I don’t think so. Personally, I could think of equally plausible reasons that we could get stronger aggregate demand growth or somewhat weaker aggregate demand growth over the next year. We highlighted one possibility in the Greenbook with regard to the weaker investment scenario. Another could be the housing forecast: Housing could turn out to be weaker than we’re forecasting. So, on the aggregate demand side, I’d give them equal weighting. With regard to the aggregate supply side, I suspect there, too, the weighting probably is equal. It’s a little harder for me to judge. I don’t know whether Bill wants to add something.
