"There is no question at this stage that the momentum of this economy, leaving out the oil price issue, leaving out the Euro problems that have emerged, and very specifically leaving out the budget problems, this economy is really beginning to pick up momentum. The fascinating issue for forecasters is how do you factor in all of the negatives."

- The King Report, March 8, 2011, quoting from former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan's "Guest Host" appearance on CNBC (also known as The Comedy Channel), March 9, 2011
