“What do you think the future holds for the economy and stock market?” When someone asks me this, my usual answer is, “I have no clue.”

My expertise is in personal financial planning and investing, not economics. Few investment advisors are formally trained economists. Most of us know just enough about economics to be dangerous.

But at a recent conference I had the chance to listen to someone who does have a clue. Bob Doll, senior portfolio manager at Nuveen Asset Management, often discusses investing and the economy on media outlets like Bloomberg TV.
