Mr. Model / Aggregate Spread

Mr. Model is the name of NoSpinFORECAST’s economic forecasting tool that provides a look a year ahead. Formulated by Dr. Dieli in 1988, this economic model is based on facts, not conjecture, thus “no spin.” This model has accurately predicted the last 9 recessions. The data from this model is found in the Aggregate Spread charts that are part of NoSpinFORECAST’s reports.
