The past year has been a year of ups and downs. While 2010 saw a return to growth for many countries and businesses, it also furthered the debt crisis with both Greece and Ireland requiring massive bailouts. Equity markets rose and fell then rose again then fell leaving us all a little sea sick but no better off.
However, 2011 promises to be a better year. Company profitability is likely to reach record levels in April. An average increase in profitability of 37% over 2010 levels has been forecast.
