The Great Depression Ahead: How to Prosper in the Crash Following the Greatest Boom in History
In his new book, The Great Crash Ahead: How to Prosper in the Crash Following the Greatest Boom in History (Free Press, 2008), Harry Dent outlines how this next great downturn is likely to unfold in three stages, with an interim boom stage between 2012 and 2017 before the long-term slowdown finally turns into the next global boom in the early 2020s. India, not China, will dominate in this next global boom and the U.S. will outpace Europe. Dent shows which countries will have stronger growth trends during the downturn as well. More importantly, he shows how the economy’s life cycle will affect life, business, and investment strategies throughout a person’s lifetime, including career opportunities and children’s educational costs. No other time period is as likely to affect your wealth and well-being as the period from late 2009 into late 2012—especially late 2009 to mid 2011.
Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Upheaval in Modern History to Your Advantage
The turn of the 2020s will mark an extremely rare convergence of low points for multiple political, economic, and demographic cycles. The result will be a major financial crash and global upheaval that will dwarf the Great Recession of the 2000s—and maybe even the Great Depression of the 1930s. We’re facing the onset of what Dent calls “Economic Winter.”
Dent explains all of these cycles, which influence everything from currency valuations to election returns, from economic growth rates in Asia to birthrates in Europe. You’ll learn, for instance:
• Why the most-hyped technologies of recent years (self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, blockchain) won’t pay off until the 2030s.
• Why China may be the biggest bubble in the global economy (and you’d be a fool to invest there).
• Why you should invest in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, and pull out of real estate and automotive.
• Why putting your faith in gold is a bad idea.
Dent provides a range of practical strategies to help you turn the upheaval ahead to your advantage, so you can be prepared and protected.
Harry S. Dent Jr. studied economics in college in the ’70s, but found it vague and inconclusive. He became so disillusioned by the state of his chosen profession that he turned his back on it. Instead, he threw himself into the burgeoning new science of finance where identifying and studying demographic, technological, consumer and many, many other trends empowered him to forecast economic changes.
Since then, he’s spoken to executives, financial advisors and investors around the world. He’s appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC and CNN/Fox News. He’s been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, American Demographics and Omni. He is a regular guest on Fox Business’s “America’s Nightly Scorecard.”
Harry has written numerous books over the years. In his book The Great Boom Ahead, published in 1992, he stood virtually alone in accurately forecasting the unanticipated boom of the 1990s. In The Demographic Cliff, he shows why we’re facing a “great deflation” after several years of stimulus — and what to do about it now.
In 2016 Harry published, The Sale of a Lifetime, where he reveals the secret behind many of the largest (and fastest!) fortunes in history out of great crashes that can create a profits windfall that will last you generations.
