I remember all the same predictions being made in 2004. Predictions that were made by all the usual suspects.High inflation, high interest rates...etc.What happened with inflation? There isn't any. Just ask anyone on SS, they finally got a COLA raise this year, and it was minimal. And I remember the interest rates were going to go sky high too. What happened? Lowest interest rates in history. So your predictions are worth every penny we paid for them.
