Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Dent has always been warning that this great boom would end around 2008-2009. He now sees a bigger crash ahead and a deflationary environment that could ravage your portfolio. His warnings and predictions are well worth reading and taking seriously. David Bach, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Automatic Millionaire
“Dent’s...theories are persuasive and elaborated in meticulous descriptions of historic economic trends and cycles. The author’s candor is refreshing, especially when he discusses how equity investments experience a wide variety of returns, including substantial losses or extraordinary gains—and that the financial press has failed to remind the public of this fact.”   Publishers Weekly
Economists cannot forecast the economy very well, and most would admit it if their jobs didn't depend on the fiction that they can. So most economists become closet extrapolators, with some minor tweaking for visible pending developments and policy changes. Even I can see to the next corner pretty well, but I can't see around the corner. There is one exception, however. Demographics! Demography, as they say, is destiny. The reason is that you can see the future based on the facts of the present and demonstrated behavior. You can see the pig, or the pigs, going through the python. Harry Dent is the reigning expert in applying sophisticated demographic analysis to economic forecasting. His past record of getting it right speaks for itself. I hope he's wrong this time. I hope we don't have a great depression by 2010. But given his track record, I won't be betting against him. Robert D. McTeer, Distinguished Fellow, National Center for Policy Analysis, and former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas
While many talk of change these days, the real question lies in assessing in what direction things will change. Harry Dent does a masterful job using demographics and other key cycles to lay out where and when changes will come that will have sweeping ramifications for our pocketbooks, our way of life, and our nation. I cannot more highly recommend this book. Mark Sanford, governor of South Carolina
“What Harry Dent brings to the much-discussed subject of the now-insolvent world markets is an unrelenting grasp of both the facts and the figures behind the greatest financial collapse of modern times. His subdued tone conveys a hard edge as he tells of the hardships surrounding plummeting real estate values.”   AudioFile
“[Dent] makes a compelling case for his predictions...This is an excellent book to challenge a broad range of library patrons.” Booklist

Author Bio: Harry S. Dent Jr.

Harry S. Dent, Jr., is recognized as one of the most reliable economic and business trend forecasters of our time. He has been profiled and quoted in Fortune, Business Week, the Wall Street Journal, Investors Business Daily, and Entrepreneur and regularly appears on CNN, Fox, and CNBC. He is a Fortune 100 consultant, small business manager, new venture investor, and noted speaker and has a Harvard MBA. He stood virtually alone in forecasting the unanticipated boom of the 1990s in his book The Great Boom Ahead. He also predicted a downturn in the US that would start around 2008. In 1989, when Japan looked invincible, he forecasted that the Land of the Rising Sun was on the verge of a 12–14-year downturn, which followed in short order. He offers a refreshingly understandable view of how the economy works and suggests practical applications at all levels, uniquely using the science of demographics to identify changing trends and opportunities. He has proven that by using his approach to understanding the economy you can foresee the key economic trends that will impact your life, your business, and your investments over the rest of your life.
