Predictions for 2016

I've got a few personal predictions for 2016.

* Oil will level out near 20 per barrel and slowly climb to 70 starting in the summertime. It will take 3 years to reach this number (so, 2019).

* Due to carbon pricing being introduced to Alberta and Canada over the next few years, big V8 engines will become a thing of the past. Expect to see euro-spec type engines and more smaller, turbocharged varieties. Electric cars will explode in popularity

* Android sales will overtake Apple

* Blackberry will remain a niche player and may be purchased outright by apple

* Netflix will try to block VPN's, causing a spike in piracy in Canada.

* Marijuana will become legalized and bought through liquor stores. Expect prices to match Colorado

* Increased domestic terrorism will appear again in the USA. If Trump gets into power, expect a police state. If Hillary gets into power, we could see a war with North Korea.

*I will make $1 million dollars


(Hoping for the last one!)
