Revisiting my predictions for Europe in 2011 (Don’t believe this forecast, December 23, 2010), I can today declare without any false modesty that I was right on the money. Not only has 2011 been very much like 2010, but it is also emerging that we will celebrate Christmas on December 25 this year – just as I forecast last December.
Having thus established myself as a trustworthy futurologist, it is time to dust off the crystal ball so I can give you an exclusive preview of 2012. I hope you are seated with your seatbelts fastened. It’s promising to be a bumpy ride.
