"Anatole Kaletsky is failing to declare his interest"

"The journalist writes a Times economics column while holding a stake in a fund management company, says Richard Brooks

One of Britain's foremost economic commentators has been analysing and predicting the financial markets without declaring his interest in a company trading in those very subjects, The First Post can reveal.

Award-winning financial journalist Anatole Kaletsky writes a weekly economics column in the Times, in which for a long time he has taken a far more upbeat tone than almost every other commentator on the world's financial woes...

... What Kaletsky failed to mention in these and all his other weekly columns, as well as in several appearances as an economics pundit on TV programmes including the BBC's Newsnight, is that since 1999 he has been chief economist of a financial services company called GaveKal. "

Tosser.

Unfortunately David Smith of the same paper, who has been a poorer economic forecaster that Kaletsky (i.e. house prices will only go up), has no excuse - he's just incompetent.

So what? He is of no consequence.

It's not as if we don't know that Estate Egents are asked for their opinion on the housing market.

What is more galling is that in these times of financial crisis (brought in from America, obviously <_< _ ) that the people they turn to for solutions are the very people that caused the problems (the banks) and the very people who didn't have a clue that there would be a problem (the FSA, the Treasury and the BoE).

Of course that doesn't mean that those who did see it coming (Vince Cable for instance), necessarily have the right answer, but I would feel better with someone like him involved, becauuse to predict the outcome, you have to understand something of the nature of the problem.
