We’re Headed For A Crash, Says Seer Gerald Celente — Keep Buying Gold
Daily Ticker/Yahoo Finance ^ | 9/14/11 | Henry Blodget

Posted on 09/14/2011 9:51:10 PM PDT by Kartographer

Famous forecaster Gerald Celente of Trends Research says the world's in the midst of another depression and that we're headed for another crash. Celente won't get specific about what he means by "crash," at least with respect to the stock market, but he's convinced that the world is going to the dogs. We'll have riots, he says. And wars. And society as we know it will continue to break down.

Just one question:

How do you keep buying gold if you never started buying gold?
Anybody got a simple answer?

(actually, I do have a gold pan somewhere and a small dredge...)

One simple answer is, he’s not talking to you personally but to the general public, of which you are a member. The general public has been buying at least some gold, and should continue doing so. It would be acceptable under this interpretation for you to begin buying gold, even though that would appear to contradict his instructions to “keep” buying gold.

"Seer" Celente isn't "seeing" very well if he's advising buying gold into a major depression.

Commodities will get hammered, with gold and silver taking a little longer to go down due to their emotional apron strings.

Under those circumstances, there are more important things to buy that would assure one's survival.

Forget buying Gold. Stock up on canned goods. If there is a meltdown a can of food will be worth its’ weight in gold. Or, stock up on lead and brass. You can use it to get all the gold you want.

I agree with you.

It should be clear to all that the world’s economy is on life support and the doctors are all ‘quacks’! Sooner or latter are the spinning plates are going to start to tumble and there is going to be on hell of a mess!

What kind of a mess you ask, well I think that we are in for something like the collapse of Argentina ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yerKMQc7-w&feature=grec_index )but on a global scale. Additionally I think we will see a much more violent version. As recent events show (Flash Mobs, UK riots, etc)we have a larger entitlement minded population and a the US has a much more violent and armed population than Argentina. I see many many small business wiped out by flash mob looting, and see rape, robbery and murder for murder sake. Many of these ‘yutes’ will think no more about killing you than most people think about stepping on a roach. That will be the test of many. Most preppers I know are Christian people and they will hesitate to do what they might have to do to stop the ‘yutes’. On the other hand the ‘yutes’ won’t think twice nor lose a minute of sleep, in fact they will smile and laugh about it.

Think of this quote which is one of my favorites:

“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8)” (1998)
Quark: Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. They’re a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You don’t believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.

Now go look at some of the videos of the riots in the UK and of some of the flash mobs here in the US and look into there eyes.

For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:

http://www.tomeaker.com/kart/preparedness1i.pdf

For those of you who haven’t started already it’s time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.

As the LDS say “When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.”

Or as the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3

Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.

“There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.

Underestimation can be fatal.”

The general public is unemployed, has lost his house, and is struggling to put food on the table.

I put another 8 lbs of NFDM (Non-fat dry milk) in storage the other night. Enough for 40 qts.

Pricey, though. 4 lbs for $16, so 32 bucks total.

Yes, buy Gold and see Obama pass a law like old FDR and have all the gold seized at a low price—or face prison. They did it once and they can do it again. Unlike guns—gold isn’t in the Constitution. The more gold you buy. more will be seized and sent to China to pay our debts. Buy all you like to support the USSRA and Obama’s fat cat supporters. When they come for your gold I will be munching popcorn and watching.

Sorry, the govt will not come for your gold. If they do, the financial system is so far collapsed that it really won’t matter. Probably isn’t enough physical gold in the United States held by private investors to make that much of a difference.

FDR did not confiscate gold jewelry. Neither will Zer0 or he’ll have all the gangsta brothas and his wealthy backers at his throat.
You take your bullion or coins and have them made into chains. “Spend” them a link at a time. (by weight)
This was how the Spanish and Portugese got gold and silver out of the New World without it reverting to the Crown which had coins and bars minted before transport back to Europe. That’s why those outrageously long chains of PMs are found at old wreck sites.

Besides,, That was then, this is now. Unless he can orchestrate a worldwide turn in of Gold, it’s meaningless. It can be EASILY sold outside the USA.
And jewelry wasn’t collected. How about that collection of one ounce gold medallion necklaces! (they are great accessories for a trip to Canada or Europe ya know)
Also,,, most people will remember that FDR nearly DOUBLED the price of gold immediately after the call in.

This ain’t the 1930s. People are wise to their scams more than ever,,and mass communications have exploded.

Look into buying bullion coins and bars-
sold in small amounts of 1 grain to 1 troy oz or more

You can browse eBay or any of the precious metal selling sites to get a feel for prices

My first purchase was coins of 1/10 oz - easy money if I ever need to cash them in or barter them. You pay a premium over spot price of metal for the coin but get it back when you sell

Silver is also real money and cheaper. Pre-1964 US coins have 90% silver content and are called “junk silver”, you can accumulate them

Here is an idea of the precious metal value of gold and silver coins
http://www.coinflation.com/silver_coin_values.html

I don’t care what hoarders say- people will always need some form of recognized money and gold and silver habit from 10,000 years will be hard to break. If your local dealer had gasoline to sell or barter would he prefer silver or gold coin or 10 cans of beans?

Most gold (75%) is bought elsewhere in the world, India and now in vending machines in China. Imagine somoene buying 5 POUNDS of gold from a vending machine! I just wonder how the machines keep up with spot prices?

Don't forget toilet paper. It sounds funny, but I have over 120 rolls stashed away. It can be used for bartering.

I have about 6 months of canned goods that don't need to be cooked or heated. I won't break into that until the wildlife disappears.

Of course, plenty of ammo for the tools.

Every payday I allocate $25 for survival goods.

If the SHTF scenario really occurs, that won’t be the least of it. Interesting times. God luck, all.

Ammo will be worth more than gold WTSHTF. Even spending $25 every pay day on a 100-round brick of 12 gauge birdshot at Wal-Mart, or $20 on a 550-round box of .22LR will pay off exponentially...as barter material, being able to put food on the table and for defense against two-legged predators.

Of course, it's also a good idea to have at least 500 rounds for every weapon in your arsenal, and 1000 rounds for your workhorse rifles. That way, when those with the "I have a gun, so I can get all the food, gold and ammo I want from my neighbors" attitude can become carrion for the vultures in your driveway.

I found a method and app recently that allows you to keep viewable documents on your ipod/iphone/itouch.

It’s called “MightyDocs”. What you do is you upload the documents, like Kartographer’s preparedness manual, to docs.google.com and sync mightydocs to your google docs account.

(Yes, I DO have the means to recharge my device from solar.)

Anybody got a simple answer?


Start now, stop worrying about the price. Invest a regular amount of dollars regularly, and don’t worry.

Gold is a drop in the bucket, no one will comply, and your “popcorn” schadenfreude suggests you have financial resentment and insecurity issues.

Ammo will be worth more than gold WTSHTF.


I agree that ammo is a fine way to save your wealth in the form of useful barterable tangibles.

But your statement is economically meaningless. “Worth more”? Per unit weight? (You’re dreaming).

I never said anything about which is more valuable economically. Ammo will save your life WTSHTF, whether by putting food on your table, or by protecting you from two-legged vermin and predators. And yes, it will be valuable barter material as well. I'm not dreaming, so take your condescension elsewhere.

It’s funny.

I’ve listened to Celente numerous times on George Noory’s “Coast to Coast” (formerly Art Bell’s program)

He’s always stating clearly the sky is falling.

Listened to him on Alex Jones’ show a couple weeks ago.

The dude sounded like a longshoreman. What a vocabulary!

I’m not sure I trust someone who is so capable of switching between completely different versions of the very same English language, so comfortably.

Just saying...
