About Michael

Michael has been a bankruptcy lawyer for 25 years. His undergraduate degree is in history with an emphasis in American Political History. Because of his background and occupation, he is an avid follower of economic and political news.

The name for this blog came from one of his college professors. Students would say something like “The recession is going to end by the third quarter and then the economy will start growing. ” When asked the basis for that proposition the response would be some form of “Somebody said so.” The professor’s response would be: “That’s just happy bullshit. It’s a ┬ápleasant sounding conclusion without any factual basis.” All too often, Michael hears economists and politicians and pundits pontificate on what is going to happen and can only think “That’s just happy bullshit.”

He will attempt to provide facts and data and let you draw your own conclusions.
