ECRI WLI Interpretation & Commentary

The recent steep fall in the ECRI WLI has been widely commented upon.

I've recently run across two items, an article and an interview, that I think are very notable with regard to interpreting the WLI.

The first is an article ( "Is ECRI Growth Rate Index Signaling A Double Dip?") that discusses the predictive history and interpretation of the WLI.  The second is a June 11 CNBC interview of ECRI's Lakshman Achuthan about the recent drop in the WLI and how he believes it should be interpreted.

Although I indicate the level of the ECRI WLI on a monthly basis ("Updates On Economic Indicators"), my only previous commentary on ECRI and the ECRI WLI can be found at this post of July 15, 2009.
