When Warren Buffett speaks, the media world listens. And when it comes to deal making, not even Donald “I am the Greatest” Trump comes close to Buffett. But when it comes to trend forecasting outside Wall Street, the “Oracle of Omaha” is either far removed from Main Street… or, as a major financial backer and Hillary Clinton supporter, is he shilling for her by demeaning “many Americans,” including us, who have documented an America in serious socioeconomic decline? And an America fanning war flames across the globe?
The Federal Reserve operates the largest printing press on the planet. It seeks to hire the most qualified people to address current economic conditions and design strategies to maximize future market potential. However, when crisis strikes and with global equity markets in turmoil, those hired admit they are out of touch with the present and blindsided by the future. As minutes from their own meetings show, when the Panic of ’08 hit, which the Trends Research Institute forecast and named, the Fed was blindsided. Were they stupid then, or just playing stupid? Today, from China’s economy growing at its slowest pace in a quarter century, Japan sinking back into recession, Europe’s stagnant Gross Domestic Product, Asian economies jolted by plummeting exports, emerging-market economies and currencies crashing, commodity indexes gyrating between 1991-to-1999 lows, etc., the “outlook” is clear: Global Recession. What’s the Fed’s position? Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer recently said Fed officials “simply do not know” what course of action to anticipate since “it is still early to judge the ramifications of the increased market volatility of the first seven weeks of 2016.”
Are they stupid, or playing stupid by not seeing the Panic of 2016
Trend forecaster Gerald Celente lays it on the table, dissecting why the bounce back in markets the last few days is bunk. After equity markets worldwide suffered one of the worst starts of a new year in history, stocks suddenly rebounded. For example, the Nikkei closed out last week at its lowest level since October 2014. But what economic fundamentals spiked prices higher this week? Was it the dismal news that Japan’s economy contracted 1.4 percent in the last quarter? No. What boosted stocks prices was the twisted rationale that despite the Bank of Japan firing two rounds of blanks from its “monetary bazooka,” the lousy Gross Domestic Product number was cause to launch yet another round of stimulus. Before Chinese markets opened Monday after being closed for a week, the Shanghai Index had fallen 47 percent since its peak in June. Was it on the rotten news that China’s exports fell 11.2 percent in January and imports plunged 18.8 percent that markets rallied? No. As with Japan, the dismal data was taken as a positive sign that the People’s Bank of China would take bold measures to boost sluggish growth. “Confidence,” trust the effectiveness of the rigged market game, not economic fundamentals, was the rationale for stocks suddenly moving higher. Tuesday’s New York Times headline summed it up: “Global Shares Buoyed by Investor Faith.” Yes, faith in more failed central-bank stimulus and stock and bond buyback sideshows… not faith in true price discovery and robust Gross Domestic product growth.
Gerald Celente breaks down how the talking airheads on business broadcast media keep missing the larger picture of crumbling worldwide economies and the undeniable underlying factors that ultimately will determine economic fate and your bottom line. While future quantitative easing measures or other central bank interventions may temporarily pause the sharp declines in markets worldwide, Global recession and even depression in some countries are unavoidable. Celente tells you what you need to know now.
The signs of global economic meltdown, which Gerald Celente and his Trends Research Institute have forecast for 2016, are multiplying, strengthening and deepening in the early days of the new year. Celente reviews the economic indicators that are weakening and converging to set the stage for Global Recession in 2016. One indicator after another, across the world’s major economies, are showing fundamental and deepening weakness. Further, geo-political tensions in the Middle-East, Asia and elsewhere are fueling instability. What can we expect? What can we do to prepare?
Gerald Celente provides some insights to what major trends his Trends Research Institute are forecasting for the year ahead. Celente and his analysts are predicting a year of geo-political and economic turbulence the likes of which the world has not seen in generations. But the year will also present opportunities – Golden Opportunities, as Celente has labeled the trend – for new profit potential, meaningful work and service and social movements to take shape to generate political and cultural reforms.

Ten critical, fast-emerging trends will affect your quality of life and bottom line in 2016… In this segment of Trends This Week, global forecaster Gerald Celente unveils his Trends Research Institute’s forecast for the year ahead. Looking back back on 2015, with neither economic nor geopolitical fronts looking prosperous or peaceful, the aware and awake are preparing for the year ahead – especially in the new age of equity-market volatility and growing War on Terror fears. But while the concerns are real, a future of gloom and doom does not have to define 2016. There are opportunities in 2016 that, if seized, embraced and manifested with an eye on the future, and an open mind and a warm heart, one can reap great financial rewards, positive social change and personal satisfaction. The full forecast can be found at Trendsresearch.com.
Global master forecaster Gerald Celente rips into the gutless, mindless leaders who – over and over – take us to war. The signs are everywhere now: The potential triggers for World War III are pervasive and growing. Instead of taking a bold and honest look at the root causes of war and terrorism, your leaders pound the drums for war even harder and more recklessly. Worse yet, there is no indication, not one, that this march to war has any counter voice worth its weight. Later in this show, Celente talks about the Trends Research Institute’s Top Trends for 2016, which will be released soon, and his upcoming Florida retreat, “Prepare for 2016.”
