Ha. Yoshie would be proud of me. I've become something of a fixture
in English-language Iranian media. Several times now a Tehran-based
radio station has called me to comment on the U.S. economy, most
recently last night. And I just was booked for an appearance on Press
TV's English language service next Thursday. They've tried several
times in the past but the timing never worked out; this time it did.
Wonder if the Bush admin will put me on some sort of watch list now.
Update on my financial market contrarian indicator, in which
mainstream media attention to me is a sign of an impending bottom in
the markets. I've gotten lots of calls in recent days, especially
after the Bear Stearns maneuver. But nothing from any big outlets
yet. Closest to big is Wisconsin Public Radio (which, by the way,
seems like a pretty good outfit - I'm always impressed by their hosts
and callers) this morning. Yesterday there was morning radio in
Kingston, Jamaica, and my new pal in Tehran. But no major newspapers
or cable nets. Soooo....this probably still has a way to run.
