Harry Dent Reviews
Harry Dent is a well known author and prominent market forecaster who, over the years has provided a long track record of hypotheses and predictions, some of which have been extremely accurate while others off the mark.
As the saying goes hindsight is always 20/20.
Born in 1950 in Berkeley, California Harry Dent maintained a stellar scholarly record throughout his life, graduating from USC at the top of his class. He would then go on to complete his MBA from Harvard Business School as a Baker Scholar.
Throughout his career as an economic researcher Harry Dent developed his own system, The Dent Method, for analyzing market directions.
His approach focuses on interpreting consumer spending data collected throughout the maturation period of a family. This takes into account the spending habits of a person from their youth to retirement factoring in life stages of having children, buying a house, etc.
Using this formula he was able to accurately predict the slowdown in the Japanese economy at the end of the eighties, and the Dow's growth in the early nineties. He details his use of this method and a combination of other demographic statistics to reach his conclusions in many of his books.
Harry S. Dent's notable titles include "The Roaring 2000s," "The Next Great Bubble Boom," and most recently, "The Great Depression Ahead."
In his latest book Dent explains why we haven't seen the worst yet, and predicts a larger drop in stocks and real estate and even higher unemployment rates up till 2013.
The great thing about Harry Dent's books and method is that he gives you a macro view of the economy and really delves deep into demographics for his supporting evidence.
Thus, even if you don't agree with his predictions you can see the trends that he's using to formulate his argument.
Conversely, as with any other market forecaster his advice should be taken with a grain of salt. Dent has had his share of missed calls, notably his 2000 prediction of the DOW reaching 40k.
Despite this there is a lot to be learned from his approach and his research into consumer spending habits.

Dent was Clearly WRONG
Save your money and time....avoid
I don't hear much now about his nonsense saying in the next six to nine months everything would collapse. That nonsense was being continuously promulgated five years ago. All these analysts survive on pure guess work-sometimes they are lucky but more often than not following their every word is a disaster for investors.
yes, when you shout for 50 years that it's going to collapse and then it finally collapses, you can say you were RIGHT for 50 years...
Even a broken clock is right twice a day….. Enough said!
Has Harry ever actually made money on the stock market. What I have often wondered about harry
Harry Dent is a charlatan, who makes moneys by panicking and confusing naive investors, selling them useless stuff, mismanaging their assets, the people like Harry Dent belong in jail since they cannot be held accountable to the many they confused, and who were scared by Dent and bailed out of the market, while market keeps marching on regardless of Dent's ridiculous predictions.
Could DOW go to 3000 ? Sure ! Just as the Moon could fall into the Earth one day.
VIEWED MR. DENT ON CNBC TODAY & SOME OF HE SAID ,I AGREE WITH HIS FORECAST FOR 2010. I FAIL TO SEE HOW WE CAN BUY OUR WAY OUT OF THIS MESS.
EMPLOYMENT WILL NOT PICK UP BECAUSE BEFORE A COMPANY WILL START HIRING THEY WILL WORK THEIR PEOPLE OVERTIME TO TAKE UP THE INCREASE IN BUSINESS. I CAN SEE WHERE WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE A LARGE UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEM.
look up his book the roaring 2020 and you will only need to read a few pages before you throw it inthe garbage. the guy couldn't find water in the middle of the ocean.
