"Why do you want to know the future??? Umm, maybe, let it be. It is often best to just allow tomorrow to emerge as a surprise. Right?" says Sidney Friedman.  "But okay," he adds, "for inquiring minds, I'll clue you in. LOL. Do understand though, MOST of the future CANNOT be predicted. It is not meant to be known. Most of the future is unpredictable. That is as it should be. In fact, no one knows PRECISELY what will be. If we know exactly what will happen, the present would not exist. Also, to a large extent, we make the future.  But once in a while the curtain parts ever-so-slightly, revealing a glimpse of tomorrow's theater. We all get these hunches. Through a variety of techniques (explained in my book and seminar), I attempt to interpret what many of these impressions truly mean — often successfully, sometimes not. Always though, my intention of releasing these foresights is for fun and curiosity."





For 24 years, year after year, one person keeps seeing what tomorrow brings, or, well at least 72% of it. :)


Considered by many as the most accurate prognosticator of our time, mentalist / futurist  Sidney Friedman's goal is to present his prescient impressions for fun and intrigue, always with care when he foresees a serious warning, and above all, with honesty when he is wrong and with modesty when he is right.
Yes, at new year's time, psychics come out of the woodwork like gnats at a barn fire, but Sidney Friedman has the credibility of a documented track record of a 72% accuracy (some years as high as 79% and never lower than 62%) for 24 years stating predictions on shows like ABC-TV’s THE VIEW, NBC-TV’s TODAY SHOW, ABC-TV's 20/20, and numerous other local and national TV and radio shows plus publications like FORBES magazine and the NEW YORK POST.


  • This includes an 89% record of predicting OSCAR winners

  • Since he began including economic foresights in 2009, Friedman has been on-target predicting the exact trend of the stock market and unemployment figures in all but one of those years.  

  • Most extraordinary, in 2012, as published in a NEW YORK POST article, January 2nd, 2012, Friedman stated, "Snow was BIG news last year in New York City. This year it's water!!!"  He also predicted, "Strangely, for a short time there is an UNOCCUPYING of Wall Street." As it turned out, both of these foretold the ravaging effects of one of the most unlikely weather incidents for that metropolis, HURRICANE SANDY, when in late October, Wall Street shut down, evacuations occurred, the markets closed, and water flooded much of the city, subways and islands.

Here are Friedman's

foresights for 2020:

issued 1/6/20

results in RED 


1) A skyscraper will tip.

2) An odd confluence of waves occurs by the eastern United States.

3) A day becomes night at noon, though not from an eclipse.

4) A network will be usurped.

5) A balloon will experience a pop but not a burst.

6) It is the best of times, and it is the worst of times, the test of times, subversed by crimes, as a child in charge goes further at large.

7) The suit is wrinkled, the hair is disorderly, the voice is hoarse, but the numbers grow.  Triumph.

8) Challenged and removed, revolt spreads. Machines falter. The scales bow and crack.

9) The clockwork orange stops near midnight. Try to remember a time in November. The self-correcting nature of the universe materializes.

10) A pillow fight is in the news.

11) Cookies disappear.

12) As a development of the MeToo movement, something called the UsToo movement emerges.

13) Thermometers break in the Middle East.

14) Amaz-off. Amazon damage is in the news for both the region and the retailer. The Amazon forest sees a surprising adaptive recovery in part, but overall suffers severe unrecoverable destruction. The online store experiences a blackout or security breach. 

15) A surprise party in Washington (or Los Angeles) surprises the guests.

16) Flowers bloom in winter.

17) Surprisingly, the national popular vote movement gains huge steam, with individual states ratifying legislation to replace the Electoral College in Presidential elections.

18) A leader of a branch of the United States government suffers a heart condition.

19) An election sees a warp of space and time.

20) Tech predictions: Neural interfaces make a significant emergence.  5G evolves rapidly but not without technical issues. For humans' desire for meaningful connection, more apps are used to bridge the physical with the virtual world. More small and medium size businesses experience cyber crime. Facebook's planned launch of its crypto-currency platform excites some but quickly alarms many as it threatens to dominate and monopolize the banking industry. Greater investment and advancement occurs in “quantum tech” in the USA, but China also keeps pace in this area. New developments will occur in the area of biometric data. Apple discloses details for its electric car. 

21) More financial predictions: A surge of building occurs in the so-called “starter home” category.  Volatility in the markets occurs in late summer or early fall. Interest rates remain mostly static, and surprisingly may drop for a time. Further arrogance creates further doom in the trade war between the USA and China.  A significant number of brick and mortar stores become powered by technology replacing human employees even in large retailers.

22) In celebrity news, Lizzo gets a movie role, maybe even two. Meryl Streep suffers from a vocal malady. Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman wed.  

And, …

23) The Kardashian women swear off plasticity for one day. 

24) Psychics will be wrong.

25) Someone will look for love in all the wrong places.

26) A fake news outlet fakes its death.

27) Oh, and as I predict every year, the Chicago Cubs will make it to the World Series.
