my USA predictions for the 2006 year of the dog
01) the USA led occupation will continue in Iraq and Afghanistan
atleast for one more year. The USA presence will increasingly
rely on locally trained military services and non-military
commerical/private security forces/services.
02) Over night bank interest rate (Fed Reserve Rates) will remain
stable/fixed for the first 2 or 3 quarters. The Feds are holding
down the overnight fed reserve interest rate based on a deal
they made with the federal government (President/congress)
to reduce federal spending(or else deal with higher interest
03) Energy prices will increase. Not much oil will be coming from
Iraq or Afghanistan. OPEC output will be steady but it won't be
significantly increased. Chinese demand for energy will put
pressure on global energy prices. Energy companies will
post record profits. However, the rise in overall energy cost will
put a general inflationary pressure on the economy.
04) An anemic general job market plus inflationary pressures
will weaken the overall national economy. Budgetry cuts
by the federal government will put more pressure
on state and local governments to trim cost or raise taxes
or some alternative method of revenue.
05) The economic recovery after Katrina will be weak and
there will continue to be finger pointing as to why.
06) The USA housing market will start to cool off.
07) Immigration laws and policies will becom even
08) Toyota will overtake GM to become the world's largest
motor vehicle manufacturer.
09) Microsoft's sale of Xbox will decline when Sony and
or Ninetindo newer game system are introduced, but
Microsoft will counter this bad news by announcing
that it will introduce its newest operating system
Vista earlier than scheduled.
10) Biotech and drug companies make an effort to
establish major medical research efforts and labs
in the far east asia.
