For many years I've been making predictions, and then looking back and seeing if those predictions panned out. Prediction 1. Because unemployment will stubbornly stick at around 9 to 10%, and the economy doesn't look like it's going to go gangbusters anytime soon, I think we can expect 2011 shipment trends to be similar to 2010s, only inverted. We have easier comps in the first half of the year, and tougher ones in the second half. Volumes will be down -1% to flat.
