2012 predictions for conventional and unconventional national security

2012 predictions for conventional and unconventional national security

Every year, a host of actors, from newspapers to magazines, from think tanks to futurists and other experts, publish predictions at the dawn of every New Year.

The aim here is to create a repository of all the predictions done for 2012 that are directly or indirectly related to national security, as primary material for all those who would like later on to sort them, analyse them and finally test them.

The section will be populated as forecasts and webpages are published and identified. You are most welcome to post a link to 2012 predictions you found or did in the comments. Please mention the origin, date, title and hyperlink.

And to start with:

The Economist, The World in 2012, with a twitter feed: @EconWorldin
