Gerald Celente predicts a major economic depression, tax rebellions, food riots, and by 2012 people will worry about food for Christmas rather than gifts. He predicts that local governments will keep raising taxes to get as much money from public as possible.
Soon, people will have food-producing gardens, and the only thing that can save us must be comparable to an invention of the wheel. He predicts revolutionary advances in renewable energy technologies, medical science, and a shift towards holistic healing practices and a crash of the overpriced college education system.
So buy some gold and then dust off your gardening gear and plant some food!
