Gerald Celente
In 2009 we’re going to see the worst economic collapse ever, the ‘Greatest Depression’, says Gerald Celente, U.S. trend forecaster. He believes it’s going to be very violent in the U.S., including there being a tax revolt......


tin hats stuff here.

So Mr. Gerald Celente is an FSB agent then? I agree that RT is nothing more than a propaganda mouthpiece for Putin & co. but Celente is not to be ignored.

RT always host controversial commentators. So, I´d take what he says with a pinch of salt and a big health warning.
No doubt this is a critical phase for an international recovery. However, remember if the worst comes to pass in the US it will be worse here. There will be starvation and civil unrest in this country without precedent. I would advocate having a few thousand euros in small denominations in a safe place at home for at least the next 2 years. And candles, tinned food, flour, sugar and rice etc. Just in case

looks like the sheen will come off Obama fairly quickly. the incumbent tends to be blamed regardless of the origins of the problem. frightening stuff nevertheless.

Ireland's food production will be well able to fee a multiple of our population, no matter what happens. The thing is, will the govt. allow the Irish people to eat the food, or will it export it. If the Govt. are half decent, the army would step in to provide logistics,would the Brits come back in, as they do not have a stable food supply. As for chaos, hunger, and everything else, then I would say nothing would surprise me. If you think that Celente is negative, you should listen to Jim Rodgers, who is considered to be one of the greatest investors of all time.

I have always been intrigued by the idea of cycles of history, that we are condemned by our human nature to repeat mistakes. It seems, that these occur on hundred year cycles, have a look at this article. Once I have more time, I must thrash it out, regarding Ireland's history

The man does not seem to be the leader that he advertised himself as, for all his talk on infrastructure spending as being vital, only 10% of the money is being spent on it. Nancy Pelosi kicked his ass on that. Their is so much "pork" in this, that any stimulus has to be questioned. I am interested in seeing the workings of the bad asset buyback.

Not without diesel, fertilisers, sprays, seeds, etc.

We CAN feed ourselves, and we COULD be an exporter, but we currently don't have a plan for transitioning, and certainly not a plan for a short sharp shock. We can cope with a slow transition, but we would have major problems with a quick one.

Just watch what is happening in the dairy sector at the moment. We've known it was going to collapse for nearly 6 months, but we still haven't anyone looking at a transition plan - what to transition to, how to transition, etc.

Well prior to the mechanisation of farming ( by this I mean tractors, Milking machines, not horse powered) we produced enough food, to feed several times our current population. I do recognise and support transition culture, as being of vital national importance. Is there a course in it that you could recommend

Eorna, Lidl have a much better logistics infrastructure than the Army. I would advocate spending an extra tenner a week into your purchase of non perishable groceries until things get better. Buy Irish if it makes you feel better. But don´t be reliant on this government for your wellbeing. Not saying there will be a famine, but don´t be surprised by anything.

That was before the population moved to Lucan & Naas. The children of these towns ´have probably never planted or dug a spud.

I have just reviewed my forecast. Buy an extra 20 euros of non perishable foodstuffs per week until things get better. And keep plenty of cash in a jar somewhere.

tinned foods are good. But don´t neglect:
Powdered Milk
Flower
Sugar
Instant Potato
dehydrated peas and beans etc.
Camping Stove (black outs)
Candles
Board Games

Don't ask me how, but i stumbled on this interview on Russian T.V last night, before I saw this thread.
Seems pretty sane to me, and kudos for not falling for the Obamamania.
I thought he was wise to suggest investing in "anything medical", considering our growing aging population. He also suggested Gold, but I don't see gold any different than say property or tulips.
The term, "trees don't grow to the sky" could also be applicable for gold.
Can't argue with his contention that an Israeli attack would Iran would herald World War 3 either.

And of course, seeds for the long term.
