either. Expect this rhetoric to start running full steam ahead into the perpetually bullish Wall Street narrative. McCain better have his chin strap on – debating Warren Buffett and Paul Volcker on the economy won’t be a no contact sport.
