Reasons to be cheerful
The doomsayers say: 2012 will be the year much of the world topples back into recession. Unemployment will rise, living standards will fall, businesses will fail, banks will go bust, the eurozone will break up and violent protests will break out on the streets.
But actually: In the UK, inflation will probably soon start falling rapidly. In six months, Britons still in work will see their real incomes start to rise. The Queen's diamond jubilee celebrations in June will raise national morale, encouraging consumer spending, in turn creating jobs and bringing down unemployment. The Olympics will be another welcome boost. The leaders of Europe are likely to take decisive action to prevent the single currency from breaking apart early in the year.
