Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute, is renowned for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events, which will send a chill down your spine considering what he told Fox News this week. Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts. âWeâre going to see the end of the retail Christmasâ¦.weâre going to see a fundamental shift take placeâ¦.putting food on the table is going to be more important that putting gifts under the Christmas tree,â said Celente, adding that the situation would be âworse than the great depressionâ. âAmericaâs going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for,â said Celente, noting that peopleâs refusal to acknowledge that America was even in a recession highlights how big a problem denial is in being ready for the true scale of the crisis. Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts. Celente, who successfully predicted the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis, the subprime mortgage collapse and the massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar, told UPI in November last year that the following year would be known as âThe Panic of 2008,â adding that âgiants (would) tumble to their deaths,â which is exactly what we have witnessed with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and others. He also said that the dollar would eventually be devalued by as much as 90 per cent. The consequence of what we have seen unfold this year would lead to a lowering in living standards, Celente predicted a year ago, which is also being borne out by plummeting retail sales figures. The prospect of revolution was a concept echoed by a British Ministry of Defence report last year, which predicted that within 30 years, the growing gap between the super rich and the middle class, along with an urban underclass threatening social order would mean, âThe worldâs middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest,â and that, âThe middle classes could become a revolutionary class.â In a separate recent interview, Celente went further on the subject of revolution in America. âThere will be a revolution in this country,â he said. âItâs not going to come yet, but itâs going to come down the line and weâre going to see a third party and this was the catalyst for it: the takeover of Washington, D. C., in broad daylight by Wall Street in this bloodless coup. And it will happen as conditions continue to worsen.â âThe first thing to do is organize with tax revolts. Thatâs going to be the big one because people canât afford to pay more school tax, property tax, any kind of tax. Youâre going to start seeing those kinds of protests start to develop.â âItâs going to be very bleak. Very sad. And there is going to be a lot of homeless, the likes of which we have never seen before. Tent cities are already sprouting up around the country and weâre going to see many more.â âWeâre going to start seeing huge areas of vacant real estate and squatters living in them as well. Itâs going to be a picture the likes of which Americans are not going to be used to. Itâs going to come as a shock and with it, thereâs going to be a lot of crime. And the crime is going to be a lot worse than it was before because in the last 1929 Depression, peopleâs minds werenât wrecked on all these modern drugs â over-the-counter drugs, or crystal meth or whatever it might be. So, you have a huge underclass of very desperate people with their minds chemically blown beyond anybodyâs comprehension.â The George Washington blog has compiled a list of quotes attesting to Celenteâs accuracy as a trend forecaster. âWhen CNN wants to know about the Top Trends, we ask Gerald Celente.â â CNN Headline News âA network of 25 experts whose range of specialties would rival many university faculties.â â The Economist âGerald Celente has a knack for getting the zeitgeist right.â â USA Today âThereâs not a better trend forecaster than Gerald Celente.
