And here I was worried that I would have to wait until March to put this news item through my veridiction machine (my name for verifying predictions).
In December of last year, the Reuters news organization conducted a snap poll of thirteen economists and eleven of them predicted that the country of France would lose its triple-A credit rating within three months.
Just a shade over a month after Reuters released their results, the credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s took away France’s AAA rating.
Congratulations to those eleven economists for making a correct prediction.
As for that pair of economists who didn’t see France losing their sterling credit rating, they remind me of the 1 out of 5 dentists that doesn’t recommend Trident gum.
