The new year is going to bring major suffering to the US economy and society. On the one hand, the Bank Panic of 2008, started in and by America, will continue to ravage the recessional economy. On the other hand, large swaths of the American demographic, who voted for Obama, are expecting miracles that the US government simply can not provide.
As industry after industry lines up for government handouts and large scale money printing to meet those demands escalates, the depressionary bought will, by mid year, turn into a raging inflationary bonfire. Savings will disappear over night. Add to this continued mass layoffs that will reach another 2 to 3 million people, and an unofficial unemployment rate of 15%+ (official US statistics are so doctored as to make them worthless), a series of wars that will continue to drain lives and treasure and the dashed hopes of tens of millions and the US is in for a very hot and horrid summer.
Unbelievably, Saakashvili will continue to cling to power through the first half of the year. Under Washington's prodding, in early spring, he will relaunch the war and than be removed in a coup by his former allies.

First.. this comes from a Russian newspaper that isnt much renown for guess what will happen in future.. they said already some things that were complete BS..
Second, the extent of guess that there is on that text is humorous.. i had a few laughs already..
I would believe more if they keep it more simple, and not went for detailed descriptions as the poland one.. That depends on too many factors thats impossible to guess
China is in for an era of major instability. The 100,000+ factories that closed in 2008 will be followed by as many in 2009. The Chinese domestic consumption market is just to small to suck up more than 20% of the production it presently has. China will be further weakened by the hyper inflating dollar. Friction will come between China and America in late summer, when it will become obvious to China that the US is hyper inflating its way out of the US debt that China holds, making its investments worthless. In response, China will nationalize all US factories on the main land.
This act will at once bankrupt dozens of US companies and further crash the already chronically ill American economy and it will force a trade war on the US that may force it to bring some production back in, once the equipment can be replaced.

Information?? This is not information! This is mere SPECULATION.. and bad one i might add..
David Icke has more credibility than this.. At least he has sources and what he does is sum 1+1..
and an unofficial unemployment rate of 15%

Yes I know it is from Russia and a little bit biased toward it, but it is still good to read such things and ponder the possibilities.
