S. Dent

World-renowned economic forecaster.


Harry S. Dent, Jr. is a best-selling author and one of the most outspoken financial editors in America. Using proprietary research, Harry developed a unique method for studying economies around the world, and uses his analysis to provide insights on what to expect in the future.

Instead of focusing on endless graphs that assume people behave rationally, Harry instead looks at real people, making real economic decisions for themselves and their families. He combines demographics with actual spending to inform his research.

Harry received his MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar and was elected to the Century Club for leadership excellence. He then joined Bain & Company as a Fortune 100 business consultant and now heads the independent research firm HS Dent Publishing.

Since then, he's spoken to executives, financial advisors and investors around the world about demographics and the power of identifying different trends. Harry has appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC and CNN, Fox News and is a regular guest on Fox Business. He has also been featured in Barron's, Investor's Business Daily, Fortune, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications.

Harry has written numerous bestselling books over the last few decades, from The Great Boom Ahead in 1992 to Zero Hour in 2017. In 2019, Harry published his latest book Spending Waves, where he shares decades of extensive research covering over 200 businesses across 14 different industries to give readers insight into business and investing trends for the years ahead.

Talking Points

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.
Dent is the reigning expert in using sophisticated demographic models to see around the economic corner. He saw the boom of the 1990s and warned that a bust would come in 2008 forward. Now he tells us the worst is not over. Harry makes a clear and compelling case for what could be a tough time ahead. Robert D. McTeer

I have worked with Harry Dent since 1998. He is the only person I have read who makes sense out of why we had the boom in the 1990s and why we won't have it again, possibly for many years. His forecasts should certainly be seriously considered by any advisor or investor. He is an invaluable resource to many of my best clients in financial services.

Bill Good

'The Great Crash Ahead' sounds ominous, but it doesn't have to be if you know what factors to look at when making new decisions about your career, your investments and your business model. The old remedies won't work anymore, but visionaries Harry Dent and Rodney Johnson provide their unique insight on how to make your future a prosperous one.

Ed Slott

While being one of the most bullish and accurate forecasters for 20 years, 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

I have watched Harry Dent's unique demographic approach to the economy and his forecasts for over 20 years. He has seen most of the key economic changes way ahead of most. In fact, he forecast the current economic crisis 20 years ago! He has spoken at many of my events around the world and has helped many prepare for the unprecedented economic challenges we are facing today. But perhaps the best thing about Harry is his very human, understandable and common sense approach to economics.
