His political observations are quite good. Like Heinburg, as long as he stays away from anything technical, he is worth reading.

Forecasting, thanks for this. As for Trump, he’s not quite a shoo-in, but it’s getting close. His approval rating is above 50% in most polls, constituencies the Dems can’t afford to lose are beginning to break his way — his approval among African-American voters has gone from 9% to 34% in three years, and similar shifts in the Jewish vote and the gay male vote are in process — and he’s got a gargantuan war chest for the election and a nearly unlimited supply of eager and enthusiastic volunteers waiting for him to call them into action. Nor have the Dems managed to find a candidate who appeals to more than a narrow slice of the electorate. My working guess is that he’s going to take between 315 and 330 electoral votes — say, 34 states — and a clear majority of the popular vote.

Booklover, I’m much less confident of China’s rise to global hegemon status than I was. They may still do it, and they’ve made some important steps in that direction, but they could also fail. In that case we get a multipolar century, with India becoming the dominant force throughout the Indian Ocean littoral, Russia stabilizing its position and expanding its influence in the Middle East, and either Brazil or Argentina — or just possibly both — beginning a rise to world power status.

Philip H, no surprises there. On the one hand, online commerce is a major factor; on the other hand, it would be worth knowing if wages have started to tick upwards and joblessness rates to tick down in Britain’s equivalent of flyover country, the former industrial regions of the Midlands and the north. One of the things that’s causing steady retail contraction here in the US is that money is flowing out of the hands of the comfortable classes, for whom shopping is an entertainment activity, and into those of the working classes, who have been schooled by forty years of very hard times to save rather than spend. If things follow the same pattern in the UK, expect to see a lot of high-end retail establishments go under in the years immediately ahead.
