Great year end reading by Things that make you go hmmm.
Well what a year that was. It’s hard to believe that, after a tumultuous year like 2011, the stakes could have been
raised yet further in 2012, but raised they were.
So many momentous moves took place in the past twelve months it was hard to keep pace with ev- erything. Fortunately, way back in December 2011, I didn’t put together my own list of ‘Black Swan Possibilities For 2012’ that so many people choose to publish at the end of a year, so history will be unable to judge the success or failure of my own thoughts which I diligently kept to myself – after all, who in their right mind would want to listen to a list of potentially unexpected events that I predicted could possibly happen in 2012?
Predicting is, to use the vernacular, a mug’s game and, if you ever find yourself being foolish enough to share your thoughts about what MAY happen with others, then take the advice of Marc Faber:
“…when you make a prediction, never make a prediction about timing”
