Trends Research 2010 Trends

This information should be self explanatory.

Here are some of Gerald Celente’s health, environmental, social, entertainment, cultural, business and consumer trends for 2010.

• The Crash of 2010: The Bailout Bubble is about to burst. Be prepared for the onset of the Greatest Depression.

• Depression Uplift: The pursuit of elegance and affordable sophistication will raise spirits … and profits.

• Terrorism 2010: Years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq – and now Pakistan – have intensified anti-American sentiment. 2010 will be the year of the lone-wolf, self-radicalized gunman.

• Neo-Survivalism: A new breed of survivalist is devising ingenious stratagems to beat the crumbling system. And, they’re not all heading for the hills with AK-47’s and pork & beans.

• Not Welcome Here: Fueled by fear and resentment, a global anti-immigration trend will gather force and serve as a major plank in building a new political party in the US.

• TB or Not TB: With two-thirds of Americans Too Big (TB) for their own good (and everyone else’s), 2010 will mark the outbreak of a “War on Fat,” providing a ton of business opportunities.

• Mothers of Invention: Taking off with the speed of the Internet revolution, “Technology for the Poor” will be a major trend in 2010, providing products and services for newly downscaled Western consumers and impoverished consumers everywhere.

• Not Made In China: A “Buy Local,” “My Country First” protectionist backlash will deliver a big “No” to unrestrained globalism and open solid niches for local and domestic manufacturers.

• The Next Big Thing: Just as the traditional print media (newspapers/magazines) were scooped by Internet competition, so too will new communication technologies herald the end of the TV networks as we know them.

Here is a sample of the latest Trends Journal.

Recession Ending Soon?!?

The recession is over, right. At least that’s what Bernanke says. The housing market is still very slow and commercial real estate is taking a hit. Every one “needs” a bailout. It’s interesting to see who’s else is calling for help—the FDIC. So the government insurance company that guarantees that we won’t lose our money is getting tanked. What’s next? Now I understand why all those “older” people hid their money underneath their mattress. To close this blurb off, check out who else is teetering toward extinction.
