Anne Motsenbocker, president of the Dallas region of JPMorgan Chase Bank,Â spoke to a room full of business-types and made the above prediction. More precisely, she said she thinks it will be 2013 before the nationalÂ economy could be described as “robust.” Motsenbocker (try to type that quickly) made that statementÂ as speaker atÂ this morning’s CEO Netweavers Leadership Breakfast at the Park City Club. Being a hard-core investigative blogger, I of courseÂ immediately rushed back toÂ my officeÂ to askÂ the Online Magic 8 BallÂ ifÂ she is right. It told me to “Please ask again.” I asked again, and it said, “Signs point to yes.” So, there you have it.
UPDATE: I just asked the Magic 8 Ball the same question and this time it said “Maybe.” I’m starting to question the reliability of this thing.
