So what will 2012 bring? On the specifics, I haven't the foggiest idea. I do hope that we can pull ourselves out of an asymmetrical economy. (The 1 percent keeps doing better at the expense of the 99 percent.) I'm fearful we have slipped into a lost decade like Japan.
With expectations high, perhaps this will be the year that we discover cold fusion. Perhaps as important to many of us, perhaps we will discover the perfect weight-reducing pill. A Fountain of Youth pill, would be nice as well.
Could this be the year we make contact with extraterrestrial life? How would that change things?
Ready or not, here comes 2012. May it be a good one for you!
