HUGE $GS CALL: Financial Crisis Ends in 2013

“Goldman’s Jan Hatzius is out with an excellent note that essentially calls for the economic crisis to end in 2013.

The title of the note is The US Economy in 2013-2016: Moving Over the Hump, and the gist is that 2013 will be the last year of sub-trend growth.

What’s important to understand is that this isn’t just based on some vague optimism or a foggy notion of “getting through a current rough patch,” but rather a financial balances model that has put Hatzius at the forefront of Wall Street economists in understanding this economic period.
