“Experts have a half-glass full outlook for the economy while average Americans are far more pessimistic. Here’s why the consumer is probably right.”

CNNMoney.com posted a story the other day that does not bode well for the economic outlook.

By a 3 to 1 margin consumers expect the economy to deteriorate over the next six months.
