Stocks to slide or a slow grind higher

As a long line of expert investors and fund managers are lining up to support a correction and/or a sell-off of stocks, I keep pondering: what if this time it is really different?

I have always laughed at experts in my 30 years of business, economics and finance writing, as well as my own investing, who have said: “This time it’s different.”

Of course, in reality, the causes and the courses of recoveries of economies and stock markets can be different, but in substance there is a pattern that pretty well sticks to a well-read script. And that script says all economies go into recession, eventually, and stock crashes do come along.
