In the 1980s Harry Dent created a whole new approach to economic forecasting: Demographics. People drive our economy with the predictable things they do as they age. From inflation to spending to borrowing to investing, and from micro to macro, he can predict economic trends decades ahead - over the rest of most of our lifetimes.
He predicted the great boom in the late 1980s and early 1990s when most economists saw Japan taking over the world and the US fading.
Harry regularly lends his extensive forecasting expertise to the media on television, in print, and on the radio, and is sought after as a panelist and speaker for international forums around the world. A graduate of the University of South Carolina, he earned his MBA from Harvard Business School.
A prolific author, his best sellers include "The Great Depression Ahead" in 2008 and the more recent "The Great Crash Ahead", Dent keeps his audience up to date through his monthly newsletter, the HS Dent Forecast. In his latest book he outlines why government stimulus is doomed to failure and the economic havoc that lies ahead.
