Publisher's Summary

For over 15 years, New York Times best-selling author Harry S. Dent, Jr. has been uncannily accurate in predicting the financial future. In his three previous works, Dent predicted the financial recession of the early 90s, the economic expansion of the mid-90s, and the financial free-for-all of 1998-2000.
The Next Great Bubble Boom offers a comprehensive forecast for the next two decades, showing new models for predicting the future behavior of the economy, inflation, large and small cap stocks, bonds, key sectors, and more. Dent gives advice on everything from investment strategies to real estate cycles, and shows not only how bright our future will be, but how best to profit from it.
Dent gives us something to look forward to, including:

The Dow hitting 40,000 by the end of the decade
The Nasdaq advancing at least 10 times from October 2001 lows to around 13,500, and potentially as high as 20,000 by 2009
Another strong advance in stocks in 2005 with a significant correction into around September/October 2006
The Great Boom willl resurge into its final and strongest stage in 2007, and even more fully in 2008, lasting untill late 2009 to early 2010
In The Next Bubble Boom, Dent reveals how the economic growth of the late 1990s was a prelude to the great boom around the corner and how all of us can reap its benefits.

Difficult to listen to

this book is very technical and difficult to listen to. The ideas and the reasoning is ok, but everything is based on analysis of past events and the assumption that booms and busts will happen under the same circumstances, and in the same way as they did 200 years ago. The author claims that booms and busts can be predicted and will happen acording to a specified timeplan, almost like the movement of the stars. The weakest point in this book is that it doesn?t consider other factors such as international trade, trends, public opinion, war, terrorism etc. Maybe he?s right and these factors will have no notable influence on the global economic situation. We wil know in year 2012.

This sounded like a broken record

I was hoping for some insight, but if you listened to the first 2 or 3 minutes you pretty much get the jist of the book. The book makes the comparison between the the stock market crash of 1918-1921 to the crash of 2000-2002. It then says that like the 1922-1929 boom there will be another boom from 2005 to 2008 after which there will be a major crash. The book then goes on to repeat this message another 50 times. I was pretty much sick of this book after an hour and a half. If this boom-bust cycle had happened a bit more often in the past I might be inclined to believe the trend, however drawing the conclusions that he does from only one example in the past makes a very weak case for a coming boom...where suppossedly the DOW will hit 40,000 in the next 4-5 years.
