 IFPRI: 2020 News & Views, June 1998
With Japan’s recession exacerbating the crisis, the economic sea change has raised questions about the ability of the region to bounce back quickly as well as the short- and long-term consequences for the poor.
Though the effects of the crisis have varied across the region, sharp and frequent rises in food, fuel, and input prices have created acute food shortages in some countries, again especially in Indonesia.
The crisis has raised the highest food security stakes in Indonesia, because it has been hit all at once by the worst drought in decades, unmanageably steep currency devaluations, inflation, and political instability.

The international community must upgrade conditions for its existing 1 billion slum-dwellers to avert a crisis by year 2020, when 500 million new slum-dwellers would be added to the urban environment, the head of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) told correspondents at Headquarters today.
 The upcoming crisis of expanded slums was one of the challenges facing the current session of the Commission on Sustainable Development, which was focusing on water and sanitation in the context of human settlements.
Stressing that the Commission’s main challenge was to address investment needs for slums, she said UN-HABITAT was encouraged that the financial dimension was now featured in the discussion.

Note that a crisis of 2020 would be a little bit late under my alternative model, Lex's Cyclic Theory of Constitutional Crisis.
Strauss and Howe claim that their model has predictive powers, largely because their cycles are driven by an overall cultural alternation between two extremes of parenting style, which produce four different types of generational outlook which (almost always) follow the same sequence.
Based on what appear to be the starting and ending birth years of generations now living, the "Crisis of 2020" could actually be unambiguously underway by 2012 or so.

 UK will face manual workers crisis by 2020
Workers could be hired from overseas in less than 20 years time because of a "manpower crisis" facing the manual trades, according to a new report.
Research by Dulux Trade shows that few school-leavers were interested in a manual trade, with painting and decorating at greatest risk from a lack of new recruits.
Experts at Dulux Trade said decorating firms would be forced to hire qualified staff from abroad by the year 2020 if current trends continued.

 Crisis: Research Bank
The report gives a stark warning that the numbers of people living out of sight in hostels, temporary bed and breakfast accommodation, squats or sleeping on the floors of friends and family, currently estimated by Crisis at 380,000, is on the rise and is set to reach the one million mark by 2020.
Crisis is calling for a homelessness census to be conducted to rigorously count the numbers of Hidden Homeless people across Britain, and to fully understand their needs.
The report draws on evidence generated from a survey of 164 homeless people in three case study areas (London, Sheffield and Craven, North Yorkshire) and is essential reading for anyone concerned with understanding homelessness in the 21st century; policy makers, housing and homelessness professionals, lecturers, teachers and students.

Anyway if you add 88 years to the beginning of the crisis era in 1932 (this is the date they used in Generations) you get 2020.
Now a crisis era starting in 2020 would imply the end of the Millie generation no earlier than 2012, which would make this gen a gargantuan 31 years long.
Since both the ruler and the marker approach give the same estimate of 2000-2001 for the start of the crisis I hold the opinion that we are now in the crisis.

 PRINCIPAL VOICES ~ Lars Rebien Sørensen ~ White Paper
A: In September, a group of brilliant and committed academics, advocates and experts grappled with the problem of averting a crisis in chronic diseases at the Oxford Vision 2020 summit, held in the Mandela Lecture Hall at Oxford University's Said School of Business.
As CEO of Novo Nordisk - the corporation sponsoring the Oxford Vision 2020 group, a global alliance for better health - the presence of Mandela, even in the form of a bronze bust, was ironic.
Only a few short years previously the company was part of the Republic of South Africa's historic legal battle with the international pharmaceutical industry over property rights on life-saving drugs.

The benefits crisis, however, is likely to occur long before you retire because the Social Security commissioner assumes there will be no benefits reduction until the Social Security trust fund and all its accumulated interest is exhausted.
If you examine the Social Security trustees projection of revenues and benefits excluding trust fund interest, the cash flow crunch will occur before 2020, when you are in your late 50s.
The most important fact here is not that Social Security will be in crisis in 2020 or 2040.

There are no fields now on the drawing board through 2005 that appear likely to produce in excess of 250,000 barrels per day and only a handful are estimated to exceed 200,000 barrels per day.
By 2120 the world will have used up its reserves of coal--reserves which were generated at the time when land plants conquered the earth 400 million years ago and converted sunlight and a high atmospheric CO2 level into a fuel that has been used up at an alarming rate.
