Forecasting deals with making projections using sound data, good judgment, and excellent timing. Your textbook talks extensively about the need for all three components in its chapter discussing forecasting. Now, it’s your turn to get some practice by discussing the area in which you live. In a 3-4 page paper, discuss what your local environment (i.e., the town/region in which you live) will look like in 2030. In your discussion, use references to support your arguments and your opinions. Also, be sure to address the matter from multiple perspectives (e.g., not just population size and/or the price of gasoline). Think about all the different ways your community is likely to change in the next 10+ years and produce a forecast of what impact these changes might have.
