Harry S. Dent, Jr.

hsdentHarry Dent studied economics in college in the ’70s, but found it vague and inconclusive. He became so disillusioned by the state of his chosen profession that he turned his back on it. He spent the ’80s coming up with a radical new approach to forecasting the economy; one that revolved around demographics and innovation cycles.

Since then, he’s spoken to executives, financial advisors, and investors around the world. He’s appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC, and FOX. He’s been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, American Demographics, and Omni.

Harry has written numerous books over the years. In his book The Great Boom Ahead, published in 1992, he stood virtually alone in accurately forecasting the unanticipated boom of the 1990s.

In 1998 he authored the best seller: The Roaring 2000s, and in 2008 wrote, In The Next Great Bubble Boom, where he offered a comprehensive forecast for the following two decades.

In The Great Depression Ahead, written in 2009, he outlined how the next great downturn is likely to unfold in three stages, with an interim boom stage between 2012 and 2017 before the long-term slowdown turns into the next global boom in the early 2020s.

In The Demographic Cliff, Harry shows why we’re facing a “great deflation” after years of unprecedented stimulus — and what to position for that rare event.

His latest bestseller, The Sale of a Lifetime shows all the opportunities that will abound once the great reset has begun. His newest book, Zero Hour, warns of the greatest political polarization since the Civil War and why we will see a major revolution that will rival the advent of democracy itself.

Harry got his MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar and was elected to the Century Club for leadership excellence. He has been a Fortune 100 business consultant at Bain & Company, CEO of several small companies, a new venture investor and founder of Dent Research.
