As Political Atheists — independent thinkers, unencumbered by rigid ideology, political persuasions, fixed agendas or conventional wisdom — The Trends Research Institute observes and analyzes the current events forming future trends for what they are – and not for the way they want them to be. Founded in 1980 by Gerald Celente, The Trends Research Institute has earned its reputation as the world leader in trend forecasting by identifying major trends with time proven accuracy … before they occur. Our research distinguishes facts from fantasies, trends from fads and assess the new opportunities required to create the future that each client wishes to attain. By incorporating the most reliable data available from a worldwide variety of sources, the Institute delivers a uniquely balanced and comprehensive perspective. The purpose of trends research is to see where we are, understand how we got here and forecast where we’re going … and to provide insights and directions to help better prepare for what the future may bring. The Trends Research Institute projects the future trends and explains how they’ll affect business, government and industry and what they’ll mean professionally and personally. For any business — start ups or established — or anyone wanting to confront and explore the future, a tomorrow of new discoveries and rewarding opportunities await them.
