A Lone Wolf Cries, 'Inflation!'

Economist David Rosenberg likes to go against the grain. In 2005, when the housing market was booming, he was one of the first to say the bubble would burst. In 2006, when consumer prices were rising, he told investors to expect disinflation. In 2007, when the U.S. economy was still growing, he warned that a nasty recession was on the way.
