Once again the world economy has proved the naysayers wrong and there's been a "real rebound" so far this year, Barclays CEO Robert Diamond told CNBC Wednesday.
"One of the lessons weve learned in the last couple of years is every time its doom and gloom ... the economy is far more resilient," he said. "We see China at 8 percent to 9 percent growth, and reduction in unemployment [cnbc explains] in the U.S. So weve seen a real rebound."
That even extends to Europe, which was stabilized by the European Central Bank's [cnbc explains] second liquidity injection. President Mario Draghi "has made an impact," Diamond said. "Many of us underestimated the impact" of the long-term refining operations, or LTRO.
In addition, the feared economic collapse of Germany did not happen, he said, and the governments in Portugal, Ireland and Italy are more focused on austerity.
"Virtually every piece of data we've seen has been better than expected," Diamond said.

All the data I look at appears to be pimped!
Couldn’t have said it better. Reminds me of back in late 2006 -2007 when the stock market was hovering near 15,000 and there was nothing to support it except pimped data by the pimping experts. Then in early 2008, the market corrected for the pimping and did a pimp correction.
