Hey, this is cool! And it's not the usual suspects, either.

James, I have to say, predicting recessions and booms
15 years in the future seems about as plausible as predicting
rain-or-shine six months in the future. I mean, it's
hard enough predicting chaotic systems when you can actually
capture the state of the system and when the components
of the system act deterministically...
