If the over/under for the US real GDP was set at 1.8%, I'd take the under - but I'm a pessimist. I think there's a case to be made for the over, but not by much.
If anyone wants to make a bet in the comments or by e-mail, I'm game. I'm a chicken, though, so I won't be wagering anything of value more than, say, $20 with one reader only. (I'm only prepared to lose a Jackson; items of alternate value (blogposts, etc.), I'll listen.) Anyway, put your thoughts in the comments, and we'll look this time next year.
