Cartoon: The company economist

Another Dilbert cartoon to complement yesterday’s:

What can I say – the life of a forecaster is packed with situation where you have to tell people what they don’t want to hear.

Then again – given the success of some forecasting, I wonder if a company economist saying this is a contrarian signal.  Is Dilbert’s company just about to experience a pick up in demand 🙂
