Gerald Celente is founder/director of Trends Research Institute and publisher of the weekly "Trends Journal." He is author of the praised and well-sold books "Trend Tracking" and "Trends 2000" (Warner Books).
Due to his 40 year track record in recognizing, tracking and predicting trends, Celente has become leading trend prognosticator. Celente earned his reputation as trustworthy trend researcher due to his precise predictions; including the stock market crash in 1987, the dotcom bust, the "gold bull run", the "panic of 2008", the rise of organic food and popularity of gourmet coffee, long before Starbucks became a household word.
Celente, who developed the globalnomic method for the identifying, tracking, predicting and managing trends, is a political atheist. Free of political dogmas, stiff ideology or conventional wisdom, Celente observes and analyzes current events forming future trends as what they are - not what he wants them to be. His motto is "Think for Yourself."
As a true American patriot, Celente owns three pre-revolutionary stone buildings in the historic corner of America, in which the seeds of democracy were once sown, colonial Kingston, the first capital in the state of New York.
He refers to himself as "Warrior for the Prince of Peace" and is founder of "Occupy Peace & Freedom", a non-profit movement honoring the constitution, the bill of rights and the restoration of freedom.
