America becoming an undeveloped nation?

March 4, 2009


I was doing some research today and ran across some startling info. I don’t know what to take of it yet. Gerald Celente–who I’ve never heard of before today– is the CEO of Trends Research Institute. He’s renowned  for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events. He accurately predicted the 1987 Stock market crash, the Fall of the Soviet Union, the 1997 Asian currency collapse, the sub-prime mortgage crisis, and what’s happening right now in our economy. His track record is at

Well, Celente is now forecasting revolution in America, food riots and tax rebellions – all within four years, cautioning that putting food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying Christmas gifts by 2012.

According to his recent Fox News interview called “Predicting Obama’s Impact” (posted on YouTube on Nov. 10, 2008), by 2012 America will have become an undeveloped nation. There will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and holidays will be more about obtaining food than gifts.

This all just seems too crazy! Doesn’t it? For some reason something in my heart tells me I wouldn’t be surprised if this happened though. I’m not at all saying I believe this guy. I’m really cautious of wacky people who try and predict the future but Celente has made his life following trends. He knows and understands history. His track record is insane.

Regardless if we think he is on to something or not, I really think all the more that it’s time for America to wake up and begin seeing what’s at stake. Is the media blowing a lot of this up or are we in denial as to what America’s future could  look like? Right now, I am trying to ask myself what changes I can make financially on a day to day basis to better prepare for the future. For our family, since we’re just about debt-free, it means saving, saving, saving. And of course praying nothing like this would happen, but still preparing for a potential rainy day. Would love to hear your thoughts.

    Wow – just checked out his site. That is very interesting. I hope that it doesn’t come to food riots, tax revolts, etc. That would be very crazy. Praise God we have a Savior that knows everything before THIS man or any of us.

    Definitely. I was thinking last night how grateful I was that God protects us. He’s not caught off guard or surprised by anything. Ultimately, all of this will hopefully draw us closer to seeking Him in these unstable times.

    I don’t know what to think of this either…but I am sure glad you shared it! I need some “unorthodox” opinions about the economy in my life…I don’t want to be surprised by the future…especially the one that we face in the next four years.

    I came upon your website by accident. I would say that instead of saving money which might become worthless, grow a garden. If America goes the way of Zimbabwe or pre-WWII Germany, our currency could become worthless. I wouldn’t count on having “money”.

    Stop praying and start demanding that Obama stop pouring money into corrupt banks.

    I agree with you there in the aspect of tangible money. I believe what the end of the Bible says at that eventually we will become a one world government and currency that will usher us into the “end times”. To me, I trust that whatever way we end up going it will be okay because the final outcome is God’s.
