Daniel J. Sawyer, science fiction and mystery writer, recently posted his annual look at the future, this year entitled “The Year of the Jackpot“.

It’s a fairly dim view of the immediate future.  Sawyer assembles his argument with aplomb, though.

As I’m outside the United States, I have a different perspective, but still can’t argue with most of his observations.  The current NAFTA negotiations are bogging down in the mud.  The Pan Pacific Trade Agreement is heading in the same direction.

From the outside, the United States is raising the drawbridge.

Does that isolationist paranoia remind you of anything?
