It’s the time of year where pundits and professional forecasters pull out their crystal balls and offer their prognostications for the new year.
I’ve never been keen about forecasting. Even though we offer views of what might happen, it usually falls in the realm of applying well established patterns to new fact sets (as in the latest chapter of “Obama will sell out to the banks yet again.”) and thus falls short of what I consider to be an act of divination.
I thought readers might have fun sharing what they thought were the best and worst predictions for 2011, as well any sightings of non-predictions (as in so certain to happen or otherwise blindingly obvious as to not merit the label “prediction”). Please be sure to give the source.
