Ravi Batra of TruthOut: Occupy Wall Street movement will bring about demise of Crony Capitalism....

This is quite a prediction, and one that I most heartily hope will come true!
Ravi Batra gives his observations, deductions and conclusions.

1. In 1978 Ravi Batra had written a book in which he had stated that Soviet Communism would
come to an end by the end of the century, and Crony Capitalism would have made the gap
between rich and poor so great, that it would be the cause of the start of a movement
against Capitalism beginning in 2010. Readers scoffed at what he had written. But,
Communism did go out in the early 1990s, and Occuply Wall Sreet did start in 2010 --
just one year later than what he had said more than 30 years ago.

He does make a legitimate case for having been accurate.

So does this mean that his other predictions must of necessity also be accurate, too?
