Bestselling author and renowned economic forecaster Harry S. Dent, Jr., has observed economic trends for decades. As he first demonstrated in his bestselling The Great Boom Ahead, he has developed analytical techniques that allow him to predict the impact they will have. His most recent book - The Great Depression Ahead - explains "The Perfect Storm" as peak oil prices collide with peaking generational spending trends by 2010. 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. Harry Dent delivers customised presentations that address what these aspects of the economy mean for each specific audience and what solutions are available for a better road ahead.

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.

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.
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.
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.
