Pocket radio show review: Gerald Celente

Coast to Coast, 04/28/08. Guest: Gerald Celente. meh
Gerald Celente promotes a trends analysis product on his website for which he charges $100 per year subscription, which raises a red flag for me. Still, his views are interesting, and possibly accurate. I confess to always listening to his C2C appearances. He believes that we are headed for a depression greater than the Great Depression. Is he correct? Who knows? Looking at the recaps of his past appearances, however, Mr. Celente seemed focussed on "terrorism" as the major trend after 9/11. He did not shift his emphasis to the economy until 2006. I agree with him that the devaluation of the dollar is 800-pound gorilla in the room that no one is talking about. But I don't think that his predictions or trends analyses are any more informed than a well-read observer.
