Goldman's O'Neill: Relax, Everything's Fine

Posted by Adam Sharp - Friday, May 13th, 2011

Goldman's head of asset management, Jim O'Neill, thinks investors should suck it up and "stop worrying so much" about black swans. From Bloomberg:

Jim O’Neill, chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, said investors should shed their pessimism and stop hoarding cash amid prospects for a global stock rally that could start in China.

The view that “the West is in trouble” is wrong when nations including Germany, Sweden, Australia and Canada are performing strongly, O’Neill said in an interview with Bloomberg Television in Hong Kong, recorded yesterday and broadcast today. Investors should “stop worrying so much,” said O’Neill, known for coining the BRIC acronym for Brazil, Russia, India and China.
