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 entitled 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. Dent delivers customized presentations that address what these aspects of the economy mean for each specific audience and what solutions are available for a better road ahead.
