- KINGSTON, NY - The first
decade of the 21st century is going out the way it came in with a bust
and a bang.
- The Great Recession is not over. There is no recovery.
It's a cover up. Expect another wave of terrorism. Possibly
of 9/11 magnitude.
- As well as challenges, also expect profitable and transformational
social, health, environmental, entertainment, cultural, business and consumer
trends to emerge in 2010.
- · The Crash of 2010: The Bailout Bubble is
about to burst. Be prepared for the onset of the Greatest Depression.
- · Depression Uplift: The pursuit of elegance
and affordable sophistication will raise spirits and profits.
- · Terrorism 2010: Years of war in Afghanistan
and Iraq and now Pakistan have intensified anti-American sentiment.
2010 will be the year of the lone-wolf, self-radicalized gunman.
- · Neo-Survivalism: A new breed of survivalist
is devising ingenious stratagems to beat the crumbling system. And, they're
not all heading for the hills with AK-47's and pork & beans.
- · Not Welcome Here: Fueled by fear and resentment,
a global anti-immigration trend will gather force and serve as a major
plank in building a new political party in the US.
- · TB or Not TB: With two-thirds of Americans
Too Big (TB) for their own good (and everyone else's), 2010 will mark the
outbreak of a "War on Fat," providing a ton of business opportunities.
- · Mothers of Invention: Taking off with the
speed of the Internet revolution, "Technology for the Poor" will
be a major trend in 2010, providing products and services for newly downscaled
Western consumers and impoverished consumers everywhere.
- · Not Made In China: A "Buy Local,"
"My Country First" protectionist backlash will deliver a big
"No" to unrestrained globalism and open solid niches for local
and domestic manufacturers.
- · The Next Big Thing: Just as the traditional
print media (newspapers/magazines) were scooped by Internet competition,
so too will new communication technologies herald the end of the TV networks
as we know them.
