It is the high point of the year for this blog, when we all put on our tuxedos and runway dresses (in our imaginations) for the Cranach Award Show, in which the winner of the coveted Gluten Free Award for the best prediction of the year will be announced (the award also existing only in our imaginations).
The contestants and their performances can all be found at last year’s post entitled Make Your Predictions for 2021. There you will find 275 comments. Amidst record-level off-topic thread hijacking, you can find some predictions. Some were way off, some were close, and some were pretty good. Picking the winner was more difficult this time–not like the previous year when BernankeIsGlutenFree predicted the rise of a deadly SARS virus, a guess so prescient that we are now naming the award for him–but I think it’s clear enough.
