Gazing into the crystal ball, there looks like we could have a few interesting things to watch for in 2015 that could have quite an impact on how things develop.
Top of my list of "things to watch" is probably the oil price.
Will it bounce back, stay at current levels, or slide down even further?
How long is the oversupply going to last?
Will it stimulate the global economy?
What effect is it going to have on the SA current account deficit?
Which brings me to number 2 - how is the Rand going to perform in 2015?
I was pretty bearish on the Rand, but with oil prices down...
Depends on the performance of other resources, I guess, given our heavy dependence on resource exports nowadays.
My next point of interest is going to be our dear President over the coming year.
Will he succeed in sweeping Nkandla under the carpet?
When will he rediscover the road to Parliament?
And what is going to happen when he does?
What do you think might be of particular interest in 2015?
