Bearish economist Gary Shilling is ... bearish, flatly predicting another recession in 2012 as housing inventories continue to drag. Not surprisingly, his favorite picks are Treasurys - the longer term the better. "I think they're going to 3%," he says of the 30 year, currently yielding 4.2%.

  • Shilling is late to the game. Gluskin Scheff economist David Rosenberg made the long Treasury call last Jan-Feb.

  • So we go into another recession and housing rolls over which would mean more bailouts, more stimulus, and more money printing. Our deficit balloons as tax revenues fall and government spending surges, and somehow treasuries rally? That makes no sense but could somehow actually happen. What a market this is!

  • Without the Fed buying up our Treasuries, we won't be seeing anything close to 3%. We'll probably see 5% before we see 4%.
