The Great Depression Ahead: How to Prosper in the Crash Following the Greatest Boom in History
In his 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.
