Update: ttaaee points out on the forum: I think the above predictions were a little taken out of the context. It says in the article in Manager that this was only an excerpt of predictions, yet not the whole, about the future. I guess the author of the article only chose this part of the predictions because it seems to produce a shocking effect on the readers.
