Bond king Bill Gross irked the stock market bulls yesterday when he decided that it was uneconomical for stocks to appreciate at a greater pace than GDP.

Legendary finance professor and stock market guru Jeremy Siegel pointed out the flaws in Gross’s assumptions and declared, “There is nothing unecomic about it!”
