Trend Alert: U.S. Has Entered “The Greatest Depression”

Trends research analyst Gerald Celente, who has risen in prominence on the back of his deadly accurate economic predictions, says that the collapse of financial markets heralds the start of “The Greatest Depression”.

In his latest Trend Alert bulletin, Celente attacks mainstream pundits who falsely predicted a market bottom and the start of a recovery, noting that conventional analysts have been proven “dead wrong” again and that, “There will be no turn around in the second quarter of 2009 or 2010 or 2011.”

“The global financial system, built on endless supplies of cheap money, rampant speculation, fraud, greed, and delusion is terminally ill and will not be coaxed into remission by stimulus packages nor restored to health by government buyouts and bailouts,” writes Celente.

The most positive prediction that Celente makes is that the Dow will not reach zero, a tongue in cheek reaction to yesterday’s record plunge which saw the Dow rolled back to 1997 levels well below 7,000.

Celente warns that the first signs of real panic are starting to set in, unrest that will cause governments to “take draconian measures to prevent total economic collapse and public panic.”

“Expect massive bank failures, runs on banks, and bank holidays,” writes Celente. “Even if deposits are FDIC insured, quick access to money is by no means assured. At minimum, have reserves on hand for emergencies,” he forecasts.

Celente cites gold as one of the few investments that will continue to rise in value, eventually reaching $2,000 an ounce and beyond.

Celente’s dire forecasts were initially scoffed at by the media but as the crisis has worsened, his credibility has soared.

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 2007 that the following year would be known as “The Panic of 2008,” adding that “giants (would) tumble to their deaths,” which is exactly what we have witnessed with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and others.

  1. The U.S. has entered into an inflationary depresion. The cost of food and energy keeps going up and real wages are going down. There are people in the service and informations economy, mainly retailing that are receiving h ourly wages that I earned 32 years ago. The cost of living has went up at least 300% in the last 30 years. That doesen’t even include the unemployed and the people working part time. Something has got to break very soon. You have price inflatiion on the one hand and wage deflation on the other. I guess when the gap gets wide enough the economy falls through the crack. Without monetary and banking reform, retoring private property rights free from all leans and encumberances and the balanced budget ammendment we are all doomed to debt slavery. How do you fix a system this badly broken? A start in the right direction would be to run the money changers out. Repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 2913 and restore monetary to the U.S. Treasury to create and extinguish honest debt free money based on gold and silver. Restore private property rights free from all leans and encumberances. The system is so badly broken it will take major reforms to fix it. Even if you have a sound money system, there needs to be a responsible fiscal policy by the government. There are too many reforms to list here. The Inernational Bankers have corrupted everything they have touched.
