The 2018 World Predictions – Michel Hayek

Keeping with every year’s tradition on this blog, I am doing a preliminary translation of the 2018 predictions by Michel Hayek.


  1. I am not a professional translator and I do this as a hobby.
  2. I do not claim that the translation below is accurate or true.
  3. I did not translate everything. I skipped many things including predictions of events that are very local to the Arab region and Lebanon.

If you can understand Lebanese Arabic, I have edited and cleaned the TV interview with Michael and made it available here:

And the full video can be found here:
