Want to get 1999 off to a really cheerful start? Then why not visit our Web site of the week and read the predictions of Dr Ed Yardeni, chief economist for Deutsche Bank Securities, in New York, and a leading authority on the Y2K problem, about the potential for a recession in 2000.
Ever the optimist, Yardeni believes there is a 70% chance that the Y2K programming problem will plunge the world into a serious slump.
Of course, none of the world's top authorities can agree on what exactly will happen when the millennium date change rolls around. So whether you believe Yardeni or not, probably the best thing you can do is stock up on those tinned foods, and start partying like its 1999.
