Predictions for 2012

- Obama re-elected

- Gold reaches $1900 per ounce, silver $45

- Oil to $120 a barrel

- Futher civil unrest in Europe and America ("In Europe and America there's a growing feeling of hysteria" - Sting, circa 1985 )

- Assassination of a significant political or banking figure in Europe by far left elements is used as pretext for crackdown on protest movement and curtailment of remaining democratic rights

I'm a free range cage free egg, so I'm not sure what will hit the skillet.

Predicitions for 2012...
- Sarkozy is defeated by François Hollande and PS returns to power in France, creating a rupture in the "Merkozy" directory;
- Greece's elections are a big mess, with huge defeats for thw two biggest parties, but the only way to get stability (a central-bloc-coalition between PASOK and ND) is followed. Contestation and social discontent grows even more. There was the imminent danger of a military coup d'État right back in October, but it was hold. Not for very long, I believe. A coup d'État happens in the second semester of 2012, starting a wave of dangerous rebellions in neighbour european countries.
- Portuguese government "falls" due to the dissolution of the coalition by the action of smallest party in the agreement: PP;
- Labourist Brazilian Government directed by Dilma Rouseff won't hold as well to the end of 2012 - last week, her 7th Minister was fired, once again, due to corruption;
- The Euro will not survive to the end of the second semester because there will be no money to save Italy very soon and Spain as well and the "disease" will affect (it has already affected, in fact) France, Belgium, Spain and some countries of the eastern Europe like Hungary and Romania. Countries decide to return to their old currencies after the colapse of the Euro and the world economy gets psychotic with mutual threats and punishments. The EU eventually desintegrates itself;
- Merkel's government won't hold either and falls by the end of 2012. SPD + The Greens form a governmental coalition, but it'll be already too late to mend what's broken and to save Europe.
- Exponential growth of the price of raw materials, food and, specially cereals and food.


- U2 will not release any album and the whole cycle before an album gets released with all the inherent clichés will happen.

Yeah, don't we have a year to go?

I'm in agreement with Aygo's prediction. I see more unrest and dissatisfaction worldwide.

As for election 2012, whoever wins, riots will break out. The civil unrest in America will be closely linked to next year's election. And I think either side is capable of causing unrest because there are wackos on both ends of the political spectrum.

China will have a major slowdown, and given that it consumes 40%+ of the world's energy, oil, gas and coal prices will collapse. Oil will fall to $40 or below. Other commodities will also decrease significantly in price.

We will see a major central bank intervention in Europe, with the ECB ultimately taking the role of lender of last resort and printing hundreds of billions of Euros. It will have to get much worse in Europe for this to happen, but I think it will, because there doesn't seem to be a definitive solution to the deficit/debt issues.

If I'm right about one of these two predictions, I'll be really happy.

Even if the ECB starts to do what it should've done a while ago and done what it promised back in 2008 (when ordered the States to run into debt and save the bank), I don't know it'll work, it's too late to save some economies which are beyond damaged and that won't be able to grow and pay its debts on the next 10 years at least (like Portugal, Greece... but I fear these are not the only ones).

Obama will win re-election narrowly, while the Republicans hold the House and pick up about 6 in the Senate.

The Cubs will not win the World Series.

Here's three:

Bill Clinton and Herman Cain will partner in a new global initiative. Hillary and Gloria will not be involved.

Alan Grayson will lose any vestige of sanity.

Mormon will be the new gay.
