Watch: Glenn makes 7 surprising predictions for the economy in 2018

Nostra-Glennmus?

Glenn has been trying his hand at fortune-telling ever since he got back from vacation. Nostradamus, is that you? Perhaps he’s got a crystal ball up there at his ranch, or maybe he’s figured out how to read tea leaves? Whatever the reason, Glenn has been making a slew of post-holiday predictions: predictions on politics (which you can read about here,) predictions on foreign affairs (find more here,) predictions on technology and artificial intelligence (more here,) and on today’s show, he made some daring predictions about the economy-to-be in 2018.

“Ten years from now, I think we’re going to look back and say it was 2017-2018 when the digital currency took a big step and changed everything. So, with that being said, I’m going to go out on a limb,” said Glenn, adding, “Oh, I can just feel this tape being played back next year and the mocking.”

Glenn’s predictions for the economy in 2018:

Prediction #1: If you put $1000 in the top 10 cryptocurrencies by January 1, 2018, it will be worth $200,000 by January 1, 2019.

Prediction #2: The market cap for cryptocurrencies is going to surpass $1.2 trillion.

Prediction #3: Blockchain technology will be embraced by companies for hundreds of utilities.

Prediction #4: Governments will crackdown on blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Prediction #5: Corporations will adopt cryptocurrencies and blockchain. (Glenn swears he made this prediction before Tuesday’s KODAKCoin announcement.)

Prediction #6: The Dow will “melt up” and then crash.

Prediction #7: Economic instability will bring with it a powerful and dangerous nationalists and socialist movement.

Just for the record, Glenn added an important disclaimer. “It’s not me saying, ‘you know what? Put your money here.’ This is me saying, ‘I could see this happening in the next 12 months.’”
