- Great Depression II: The current U.S. recession will turn into a second Great Depression by December 2010. (April 3, 2009)
NOTE: The U.S. economy entered a recession in December 2007, according to a committee of economists at the private National Bureau of Economic Research. David Owen, an economist at Dresdner Kleinwort, suggested a recession turns into a depression if it lasts more than three years. Most Western recessions last only a single year. Some last two years. Only one has lasted longer that wasn’t the result of war. They rarely last longer than that and only one — the Great Depression — was not the result of a war. (April 3, 2009)
- America’s Retirement Crisis – 401Ks Become 101Ks: The collapse of most Babyboomer’s (born 1946-1970) nest eggs due to the economic meltdown that began in 2008 will cause a fundamental restructuring of the investment advisory industry in 2010. (April 23, 2009)
- Economic uncertainty will dramatically increase in the United States as China will begin to dump and hold US dollars at various increments without wiping out their own savings. (May 26, 2009)

- Mexico will be on the verge of systemic collapse due to a series of secular events that will create an economic meltdown. This crisis will weaken the Mexican government’s ability to maintain civic order and control. This will be followed by massive illegal immigration into the U.S. by the tens of thousands due to the growing civil infighting. Mounting military incursions on U.S. soil by rogue Mexican military units, followed by the interruption of Mexican oil production, will lead to an American military response. (March 13, 2009)

- The economic model of globalization that was established by the transnational corporate groups during the mid-sixties (Uranus/Pluto conjunction) and dominated most of the planet during the past 40 years is in its last death throes and will be replaced starting in 2010 with a progressive and sustainable system.

A note to my prediction made on January 10, 2009:
- Regardless of the automotive industry bailout General Motors will still declare bankruptcy by the end of 2009. (Jan. 10, 2009)
NOTE: According to astrologer Susan Manual, General Motors filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy early this Monday morning (June 1, 2009 at 7:57:51 AM), in Detroit, Michigan, according to the petition that was published in today’s Detroit Free Press online. This event marked the humbling of an American icon that once dominated the global car industry. The question now facing 56,000 auto workers, 3,600 GM dealers and the Obama administration: Will GM recover and move swiftly from its bankruptcy? (June 1, 2009)

Minnesota Senate Election 2008
- Former Saturday Night Live actor and comedian Al Franken will emerge victorious over Senator Norm Coleman from the protracted Minnesota recount. (Jan. 01, 2009)
NOTE (04/10/09): The absentee votes that the three-judge election panel ruled as legal were counted yesterday and Al Franken‘s lead expanded from 225 votes to 312 votes. At this point, Norm Coleman has virtually no chance of winning the election contest. Coleman is likely to appeal to the Minnesota Supreme Court and probably to the U.S. Supreme Court if he loses that one. Now the question is whether the Minnesota Supreme Court will order the governor and Secretary of State to sign the certificate certifying the election and how they respond to such an order if it happens.

- The once formidable U.S. war machine will continue in 2009 to hemorrhage its diminishing resources fighting two simultaneous foreign wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. (Jan. 10, 2009)
