Charles Cirtwill from the Atlantic Institute of Market Studies says people’s expectations for the shipbuilding contract are overblown. As soon as the announcement was made, those expecting to cash in on the fallout had already spent the actual profits many times over in their imagination, he says. It’s not hard to see what he’s talking about, when everyone from beer brewers to light rail proponents to Cogswell demolitionists are saying “now is the time to build!” Cirtwill says the contract should just be one piece in a bigger pie.
