My Predictions for 2015

Many predictions lists are published at the beginning of the year. They are almost as prevalent as New Year’s resolutions. And, with lots of good intentions, which fail sometime not long later. Here’s my first attempt at predictions. It will be interesting to reflect back at the end of the year to see just how well I’ve done. Some predictions are more obvious that others – the main point is if these help to create more dialog.

The Economy

  1. Gas prices will stop its steep decline and begin to rise in 2015
  2. Interest rates will rise about summer time
  3. The economy will grow between 3% and 3.5%
  4. Wages and overall personal income will begin to rise


  1. Big Data will become more self-service
  2. The Internet of Things will gain traction while standards will continue to be lacking
  3. Software-defined networking will also demonstrate more traction


  1. No progress will be made on police reform
  2. No progress will be made on race relations and will likely worsen
  3. Contentiousness will significantly increase between Obama and Congress
