It would be August 4th, 2013. In terms of the economy, I think it will still be showing some lingering effects of the great 99/00 speculative bubble. I have a hard time believing that the biggest financial bubble in American history won't show any effects 10 years out. Just look at Japan, look at the late 1930's after the '29 crash. Lackluster growth. The DOW will be range bound, 8,000 or so (the baby boom retirement may cause a crunch). Sadly, American manufacturing will be near extinct. Wild consumerism will have ended. After the consumer bubble pops, people will get a wake up call and become more responsible with thier money. Debt will have become a dirty word by then. No more free credit counseling. The dollar will still be the major world currency. The euro will have its bumps in the road, and the Chinese yuan will replace the yen in the big 3 of world currencies. Al Qaeda will hopefully be a distant memory. More freedom in the middle east will ease anti western tensions. Hopefully we're out of Iraq by then!!
