He developed the Globalnomic® methodology, which is used to identify, track, forecast and manage trends. In conjunction with his Trends Research Institute, Celente provides trend research studies, keynote and seminar presentations, and consulting services to businesses, associations and governments worldwide.
He is a political atheist. Unencumbered by political dogma, rigid ideology or conventional wisdom, Celente, whose motto is “think for yourself,” observes and analyzes the current events forming future trends for what they are — not for the way he wants them to be. And while Celente holds a U.S. passport, he considers himself a citizen of the world.
He wrote the bestseller Trends 2000 and Trend Tracking; developed the nation’s first professional course in trend forecasting; and is the founder and publisher of Trends Journal magazine.
“The most trusted name in trends” Celente coined the term “clean foods” in 1993 and predicted sustained growth in organic products in 1988. When gold was at $275 per ounce in 2002, Celente said the price had bottomed and in 2004 forecast the beginning of the Gold Bull Run. Since that time, with pinpoint accuracy, he forecast when, why — and how high — gold would go.
Years before Starbucks was a household name, he forecast the popularity of gourmet coffee. Decades before Pepsi and Coke got into the water business he predicted the big boom in bottled water.
On the geopolitical and economic fronts, Celente forecast the Panic of ‘08, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the last two recessions, the dot-com meltdown, the 1997 Asian currency crisis, the 1987 world stock market crash, increased terrorism against America, “Crusades 2000,” and, before war there even began, the quagmire in Iraq.
He forecast real estate trends, including the big move to vacation spots and small towns, the growth in the second home market, a real estate “fizz” in 2005 … plus hundreds of other social, business, fashion, consumer and entertainment trends.
