Gerald Celente: Iran War, Oil or Tech Could Sink the Economy

  • War & Financial Calamity Two Biggest Trends – Gerald Celente
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Top trends forecaster Gerald Celente thinks of all the things he studies, war and financial calamity are the two biggest trends he sees. The big game changer in the geopolitical global landscape is war coming from the Middle East.  Celente explains, “It’s the war against Iran.  That’s the way we see it, and we recently did a trend alert on it.  The Iran war will be World War III.  It will also probably be the war to end all wars and a good part of civilization if it happens.  These are the Persians, and they are not going anywhere.”


    Celente contends oil will be at the center of the conflict and points out, “Three years ago almost to the date, June of 2014 a barrel of oil was selling for $115, today around $45 a barrel. There is going to be economic turmoil throughout the Middle East.  I always say when all else fails, they take you to war.  You see the war between Yemen and Saudi Arabia, it’s going to blow into Saudi Arabia. . . . So, when we are looking at the Middle East, it’s really Iran.  They are shooting down Iranian planes and shooting down Iranian drones.  Iran is the bottom line in this. . . . So, we see these tensions really building up, and it’s going to be Iran.  If Iran and anybody goes to war, the Russians and the Chinese take the Iranian side, and Europe and the United States take the other side.”

    In the coming financial calamity trend, look no further than financially strapped Illinois that is so broke it is no longer allowed to sell Powerball lottery tickets. Illinois is insolvent and cannot pay its bills.  It has hundreds of billions of dollars in bond debt and pension obligations and no way to pay them. Celente says, “All it will do is screw the people.  That’s all it will do.  This is like austerity measures in other countries.  That means they are going to rob you of your pensions, your benefits, raise your taxes, and they will increase your retirement age until after you die.  So, what they will do is keep the Ponzi scheme going. . . . There are two different worlds.  The people’s lives can continue to decline.  That we are seeing with the wage data.  Obama bragged, folks I created 10 million jobs.  According to the Harvard/Princeton study, 94% are temporary work.   So, you can see all these collapses going on, but they will keep the Ponzi scheme going.  So, we will have a decline, in absence of a wild card, and we see a 10% correction in the market. If we have terror strikes or other wild cards, it’s going to be a crash because it’s all being held up by lies and dirty deals for the very rich.”
