Happy New Year everybody!
Another year has passed and it is time for us to make predictions for 2011.
No World War 3
World famous fortune teller Baba Vanga has said that the Third World War will begin as an ordinary war at the end of 2010 and last all the way up to 2014. As luck would have it North and South Korea have had several armed conflicts starting from November last year – so there is still a possibility for this prediction to come true.
Although 85% of Baba Vangas predictions have come true I am certain that World War 3 will not happen – at least not in 2011.
Wikileaks will get harassed but will still be around
The governments of the world who have something to hide will do everything they can to get Wikileaks banned. If possible they will look for a legitimate way but most likely this will fail – instead they will make the effort to discredit anyone who has something to do with the organization. More often than not this is done in secrecy in order to leave an impression that the governments had nothing to do with it.
Obama will keep losing credibility
A lot of the things that Obama promised while running for president have not come true. For instance the closing down of the Guantanamo Bay prison that is used to hold terror suspects was originally intended by January 22nd 2010 but it will most probably still be around on January 1st 2012.
Obama’s road of small failures will continue and as a result he will be losing credibility slowly but surely.
More trouble in the Euro zone
Although my home country Estonia was the 17th nation to join the Euro zone there are dark times ahead for the currency.
We will see at least one more European country getting into trouble that is eventually bailed out.
Despite of the trouble the Euro will still be around in 2012.
Oil prices over $120 per barrel
On January 1st 2010 the oil price is 91 dollars per barrel. It is my prediction that during 2011 the price will rise to over 120 dollars per barrel – an increase of more than 30%.
The main reasons area a weak dollar and an increased demand by developing countries.
The heavy winter storms witnessed in 2010 in Europe and USA will continue in the winter of 2011. This will raise several questions since people have not seen such severe storms for a long time. Are we in the beginning of a short ice age?
New Apple products
Apple will release their new iPad with a camera – this will give life to a boom of video calls using Skype and Apple’s own Facetime App.
The new iPhone 5 will also be released – nothing revolutionary there. In all aspects it will be slightly better than the iPhone 4 and very likely it will also be available in white. You can also hope for additional colors but they will probably debut with the iPhone 6 in 2012.
I will make a full income online
While I already make a hefty sum with my online ventures it is currently not enough to survive in luxury without a regular job. 2011 will most likely mark a year when I can start concentrating solely on my online businesses.
