Ritholtz: Markets Don't Care about Deficits

Barry Ritholtz of FusionIQ and The Big Picture blog says that markets don’t “really care at all about deficits”, something that is a “great misunderstanding”. Ritholtz tells Bloomberg that while they have long-term negatives, deficits provide fuel that drives economic activity and stock prices. He also says institutional investors are remaining on the sidelines despite the market’s recent turnaround.
