GMO 7-year asset class real return forecasts

I know, I know...forecasts are dumb, but I can't help it. I'm an investor and valuation research junkie. I find these things fascinating.

They're predicting one of the worst (bottom 10%) 7 year periods of all time for US equities? I am skeptical.

Looks like they haven't been too reliable in the past...

oh totally.  It's for infotainment purposes only.  Still, sometimes when you have one asset class going bananas it helps to see some mean reversion forecasts to remind you why you diversify internationally
