Predicting the future-

A forward looking Time Capsule-

Not in Order and with different time horizons-

 

Since it is impossible to be perfectly precise in the future but this exercise is fun anyway.

1) The economy will slow down even more and the stock markets will go down further.

2) The US will slowly evolve over the next few decades into a Banana republic

3) The price of gold will go up and up and up

4) Oil will go to 60 in the next 4-9 (short term)  months and DOW <9000.

5) Another war will break out <2014

6) Governments will do another round of bailouts and money printing

7) The media will became more entertainment centric and phoney.

8) Im not sure if and when inflation will break out  and by how much- Im guessing 10%  inflation is possible by 2013 in the USA.

9) The US economy will recover but by 2015 to 2020 when we have inflation which will burn up the debt but at a huge cost.

10) And my Thriller in the future will do really well when it gets finished!!!

SUBJECT: MEDIA REACTION: U.S.-CHINA-JAPAN RELATIONS, U.S. POLICY,

CHINA’S GOLD RESERVES

 

1. U.S.-CHINA-JAPAN RELATIONS

 

“China and Japan should alleviate the U.S. influence in their

countries’ future development”

 

The official Communist Party international news publication Global

Times (Huanqiu Shibao)(04/28): “The Japanese Prime Minister will

visit China soon. This brings attention to the development of the

bilateral relationship between the two countries. The two countries

have both developed independently. China is gradually moving past

the ‘American conceptual restrictions’ that exist in the country,

especially after the results of the financial crisis. China’s

de-Americanization is gaining speed. Japan’s de- Japan’s

de-Americanization is speeding up as well. Japan is likely to

discard the U.S. completely and take steps closer to its East Asian

neighbor countries. The U.S. should not encourage Japan to develop

its military strength. U.S. interference will be an important factor

to overcome if China-Japan relations intend to develop maturely.

China should change their old thinking that U.S.-China relations are

more important than China-Japan relations. In fact, the significance

of the China-Japan relationship has also globalized, and is not

limited to Asia. China and Japan should seek more breakthroughs in

global cooperation. The two countries should contribute more in the

development of the world.”

 

2. U.S. POLICY

“Obamaism is not yet fully formed”

 

The China Radio International sponsored newspaper World News Journal

(Shijie Xinwenbao)(04/28): “Obama has just become president. During

his first 100 days in office, the concepts of Obamaism have

frequently appeared. Obamaism is characterized by the fact that the

Obama administration is aware that the U.S. cannot solve so many

international issues by itself. It is very different from Bush’s

cowboy diplomacy. However, Obamaism hasn’t fully formed and it is

facing challenges. People doubt that Obama will make any

breakthroughs in the core strategic interests and values of the U.S.

It is doubtful that he will give up the country’s long-term pursuit

of hegemony. Obama once stated that he would reshape the global

leadership of the U.S. This shows that the U.S. does not intend to

be an equal partner in international communications. The U.S. also

struggles with the variant nature of its policies. One can gain

insight from the U.S. Cuba policy. However, people can still be

hopeful.”

 

 

3. CHINA’S GOLD RESERVES

“China increases its gold reserves in order to kill two birds with

one stone”

 

The China Radio International sponsored newspaper World News Journal

(Shijie Xinwenbao)(04/28): “According to China’s National Foreign

Exchanges Administration China ‘s gold reserves have recently

increased. Currently, the majority of its gold reserves have been

located in the U.S. and European countries. The U.S. and Europe have

always suppressed the rising price of gold. They intend to weaken

gold’s function as an international reserve currency. They don’t

want to see other countries turning to gold reserves instead of the

U.S. dollar or Euro. Therefore, suppressing the price of gold is

very beneficial for the U.S. in maintaining the U.S. dollar’s role

as the international reserve currency. China’s increased gold

reserves will thus act as a model and lead other countries towards

reserving more gold. Large gold reserves are also beneficial in

promoting the internationalization of the RMB.”
