Below is an interview with Gerald Celente from Trends Research Institute. H/T Rod Dreher. Right now, I am not listening to those in politics or the financial institutions for an idea of what is to come in the near future, or how to fix it. I find there is too much coloring of the facts to make what they say worthwhile. Nouriel Roubini was able to forecast the current mess we're in, in large part because of his willingness to look at all the facts available to him. When looking at his reasons, one has to ask why he was ever doubted, except for the wish that things would turn out all right.
While it appears as though things are going to get pretty rough, those of us who are Christians are not to despair. God is working in this, even if we can't see on this side of the veil how exactly he is working it out for good.
If you would, in the comments, tell us what possible good we might see coming out of this and how we might prepare for the continuing downturn in the economy so that we may be of help to ourselves and others.
