I would expect Jim Richerson to resign but of course he won't.
I would expect Mark Johnson from Caterpillar to take early retirement. He may.
I expect the problems of the museum group are just beginning.
I would expect Caterpillar to keep their headquarters in Peoria and their stock in 5 years to rise to half the value it was in 2007, then $82 per share and now $29 a share and sinking.
I expect Caterpillar to stop paying a dividend before September 30.
I expect a lot of Peorians will "wake up and smell what a mixture of perfume and manure smells like; manure", in the next few years.
I expect to see more empty buildings and houses for sale over the coming few years.
I would make more "predictions" of this communities future but I'm in too good of a mood and am going to go to bed.
P.S. If you think I used too many "I's" in this post, please substitute "we" whenever you feel it is appropriate.
