Gerald Celente is one of the world’s top trends researchers. His top trends in 2014 start with the Middle East. Iran, Syria, Egypt, Israel, Yemen and Turkey are just a few of the countries facing big problems. Celente exclaims, “You just keep going around the Middle East, it’s total turmoil.” Will there be war in the Middle East in 2014? Celente says, “I thought it would have happened last year; but, then again, there are wild cards.” On the economy, Celente predicts, “Interest rates are going to go up. . . . When interest rates go up, the economy is going down—period.” Celente goes on to say, “I think they are going to institute more tapering, and it’s going to create a financial crisis worldwide.” On gold, Celente predicts, “Then they’re going to dump more dough into the system. When that happens, that’s when you’re going to see the real panic start to happen. . . . You’re going to see a rise in gold prices that’s going to eclipse the last one.” In Asia, Celente points out, “Things are heating up between China and Japan. If that thing goes into a war, it’s a whole new game.” Celente predicts, “Absent the war card, I think we will see a financial crisis before the end of the second quarter of 2014.” Celente sums up what he sees in 2014 as “a year of extremes.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Gerald Celente, Publisher of The Trends Journal.
