--A crisis in (fill in name of country) will cause stockmarket prices to fall and television anxiety to bubble up, but will have littlelong-lasting effect on demand for wood products.

--Finding quality employees will continue to be a problem, especiallyin an expanding economy.

--Woodworkers will look to technology and lean methods tocontinue to become more efficient.

--The multi unit sector of housing will remain strong.

--The lack of new good-paying jobs will continue to be achallenge for first-time homebuyers.
