Comments on: Perilous predictions for 2011 http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2010/12/16/perilous-predictions-for-2011/ Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: rwmccoy http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2010/12/16/perilous-predictions-for-2011/comment-page-1/#comment-22574 Tue, 28 Dec 2010 05:36:38 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/global/?p=10171#comment-22574 I think the predictions by Saxo bank were more edgy. The above list looks safe and doesn’t include the less probable but more scary stuff — like a deflationary price collapse, or a Sino-Japanese naval clash etc.

On the flip side, 2011 may just disappoint for major trauma and crises.

My hunch is that none of the above will be a problem. It’s what’s not on the list in the gray or black swan category that will give the average earth man a real headache. It is definitely a time to be cautious, deliberate and watchful. The old adage ‘Fools rush in’ is going to be proven many times over and in some very big ways.

“What can be said with certainty is that the economic impact of Israeli action would be enormous initially, which means this risk can’t be ignored.”

Sure as hell your expected risks are those of the fat, comfortable, self-righteous elite, preferably U.S. perspective.

You really think WikiLeaks is the threat for our privacy? No NSA, internet censorship, the U.S. breaking every international law, corporate media, governments cracking down on freedom of speech, to name but one of the many freedoms that are in peril?

No, of course, you wouldn’t consider these. Street protests, that’s your fear.

Jeez!
