Yeah Ironically I think 2013 will be the sleeper year of instant change, in more than one arena. You will also have alot of baby boomers that can no longer put off retirement(5 post melt, means most people will hopefully be able to go back to life as normal. This means that the industry is gonna be going on a scouting fix between 2013-2018. As they best are either retiring, or taking other choose positions at DOD, RIM etc.oldAtlas_Eguy":1ev5tajc said:Yes, currently we see these businesses surviving and growing in a hostile economic environment. I like you, believe if they can survive through this environment and not make any business or technical goofs then when the economy picks up so will they to a fast expansion. It is just like the smart phone manufacturers making profits and spending heavily for development of new phones and software. What will happen to the smart phone market when the economy improves? It will explode!
The current economy is projected to be out of its slump by 2012 or 2013. So by the time that CCDev and Bigelow’s Space Station and Space X’s Falcon 9 Heavy start their operations there will be increased demand for these products, because companies and governments will have more money to spend.
