The Independent: Trend Hunter And Jeremy Gutsche Featured
- By: BiancaDec 31, 2007
Jeremy Gutsche and Trend Hunter were recently featured in The Independent. The article speaks largely about the economy and things to come in 2008. The quote referenced was, "Borrowing will change dramatically, says Jeremy Gutsche of the forecaster Trend Hunter, who predicts the growth of "peer-to-peer" banking. Under this system, borrowers and lenders are introduced to each other through websites and make private arrangements, cutting out the banks entirely. Some are friends, others strangers who bid in an eBay-style auction for the best interest rates. Admittedly, this is unlikely to happen quickly or stop the continuing growth in the gap between rich and poor."
