11. More Uncertainty

Predictions are always meant to be taken with a healthy heaping of salt, but we are pretty sure that 2011 will be a year of certain uncertainty, as a volatile economy and an acrimonious political climate make it difficult to plan for the future. Will more European economies need bailing out? Will President Obama's health care reform be modified or repealed? Is another stimulus plan in the works? Entrepreneurs will have to plan for the best, the worst, and everything in between. Well, you've always been doing that, right? —Max Chafkin
