My 2011 predictions: the wisdom of the crowd

I was about to do a blog called "Predictions for 2011". 

Top of my list was going to be: 

1.  Inflation will increase

2.  European countries will eventually discover that you can't borrow your way out of debt

3.  The internet will continue to disperse power and open up hierarchy in weird and wonderful ways

.... At which point I thought I should practice what I preach.  I've spent all year arguing the people are wiser than their political leaders and that the wisdom of the crowd is greater than that of the few.  So, why not crowd-source my forecasts for the year ahead? 

Over to you.  What do you think is likely to happen in the year ahead? 

The comment thread is yours (even if you might have to wait a short while for the moderator to approve your posts!) ....
