What are the predictions for the year 2012?

Achieving a Business Focus on Sustainability, Energy, Performance and Technology

Dear Ecademists,

We're entering a mythical year of change, the Chinese Year of the Water Dragon, the international year of sustainable energy for all where energy efficiency challenges drive greater focus on sustainability.


There are some great projections for 2012 I like to share with you!


Will the year 2012 be a year of the great disruption or the big shift?

Will the Year of the Water Dragon be the Year of Power?


What do you think?

What are your predictions for the year 2012?

Please feel free to comment!

I wish you all a happy and successful New Year of the Chinese Water Dragon!

Best,

- Lucas

@ Steve What are the predictions for the year 2012?

Hi Steve This blog was a bit of fun looking forward and for sure neither Lucas nor myself are massaging our egos when we are detailing information re finance and what is going on out there. As for anything else it is just fun at the start of what is likely to be a year of great change. Am glad your night breathing and sleeping are working well and you are back on song. Cheers Alan

Boring "blogs" on Ecademy will probably continue for years to come and there will always be new people to "discover" the "magic of networking" to keep feeding themselves on their own egos, yawn.

Hi Lucas Thanks for your kind comments and I too hope Iran is solved without conflict. As for the Major Black Swan event I think the potentialfor another major natural disster could well be it as the tectonic plate on the planet are definately on the move in some areas of the south pacific and New Zealand area shows this. Cheers and have a good weekend. Alan

Good blog Lucas. I personally feel it is dangerous to make any predictions for the year ahead. Because I think things do have a habit of changing and surprising us Regards Gordon

As ever Lucas superb sources of information and many thanks for that. My predictions are: 1) The first serious arguments that could lead to water wars either in the Middle East or Far East or both will be seen. 2) The EURO will survive at the expense of Greece being cut loose from the EU 3) The $USD will be the strongest currency against the pound and Euro having gone below $1.45 USD$ to the Pound. 4) Obama will coast back into the White House. 5) Iran will not back down and there will be conflict there this year I am sad to say. 6) There will be one major black swan event that no one can predict that could well throw all predictions on the fire. Cheers Alan

Dear Lawrence, I hope that your scenario could be avoided but to be honest, risks are really important that there might be a conflict between Iran and the United States! Iran already provocted the United States in 1980 when "Iranian Students" hold prisoners all the diplomats of the US Embassy in Teheran. Later we had a war between Iran and Iraq! But once again, I hope the this conflict escalation could be avoided! Have a great and prosperous time! Best, Lucas
