Problem: Kidneys Don’t Clear

The quote of the day comes from Nicholas Colas of the broker-dealer firm ConvergEx Group on the use of Google autofill to uncover economic trends: “....can the U.S. economy be doing all that well if (I want to sell a) ‘Kidney’ is a common autofill?”

The real problem, as any certified economist will tell you, is that, while “kidney” trends well on the sell side, it doesn’t show up if you type “I want to buy”.  A shame, all those useful kidneys just sitting there, like a glut in the gut.
