John Mauldin is pretty much in the perm-bear camp, from what I have seen. Like John Hussman, he exudes wisdom. But in 2003 and again in 2009 he (like Hussman) still thought the markets were over-valued and likely to fall further. Which they might have, of course; but if you are going to trust somebody's subjective judgement, you ought to check how it has worked out over time. I doubt there has been a moment in the last twenty years when he has been genuinely enthusiastic about the stock market overall as place for people to put there money.

Of course, his business, apart from giving advice, is to sell specialized investment products to "qualified" investors; qualified meaning rich, not necessarily knowledgeable.
