Harry Dent displays in this book an abstract all the money and demography figures that has been moving in the American economy and a little bit of figures from rest of the world. He doesn’t focus much on very specific event like many other finance writers but rather focuses on the big picture. He’s at times arrogant and emotional and you may notice how he has made the same mistakes as the conventional economists that he mocks, but overall he’s the guy who makes todays situation more understandable while using facts and staying away from ideologies.
And at the end, I must admit that his advice to face the crisis may not be the best, but maybe the safest and it’s because if you keep thinking to yourself when reading, you may have to admit that his models to predict the future is not totally reliable, like any other model. I have kept an eye on his ideas since early 2009 and must admit that he has already disappointed investors by keeping them out of stocks and commodities. Yet, you should listen to his disclosure of our world state and factors that really matter in economy that the media doesn’t make clear.

Sort of a more detailed take on Robert Prechters, Conquier the Crash, or Kondriateff theory or Elliot Wave theory. Eastering has a couple of good books on this as well.

By all means read the book but this author makes very many wrong predictions. His previous book "The Great Depression Ahead" was 1-2 years too late. If you followed his "sell everything" recommendation, you sold at precisely the wrong time.
