The Skeptical Optimist, meanwhile, sings the praises of forecaster Brian Wesbury. I've seen Wesbury at economics conferences, and he is a pretty optimistic guy. He's forecasting GDP growth for 2006 at 4%, well above the consensus forecast. I'm not sure I'm going up that high, but the data I see around the St. Cloud area and statewide are also pointing towards accelerating growth.
