The Man Who Predicted Japan’s Lost Decade … The Recession of 1990-92 … The Biggest Bull Market Run in U.S. History… and Most Recently, the 2008 Credit Crisis and Stock Market Crash… Now Warns You About:


How You Can Be One of the Few To Sidestep the Carnage – And Secure a Legacy of Wealth as It’s Happening

Hello, my name is Harry Dent.

Over the past 30 years now, I’ve been using known economic and demographic trends to predict major economy and market shifts with uncanny accuracy.

If you know my work – and that of my firm, HS Dent – you know that we’ve helped a lot of investors save money and become wealthy by accurately forecasting major economic events over the years.

Most recently we gained national attention for our work in warning investors of the 2008 credit crisis and subsequent stock market collapse, many months before it happened.

We also said a recovery rally would present a good, albeit “short lived” buying opportunity in 2009, 2010, particularly when the government steps in with a stimulus effort.

Most recently we said the housing market will take far longer to recover than most people would imagine until at least early 2015.

If you’ve been watching the markets the past four years, you know just how right we were.

But it’s not the first time we’ve been “on the money” with our big picture forecasts.

In 1989 we warned that the economic boom in Japan would end and begin a 12- to 14-year downturn.

Around the same time we predicted the U.S. economy would struggle with a “short but sharp” recession in 1990 and 1992, before embarking on one of the greatest economic and stock market booms in American history with a Dow of 10,000 by the early 2000s.

We not only called the top of the 2000 tech markets in early 2000, but also issued the strongest “buy signal” of our 30-year history in October 2002 – and watched the DOW soar from 7,200 to 14,280 over the next five years.

In other words, we accurately predicted most major economic and stock market events that could have made you substantially richer – or poorer over the past 20 years.

These and other forecasts are all a matter of public record – either through the best-selling books we publish or through HS Dent Research publications.

And as you’ll discover a little later in this presentation, they were easier to predict that you might ever imagine!

But I’m not talking to you today to brag about our past successes.

I reference our forecasting success because our research tells us we’re entering an economic cycle that will almost certainly greatly impact your life, your family, your business and your investments for the coming decade.

Much of the Main Street media and many Wall Street’s pundits want to you to believe the worst is over – and that, except for a few bumps in the road here and there, we’re well on the road to recovery.

That’s not what my research says…

Which is why I’ve prepared this urgent presentation.

In short, there is a “perfect storm” of economic and demographic realities brewing that will likely make the next decade one of the most trying times in U.S. economic history.

Just some of what you can expect in the coming months:

  • Unemployment will move higher once again – to roughly 15% nationwide – and as high as 25% if you count long-term unemployed.
  • Housing prices will fall an additional 30% plus – despite the biggest stimulus plan in history and the lowest mortgage rates in 40 years.
  • Saddled with record high private debt ($42 trillion – an estimated $140,000 for every man, woman and child in America), falling income and no equity left in their homes… personal bankruptcies and property foreclosures will soar as much as 30%.
  • With no more federal money to fall back on and their budgets in crisis, state and municipal governments will be forced into default, especially at the city and county level.
  • Faced with huge revenue shortages, the federal deficit will balloon from $1.3 trillion to as much as $3.0 trillion.
  • The global credit crisis – Phase II – will spread from America to other parts of the world. First up will be European countries: Greece, Portugal, Spain… maybe even by the time you hear this…
  • Despite the lessons learned in 2008, mortgage companies have resumed offering low interest, no principle “teaser” loans – with rates resetting higher throughout 2011… leading to yet another banking crisis , with no bailout possible this time.
  • As government, corporate and personal spending dries up, the Dow and other indexes will tumble as much as 70%… reaching our projected 3,300 low by late 2014.

I know these are bold and grim predictions.

But as you’ll see in a moment, the scenario I’ll be describing today was practically preordained to happen – as far back as the mid 1990s when the bubble in stocks and real estate began, and Baby Boomers were heading for their peak spending years into 2007.

Again, I’ll explain why and how all this will come to pass in a moment.

But please also understand that there’s also a tremendous upside to what’s about to transform over the next decade.

After all, when you’re able know what’s coming – and position yourself accordingly – the years ahead could very prosperous times.

You’ll have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to:

  • Protect yourself from financially devastating stock market and real estate losses by escaping the markets and other doomed investments before the carnage begins.
  • Earn millions through specific ‘decline-related’ investments year after year, over the next decade…
  • Eliminate personal debt (including mortgages) years early for quarters on the dollar…
  • Create a “legacy of wealth” by snapping up property, stocks and nearly every investment you can think of at fire sale prices…
  • Set yourself up for the next long term “boom cycle”, set to begin as early as 2020…
  • Retire in luxury, with enough money to live like a millionaire and leave a “legacy of wealth” to your children and heirs.

In short, you’ll have an opportunity to transform your financial life faster and more radically than any boom market can.

But before I go any farther, let me set the record straight…

I take no pleasure in telling you what’s in store for America and the stock markets in late 2013 and beyond.

I’m not a “doom and gloomer” by nature, or in my professional work.

I have no political or economic axe to grind.

But I am an economic realist…

A Harvard MBA graduate, Fortune 100 consultant and new venture investor who, with the help of the Research Foundation I created, has discovered a powerful and incontrovertible link between the science of ‘generational analysis’ and what the markets are about to do next.

And I’m simply following what I know from our research and the historical data behind it to its logical conclusion.

Believe me, it was much more “fun” when I correctly forecasted the greatest and longest “bull run” in stock market history in my 1993 best selling book “The Great Boom Ahead”.

In it I said the Dow would soar from 2,900 well into five figures over most of the coming decade… that cheap credit would spur one of the greatest real estate booms in decades… and that innovations, especially in information technology would create more opportunity in the decade ahead since the Industrial revolution.

A lot of people thought we were crazy back then.

As you probably recall, 1993 was not a particularly “rosy” year.

We were just emerging from a very rough two year recession where unemployment had nearly doubled. Iraq’s attack on Kuwait had sent oil prices soaring and the U.S. to war. The S&L crisis was rocking the credit markets. Housing prices were plummeting. Consumer confidence was severely shaken.

Not the best time to be predicting the greatest bull market in history.

Yet we did it…
