WORD: Goldilocks market
RELATED WORDS: Goldilocks planet, Goldilocks zone, Goldilocks problem, Goldilocks principle, Goldilocks economy.
EXAMPLE: ' The Goldilocks story is "just right" for scientists explaining their findings of potentially life-sustaining worlds beyond our own, and the allusion has proved to be handy in other fields where some sort of "Goldilocks principle" is necessary to navigate between two extremes . . .
' Outside of astronomy, Goldilocks pops up in engineering, political science and especially economics. In December 1966, The Wall Street Journal quoted a Johnson-administration official as saying, "We're getting very close to a Goldilocks economy right now—not too hot, not too cold, but just right." President Johnson's Council of Economic Advisers tried to fine-tune the economy, but critics mocked its "Goldilocks theory."
' Still, many in today's financial world seek a "Goldilocks market": not too bearish or bullish. Even if outer space has billions of just-right planets, here on Earth that magical balancing act can be difficult to pull off. '
