Publisher Comments:

andlt;Bandgt;In andlt;/Bandgt;his most recent andlt;Iandgt;New York Times andlt;/Iandgt;bestselling book, andlt;Iandgt;The Great Depression Ahead, andlt;/Iandgt;Harry S. Dent, Jr., predicted that the stimulus plan created in response to the first crisis would hit demographic and debt saturation headwinds and ultimately fail. In 2010, the stimulus plan had started to fail, and it was already stalling by the first quarter of 2011. andlt;Iandgt;The Great Crash Ahead andlt;/Iandgt;outlines why the next crash and crisis is inevitable, and just around the cornerand#8212;coming between 2012 and 2014. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;With incisive critical analysis and historical examples, this book lays bare the traditional assumptions of economics. Dent shows that the government doesnand#8217;t drive our economy, consumers and businesses do; that the Fed does not create most of the money in our economy, the private banking system does; and that the largest generation in history is now saving for or moving into retirement, meaning slowing growth. This is the new normal! Our banking system borrowed to lend for the first time in history with unprecedented leverage and debt levels of $42 trillion, way beyond the massive government debt. But the governmentand#8217;s promises and unfunded liabilities take the cake, at an estimated $66 trillion and growing! andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;These massive debts will have to be restructured in a time of slowing spending, and this means a deflationary crisis, which is very different from the inflationary crisis of the 1970s and requires very different personal, investment, and business strategies. Dent and Johnson outline these strategies in very practical detail. In the coming years, the greatest surprise will be that the U.S. dollar becomes the safe haven and appreciates just when everyone is calling for it to crash, while the gold and silver bubbles burst along with the stock and commodity bubbles. And real estate will see another round of declines just when everyone thought it could go no lower. andlt;Iandgt;The Great Crash Ahead andlt;/Iandgt;is about making smart, cautious investmentsand#8212;avoiding the sort of high-risk, high-profit investment schemes that sank the world economy. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The road to recovery will be filled with challenges and will require massive change, such as debt restructuring, plans for greater employment, the restructuring of social welfare programs such as social security and health care, budget cuts, and higher taxesand#8212;in short, a revision of the kind of lifestyle that characterized the and#8220;Roaring 2000s.and#8221; The good news is this process will eliminate tens of trillions of dollars of debt and can make way for growth again as the echo boom generation ascends. Or we can continue on our present course and end up like the Japanese, with no growth and high debt two decades later.

Review:

"With little attempt to soften the blow, Dent (The Great Depression Ahead) and Johnson use demographics to predict that the Dow Jones Industrial Average will drop to approximately 3,000 between late 2012 and late 2014, while house prices will fall between 55% and 65% before the crisis ends. At the end of their spending lifecycle, aging Baby Boomers are avoiding conspicuous consumption and heavy credit card debt, and saving for retirement, rather than investing in college educations, or making large real estate purchases. By the time readers absorb the theory of seasons of inflation over an 80-year cycle, problems with the Fed, and unfunded liabilities in all strata of government, they may feel that the best place for their money is in a sock under the mattress. However, Dent and Johnson offer suggestions for surviving the next decade, as well as a few simple (perhaps obvious) ideas to solve national problems, including Social Security and the mortgage crisis.

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of The Roaring 2000s and The Great Depression Ahead comes a book that looks forward, showing readers how to weather the storm in this new economy that is going to get much worse in the years ahead.

In his most recent New York Times bestselling book, The Great Depression Ahead, Harry S. Dent predicted the debt crisis that would ensue in the wake of the government’s failed stimulus plan. In The Great Deflation Ahead Dent scrutinizes some of the most dearly held assumptions of economic theory and practice and offers prescriptions for the current crisis. With incisive critical analysis and historical examples, Dent lays bare how such constructs—for instance, the belief in a rational market or of the rational consumer—led to the formation of the great bubble that burst so spectacularly in the crash of 2008.

Dent’s investment advice sees no place to hide in what he calls this wintry economic season, but it’s not all doom and gloom; the only way out is preserving your capital and creating cash flow—avoiding the sort of high risk, high profit investment schemes that sunk the world economy—so that you can profit from “the greatest sale on financial assets of a lifetime.” The Great Deflation Ahead is a level headed, thoroughly reasoned message to show readers how they can survive during this challenging period so that they can thrive when the economy slowly returns to normal.
