Today top trends forecaster Gerald Celente spoke with King World News about the power of gold and an economic collapse. Gerald Celente is the founder of Trends Research, and the man many consider to be the top trends forecaster in the world. Below is what acclaimed forecaster Celente had to say to KWN in this powerful and exclusive interview.
Celente: “That’s what he (Bernanke) said, ‘Nobody understands gold prices.’ He also called gold, I love this one, ‘An unusual asset.’ And he said that some people see gold as ‘disaster insurance.’ Yes, disaster insurance against what people like him and other central bankers are doing — creating a global disaster by printing all of this digital money….
“When you go back and listen to Bernanke, when Ron Paul was a member of the House (of Representatives) and was questioning him and Ron Paul asked him, ‘Is gold money?’ And Bernanke said, ‘No, it’s a precious metal.’
So here’s what I have to say: You better tell the Iranians. (And you better tell) the Turks and the Chinese that are buying Iranian oil and giving Iran gold that they are really not giving them (Iran) anything of value, (that instead) it’s only ‘an unusual asset’ (laughter ensues). So they (the Iranians) are selling oil for unusual assets (laughter).
