Anyone who pays enough attention to enough things can pretty easily predict the future. For example, about 90% of the US population predicted the TARP
money would never reach the middle class and they were right.
It all depends upon what kind of prediction you're looking for, general or personal.
I can predict with accuracy that the swine flu, A/H1N1, will hit a lot more people than most expect it will, with a lot more deaths. I can predict
that the economy will be shown to be far worse than Wall Street claims it is, and that proof will come by December, when the holiday sales figures are
in. That's an easy call: Wall Street keep forgetting that the almighty Consumer is also that damned pesky employee they just laid off.
I can also predict that next week some of the major news stories will involve flooding along the Mississippi with some levees either breaking or in
severe danger of doing so.
If you know enough about any given system, thing or person, you can easily predict future behavior. It really isn't all that difficult. Ask yourself:
can you predict the result if your best friend is caught fooling around by their spouse? Or what will happen if your boss finds you with your hand in
the till? or what your buddies will be doing next Friday night?
There's an awful lot of things you can predict if you just spend a little time thinking about them.
