I've been listening to him for about three years now, and while there have been things that have taken longer than he suggested, almost everything
he's said in that time has been happening.
He predicted the overthrow of European governments, he predicted the riots in Greece, he predicted the rise of the 99% and he predicted the increase
in Nationalist sentiment and the far-right. He predicted other nations moving away from trading in $'s, China becoming more aggressive, and another
war. That's along with the bail out of Greece, Ireland, the collapse of the Spanish property boom and several other events.
The only things he has been less than accurate on is the complete collapse of the $.
Most people understand that the only reason this hasn't happened is because the US Govt. keeps creating new tricks to delay the crash. When you look
at the numbers, it's not unreasonable to expect that the $ will completely implode at some time in the near future, and the fact that it has lasted
so long through this crisis is pretty remarkable.
I think a lot of people seem to believe that Celente is a single man working with a crystal ball or something. He's actually a part of a team,
watching and following events all around the world from different perspectives and formulating the most likely scenarios from it. He's not using any
remarkable powers, he's simply paying attention.
If you look back through the history of economic meltdown posts from 2007/8/9 you'll see a lot of people here were predicting the same things, just
through common sense.
I haven't listened to all of this yet, but I will when I have the time. It's always interesting to hear him going off on one of his rants about the
bankers and government. And I often hear him mention aspects of the collapse that I haven't actually considered before.
