He predicted Japan’s 1989 economic collapse, the dotcom AND subprime busts, as well as the populist wave that brought Brexit and Donald Trump…all well before the mainstream media.
Now controversial economist and bestselling author Harry Dent returns with a chilling warning for Australia…
You shouldn’t lose sleep over an Australian recession, according to renowned economic futurist Harry Dent. You should be worried about a Depression.
One-in-three unemployment…Australian house prices halving…real GDP nosediving 10% in a year…
How could that POSSIBLY happen?
Because, in the words of Dent:
‘The folly of central bank policies are about to become painfully clear. And the greatest bubble in modern history is about to finally burst — between now and late 2022.’
In his new MUST-READ book Zero Hour, Dent shows that we’re about to enter a global ‘Economic Winter’…one which could put Australia’s economy into a deep freeze for five years or more…
You’ll learn what Dent sees coming…
And the sequence of events that could occur as ‘Zero Hour’ unfolds…
So you can formulate your own investing plan AROUND this sequence…
For instance, Zero Hour will show you Harry Dent’s Trade That Could Rule the 2020s — and it’s NOT stocks (page 255)…
The ‘chaos currency’ to own in the coming crack-up (page 267)…
Why you need a ‘safe cash stash’ to handle Zero Hour financial emergencies (page 269)…
The one little-followed emerging market economy that could soar as Western economies crumble after Zero Hour (page 272)…
Why you should consider betting AGAINST gold between 2020 and 2022 (page 269)…and much more…
On page 98 of my new book, Zero Hour, I make a rather bold claim:
If we don’t see a worldwide financial crisis to rival the Great Depression by early 2020, ‘I’ll quit my profession and become a limo driver on the Gold Coast of Australia.’
Four fundamental cycles are about to converge.
They have only done so twice in the last century.
First, at the outset of the Great Depression.
Second, in the early to mid-1970s.
Both times an economic crisis of epic proportions swept across the world.
In October 1929, on what became known as Black Thursday, the American stock market started a hellish four-day crash.
And then just kept on falling…
If you owned an average portfolio of Dow Jones Industrial Average stocks between 1929 and 1932, you’d have suffered a life-wrecking loss of -89%.
Investors around the world suffered similar losses.
The question many are asking right now is this…
Is the world lining up for a similar catastrophic, once-in-a-lifetime event?
The 1929 crash cost Americans alone more than the cost of America’s entire First World War effort.
And while the crash started in America, its ripple effects were felt profoundly here in Australia.
That 80%-plus share market wipeout was devastating in the early 1930s, but back then, in investment terms, it really only affected wealthy Australians.
Although, in terms of the overall economy, it affected everyone.
Exports plummeted, putting catastrophic downward pressure on wages. This resulted in crippling strikes…coal mining strikes in particular brought the economy to its knees.
And then came the tidal wave of layoffs. One in three Aussies found themselves out of work. Hundreds of thousands of people with no savings or work found themselves living on the streets and queuing for food.
Nothing has been seen like it since in Australian history.
But that could well be about to change…
My Name is Harry S Dent. And This Open Letter to All Australians Contains an Urgent Warning…
You may not have heard of me because, usually, my forecasts are America-centric.
Although, in the 1980s I correctly predicted that the Japanese economy — then the darling of the world — would enter a slowdown that would last at least a decade.
This was treated with extreme skepticism…but came to pass.
In the early 1990s I predicted the Dow Jones Industrial Average would hit 10,000.
Again, this was looked at with extreme doubt. But it happened.
I’m on record predicting both the 2000 dot-com bust and the populist wave that enabled Brexit and Donald Trump’s election.
Again, both predictions were met with skepticism.
So I’m no stranger to having many of my forecasts — which are primarily based on demographic cycles — being met with incredulity.
Or even scorn and ridicule.
I expect you might feel the same about the warning I have for you and your country, Australia.
But I feel duty-bound to write this letter to you today anyway.
I believe the biggest crash in history is coming to the global economy. And that will happen within two years. Between now and mid 2020.
As I’m about to explain, the epicenter of this new crisis…like so many economic crises that have come before…will be the United States of America.
But the flow-on effects of this looming crisis could smash over Australia like a tsunami.
As I show on page 203 of my book, the ‘high-end’ economies tend to collapse the fastest and hardest in ‘Zero Hour’ events. And Australia is right up there in the top five…
I believe your property market, for instance, is very much like Manhattan’s right at the dawn of the 1930s. Real estate there dropped 64%. It took until 1954 — 21 years — to return to bubble highs.
Can you imagine that happening in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth?
Look…if I’m right, it would hit Australians hard.
Harder, perhaps, than it will hit my fellow Americans back home.
I’m not going to mince my words here…
I think Australia is not just heading for a recession. But a new Great Depression.
That is my new forecast.
I believe Australia could find itself in a period just like the 1930s, in the next two to five years.
I know that sounds extreme.
As Australian business confidence tumbled after the 1929 stock market wipeout, Australia racked up an incredible 32% unemployment rate. (And in an era where there were no jobless benefits…you had to simply fend for yourself…)
To see a repeat of that in your near future might seem unimaginable.
That’s five times your current unemployment rate.
That couldn’t possibly happen in the early 2020s, could it?
All I ask is that you hear me out.
And then decide for yourself.
Like 1929, I believe the root cause of the next great crash is going to be America.
But if I’m correct, it could unleash AUSTRALIA’S worst economic catastrophe in almost 90 years.
I see a wealth wipeout of epic proportions in store for Australia.
It is for this reason that I’m writing you this letter now…
Because a new American-generated crisis — far, far greater than the subprime debacle and the dotcom mania combined — could be about to erupt.
In America, it could cause the greatest social, economic and political upheaval since the American Revolution.
Australia — as I demonstrate on page 210 of Zero Hour — is one of the prime bubble economies that could lose the most if this spread occurs.
I expect many to laugh away this prediction.
In past years, every time I speak down in Oz (and I visit frequently) the local economists and journalists attack me viciously when I tell them they’re on the verge of a crushing real estate collapse.
But a curious thing has happened of late…
When I spoke there in late May 2017, I found that many more local experts admitted that the country definitely has a bubble.
When I did a press tour there more recently, in February and March this year, there was almost no pushback. The question just seemed to be when the bust would come, and how much it would hurt.
When you see old opponents who would regularly laugh and argue at my predictions just grimacing and nodding, you know the endgame is approaching…
Because my prediction of a worldwide depression, rather than just a deep recession, IS extreme. I get that.
And it’s so counter to the narrative that Australia is an ‘invincible, Miracle Economy’.
When I wrote in 1989, when the Dow was 2,500, that the market index would eclipse 6,000 to 8,000 by 2006, people thought I was nuts.
We’d just had the 1987 share wipeout and its brutal aftermath.
To mainstream analysts, there was nothing on the immediate horizon to indicate such a massive boom.
But at the time I based my prediction on American consumption, driven by the Baby Boomers and emerging technologies.
I was right. The doubters were wrong.
However, I get that when you see the biggest global economic crisis since the Great Depression looming on the horizon, you need to give your analysis.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary research.
So please do read on…
What did Janet Yellen say on June 27, 2017? That we will not see another financial crisis ‘in our lifetimes’. Sounds like Irving Fisher just before the 1929 crash: ‘Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau.’
There are plenty of people — a growing chorus, actually — who are now convinced the nine year central bank-driven boom is ending. And a sizeable correction is coming.
But virtually NO ONE sees what I believe is REALLY in store…
I believe we are about see the coming together of several cycles that caused earth-shattering events the last time they converged.
Blood in the streets...in America AND Australia…
That sounds like hyperbole. So I don’t blame you if you’re skeptical.
All I ask is that you read my research carefully, and make your own judgment. If you find it compelling, you should consider taking several vital precautions now, or you could be in for a world of pain…
Which is why I want to get a digital copy of my new book, Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Upheaval in Modern History to Your Advantage, into your hands as soon as possible…
I said the coming crisis is America-based.
Let me explain what I mean by that…
The Next American Civil War
You’ve possibly been watching the events in America from the other side of the world with a growing sense of unease.
Let me tell you now…
The partisan Right and Left media is telling only half the story…
We Americans were taught in school that the Civil War ended with Confederate General Robert Lee’s surrender at Appomattox in 1865.
The reality is…
The second phase of the ‘War Between the States’ has already begun.
You see, ‘Civil War I’ — like First World War — was just the preamble to a second, much WIDER conflict.
We may not see armed fighting with guns and tanks, at least not right away.
But we ARE seeing the first rumblings of Civil War II.
Antifa…Occupy Wall Street...The ‘alt right’…Charlottesville...Black Lives Matter...
Recent indictments of Trump campaign officials for alleged collusion with Russia…
And believe me, I think it’s going to get worse.
A LOT worse.
Americans are more divided than ever, which is why the 2016 US presidential election was the ugliest, most heated ever…
But the election is just another symptom of the most radical polarisation in US politics since the Civil War.
Look at this chart from Pew Research and you’ll see what I mean…
Source: Pew Research
We went from about a 10% difference in ideology between the average Democrat and Republican in 2004…to 35% just 10 years later!
And between the most politically engaged, the differential is almost 55%, with the majority of each party on the extreme right or left.
Now look at this map of the 2016 election.
Source: Dent Research
You probably didn’t need to see this to know what it says...Left and Right have hunkered down into their warring camps.
But this is about MUCH more than red versus blue.
It’s upper class versus lower class.
It’s the American worker — white collar and blue collar — versus globalisation.
It’s a scared citizenry versus terrorist organisations like ISIS.
It’s young versus old over entitlements.
It’s third world versus first world countries.
It’s people from all walks of life saying, ‘Enough is enough!’
Check out this chart…
Source: Pew Research
This shows that American liberals despise Donald Trump so much that 55% say that if a friend of theirs voted for Trump, it would actually strain their friendship!
But this polarisation isn’t just happening in the US.
In today’s world, we’re so connected that everyone now hates almost everyone else!
Ethnic minorities versus majorities…radical Islamists versus ‘infidels’…globalists versus nationalists…
You name it, we’re seeing it play out almost everywhere...
- Terrorist incidents exploding across Europe and the US…
- Brexit, and a near-miss ‘Frexit’…
- Catalonians voting to secede from Spain…
- Shiites fighting Sunnis fighting Kurds in the Middle East…
These aren’t isolated conflicts.
They’re the beginnings of a worldwide revolution in politics, economics…everything.
We’re talking top-down management…establishment and special interest politics…social engineering…monetary manipulation…wealthy elitism…
This isn’t just a global civil war…
It’s a global Revolutionary War!
And I’ve seen it coming for decades now...
What Economists and Political Elites Miss…
As I said, my name is Harry Dent.
Although I have an MBA from Harvard, and have consulted to numerous Fortune 100 companies, and have a record for picking every major economic event of the last 30 years…I still have to work hard to be taken seriously when making forecasts of this nature.
I frequently appear in front of American viewers of Good Morning America, PBS, CNBC, CNN and Fox News.
I’m accustomed to incredulous pushback from financial news anchors.
But, as I say, that pushback was decidedly more muted when I visited Australia earlier this year. That tour was covered by The Sydney Morning Herald, News.com.au, Smartcompany.com.au and MacroBusiness.
Even in my interview with the often-positive bull Peter Switzer on his On the Money show, I detected a lot less optimism.
Old foes seemed much closer to the same page as me.
And that’s telling…
Still, I’m making a huge claim here.
Even bigger than many of the bears out there in the news.
I’m predicting a far, FAR greater global downturn than what happened after the GFC.
So big that it could wreck people’s futures.
But it could also create a new wealth revolution coming out of the other side (I explain more about that in my book…)
But why should you listen to me?
Well, those who know me know I’m not backwards in coming forward talking about my record.
Yes, I’ve gotten some things wrong. For instance, if you Google my tour of Australia in 2015, you’ll see I called for a massive real estate crash then. It still hasn’t happened.
Peter Switzer brought that up in our last interview. But, as I told him:
‘If you can find a single economist that has called as many major shifts like the collapse of Japan, the tech boom of the 90s, the top of the real estate market…WE CALLED THAT RIGHT ON. We called the top of the tech bubble.
‘This bubble has been harder to call…because GOVERNMENTS are primarily generating it. And governments not only put money in to keep the bubble going…when the stock market crashes 10% or 12%, the Federal Reserve just steps in and buys it to drive it back up!
‘When the Chinese has their second stock bubble burst in 2015 the Chinese government bought the stock market to drive it back up!
‘THAT’S CHEATING. This is an artificial market’.
Look, I’ll say (with little humility, I’ll admit) that there is no one better than me at picking natural turns in economic cycles.
There’s a reason my forecasts regularly appear in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week and The Wall Street Journal.
But this one has been my greatest challenge.
Because the bubble has gone on longer and higher than any bubble in history.
That is not a reason to be skeptical of my predictions.
It’s a reason for you to take them more seriously than ever.
The higher a bubble goes, it makes sense that the farther it’s going to go down.
That may seem overly simplistic. But that’s often how it works.
I’ll admit I’m not the most orthodox economist.
You see, ‘conventional’ economists tend to look at simple things like government, the Fed, jobs data etc…
But I see another, much more powerful force at work...
Social, demographic, political and economic cycles.
You can’t see them. And you can’t touch them.
Mainstream economists and their cohorts in the political establishment ignore them.
But my research shows that they’re behind every major movement and crisis in history, no matter how hard governments try to stop them.
In fact, cycles create those big unexpected events that some people call ‘black swans.’
Only there’s no such thing as a ‘black swan.’
This is just a convenient tag to pin on something ‘government and economic experts’ don’t see coming…because they don’t understand cycles.
But I believe these cycles are behind every so-called ‘black swan’ in recent times…
- The Black Monday stock crash of 1987
- The dismantling of the Berlin Wall (1989)
- The Asian financial crisis (1997)
- The Dot-com crash (2000)
- The September 11 attacks (2001)
- Lehman Brothers collapse (2008)
- Brexit and Trump’s election (2016)
And when two or more cycles converge, they produce the truly epic events of history…
- Martin Luther and his ‘95 Theses’ (1517)
- The Mayflower setting sail from England (1620)
- The American Revolution (1765–1783)
- The US Civil War (1861–1865)
- The First World War (1914–1918)
- The Great Depression (1929–1939)
- The Second World War (1939–1945)
- The Great Recession (2007–2009)
We’re at a Rare Moment in History
Right now, three mega-cycles — or ‘Harbingers of Revolution’ — are converging in a once-every-250-year event.
Very little good can come from this event.
It is based mainly on four demographic and geopolitical cycles. If it plays out as we predict, it could create a ghastly global crisis. And potentially, a dark ‘Economic Winter’ in Australia.
Why Australia, in particular?
And what ripple effects — besides a nationwide economic crisis — is Australia going to experience?
We’ll get to those shortly.
First, let’s look at the historical and global convergence that Andy and I call Zero Hour.
Source: Dent Research
Harbinger #1 — The 28-Year Financial Crisis Cycle
This cycle last bottomed in 1933, when we saw the highest unemployment in US history and the worst of the worldwide Great Depression.
The next bottom hit in 1961, with twin recessions in 1960 and 1962.
Then we got the recession and savings-and-loan crisis of 1990–91 (shortly after the bottom in 1989).
And finally, we get…
A 227% rise in the US stock market since 2009.
What will happen if or when this fourth major surge since 1983 ends?
Source: Yahoo Finance
Harbinger #2 — The 84-Year Populist Movement Cycle
This cycle is easy to see today, because we’re witnessing uprisings and riots seemingly almost daily.
It started with Brexit, and the election of Donald Trump in late 2016.
Devastated by one bubble bursting after the next — all while watching the wealthiest one percent run away with 50% of the money — the middle class was ripe for revolt.
And here’s where it gets scary…
The rise of Hitler as German chancellor in January 1933 — and Trump as US president in January 2017 — occurred exactly 84 years apart!
And guess what Hitler’s whole appeal was?
Make Germany great again!
No, I’m NOT calling Trump the next Hitler…I’m just demonstrating this cycle and how precisely it tracks populist movements — and this clearly is one.
Roughly 84 years before Hitler, it was Karl Marx, who inspired populist revolts against the European aristocracy.
And 84 years before that, it was the passing of the Stamp Act in 1765, which set the scene for the American Revolution 11 years later.
On that note…
Harbinger #3 — The 250-Year Revolutionary Cycle
This last hit in the 1760s.
The Boston Tea Party, the First Continental Congress, the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War — along with the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and modern free-market capitalism — all followed in rapid succession.
These global paradigm shifts have so far occurred once every 250 years like clockwork!
For example, 250 years prior, in the early 1500s, we had Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation…
More than a religious movement, the Reformation ushered in a broad social and political revolution against medieval feudalism and the dominant Catholic Church…laying the foundation for modern democracy and human rights.
250 years prior, in the late 1200s, we had the voyages of Marco Polo.
Maps based on Polo’s travels to East Asia inspired Columbus to set out across the Atlantic, hoping to find a western sea route to India and China.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Each revolution builds on the last one…
Which means the NEXT revolution is shaping up to potentially be epic in size and scope.
Now, the theory of history repeating is as old as time itself.
One of the clearest examples of cycles repeating can be observed in the Chinese Dynastic Cycle.
We have written records that of three thousand years of unbroken Chinese history which shows a repetitive rise and fall of dynasties.
But to be clear, cycles are not foolproof.
I don’t want to give you the impression the future is written in stone. It’s not. There are no guarantees.
They are a guideline.
And right now we don’t just have the Revolutionary Cycle hitting, my analysis shows…WE COULD HAVE ALL THREE.
A ‘perfect storm’ of major social, political, and economic convulsions at every level…
- A major economic collapse and a deflationary economic crisis like we last saw in the 1930s.
- A second real estate bust, leaving millions of Americans (and, as I’ll show you in a moment, Australians) deep underwater on their mortgages.
- The United States breaking into red and blue ‘common market’ zones, with some states actually seceding to form their own independent republics. (I know that seems hard to believe. But read my book and I’ll demonstrate how this is not just possible, but probable…)
- An entire overhaul of the global financial system.
- The world map redrawn to finally correct the ‘errors’ of the colonial era.
- A ‘bottoms-up’ revolution to the very way we do business. Goodbye top-down bureaucrats everywhere!
And more changes we can’t yet imagine.
What my co-author, Andrew Pancholi says is true:
‘The more cycles that arrive at the party, the rowdier it gets!’
So How Does This Help YOU?
You probably sense we’re at some kind of juncture…
Asset prices just aren’t rising like they have been.
Australian property is teetering.
Trump and his actions and statements are becoming increasingly unhinged.
Outright conflict between America and Russia actually seems plausible again for the first time in decades.
Things are not looking good.
Anyone can see that.
But things are worse than they seem at first glance…
America has been stalling the coming economic crisis for years.
Instead of dealing with the global financial crisis of 2008, the American Federal Reserve just printed a bunch of money and tried to blow their way out of it.
Central banks around the world followed suit.
And made the bubble worse.
After the GFC, we didn’t have a Great Depression. Even though the models called for it.
So with this next crisis, I believe we’re just going to get hit harder.
I’m convinced that the combination of cheap money, inflated debt, declining demographics and politics, could ultimately lead to a collapse worse than any we’ve ever seen.
As mentioned, I recently completed a tour of Australia in February and March.
And I’m convinced of something else…
That this collapse is going to hit Australia harder than many other nations.
Sydney’s real estate bubble, for instance, began to inflate exponentially in 2001.
It’s taken 17 years to advance well over three times.
Like San Francisco, Sydney was already expensive BEFORE the bubble.
Now it’s just ludicrous.
Same in Melbourne and Brisbane.
There was a big decline in Perth house prices because of the mining slowdown, but now they seem on the way up again.
As I show on page 211 of Zero Hour, my model suggests a brutal slide in Sydney real estate until 2032–33. That’s 15 years of straight decline if 2018 is the peak.
That’s part of what I mean when I say that, in some aspects, Australia could be hit EVEN HARDER than the root cause of the next crash, America.
As I told Australian Property Investor, Australia’s ‘real estate bubble is like a popcorn popper with different markets frothing over and peaking at different times, but all will burst ultimately.’
Less bearish economists in Australia suggest that if there is a house price correction, it is more likely in the 10–20% range.
I think if that’s all that happens, Australians can count themselves extremely lucky.
I understand why some Aussie economic commentators have taken issue with my forecast for Australia and called it outlandish.
You guys have lived in a recession-free bubble for so long.
There are grown adults who’ve live their whole life never experiencing falling property prices. Stagnating economic growth, and spiraling unemployment.
But knowing when the big cycles come together is critical. And knowing what to do at key points in these cycles is even more important…
That’s why I brought in my co-author, Andrew Pancholi.
His research, as you’ll see when you get your copy of Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Upheaval in Modern History to Your Advantage, includes cycles that predict likely turning points down to the month, the week and even the day.
For example, in 2014, Andy flew across the Atlantic to warn me about the collapse of the euro…to within a handful of ticks. And it bottomed within a few days of when he said it would.
And that’s how the idea for this book came about…
Zero Hour is your playbook to guide you through the revolutionary step-change we see coming.
Look, revolutions are cyclical.
They run on a very specific timetable.
As the end of the decade draws near, we are approaching an extremely rare convergence of low points for multiple political, economic, and demographic cycles. If history repeats (which isn’t guaranteed), the result could be a major economic collapse and global upheaval that would dwarf the Great Recession of the 2000s — and maybe even that of the 1930s.
As you’ll see in my book, we explain that Europe is getting ready to blow. China is going to blow too; and if China blows, there would be nothing that Europe, the US and the central banks could do to offset it.
My new book shows you how to deal with an event such as this.
You’ll learn why the most-hyped technologies of recent years (self-driving cars, artificial intelligence and virtual reality) won’t pay off until the 2030s. Why China’s economic growth won’t lead to the wealth most in the mainstream predict.
And one niche part of the economy that I believe will thrive, even during a historic economic collapse.
I’ve been studying cycles for almost 40 years, but even I learned something when I met Andrew Pancholi.
Andy is the director and chief strategist of Cycles Analysis, portfolio manager at Fidelis Capital Management, and author of the acclaimed newsletter The Market Timing Report.
Last year at my research firm’s ‘Irrational Economic Summit’, we talked for hours about everything from A–Z. And I knew right then and there we had to combine our expertise.
The result is our new book, Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Upheaval in Modern History to Your Advantage.
It’s our way of trying to help you through what we see as the coming revolution.
The aim of Zero Hour is to try to help you turn the upheaval ahead to your advantage, so you can be prepared.
Because there’s something you need to understand…
The ‘gloom-and-doomers’ are WRONG.
This WON’T be the ‘end of the world’.
Just the end of the world as we know it.
Let me explain…
PART 1 — The Forces Driving the Revolution
In Part 1, you’ll understand why Andy and I are predicting this world-changing revolution, and what it could mean for Australia.
Here you’ll discover…
- Why ‘cycle blindness’ will mean MILLIONS around the world will be blindsided by what’s about to happen…and how to remove your blindfold. [page 3]
- Why states that elected Trump will NOT be on the winning side of history, and who WILL be. (Hint: It’s why the South lost the Civil War). [page 56]
- The coming European crack-up, why it could result in TWO Euros, AND how it could impact Australia. [page 8]
- Why the worst of the economic storm could hit Australian shores no later than early 2020. [page 13]
- ECONOMIC WINTER IS COMING: Why we’re about to move much deeper into the most intense phase of the Economic Winter Season in my 80-year Economic Cycle. And why with it comes an once-in-a-lifetime great reset of debt and asset bubbles and the emergence of a whole new economy, as occurred in the 1930s. [page 22].
- Why today’s CEOs are like French nobles BEFORE they were guillotined…and what you must do NOW if you run a business (large or small)! [page 137]
- Plus, the one cycle that proves this is NOT the ‘end of the world’ (or America, or Australia), as some of my bearish colleagues would have us believe. [page 98]
PART 2 — The Invisible yet Obvious Bubble
In Part 2, we show you how to prepare for the first shock: the bursting of the greatest economic bubble in modern history.
Now we give you the ‘heads up’…
- ‘In the near term, Australia and New Zealand will be hit harder…’ [page 299]
- The ABSOLUTE worst case scenario for Australian house prices as Zero Hour plays out. [page 201]
- The unique ticking time bomb at the heart of the Aussie economy. As you’ll see in the book, when this bomb explodes ‘it’ll wallop Australia’s export economy as well as its real estate market’. [page 212]
- The Black Swan Myth: Why this term was created by ‘experts’ to be an excuse for not seeing the end of a bubble. As I explain in Year Zero, all busts that have come before and will come after, are totally predictable. And I’ve created the prototype that helps us see how these events will could unfold, years in advance. It’s called my bubble model. And I outline it fully. [page 177]
- How low could main centre Aussie house prices drop after Zero Hour? This will scare you even more… [page 201]
- Worst still, one country in the world could suffer a harrowing 78% to 85% drop in real estate prices!! And it’s a country with which Australian is inextricably linked. [page 213]
- ‘When even Australian economists finally start to admit that they have a bubble, it’s probably closer still.’ [page 213]
- The MASSIVE silver lining for Antipodeans! Why out of the ashes of Zero Hour a new, different and specific bubble will emerge where Australia and New Zealand will be ‘clear beneficiaries’. [page 299]
PART 3 — How To be a Beneficiary from the Greatest Revolution and Economic Crisis since the Late 1700s
In Part 3, Andy and I show you that there won't just be financial losers when ‘The Great Reset’ hits and the ‘New Golden Age’ begins…
Here’s where you’ll learn…
- One ‘humdrum’, non-stock market related investment that could hand you the Trade of the Decade…and when you should pounce. It DOUBLED in the 1930s — smack dab in the middle of the Great Depression. And this time it could take off even faster. [page 255]
- The NEXT commodity superstars. One big plus for Australia is cycles indicate that when this crisis ends, a new, perhaps even more explosive commodity cycle begins. Who will be the winners and losers? Getting an idea of this could help you lay down the bargain of a lifetime… [page 285]
- ALERT! Gold bugs are WRONG! When deflation sets in, like it did in the early 1930s, gold could easily drop by HALF in just a few years or less! Here’s how to bet on gold’s downside for the most stunning returns. [page 267]
- The six ‘gainer and sustainer’ economies that should fare best after Zero Hour hits. [page 297]
- The ‘sleeping giant’ set to be the greatest driver of global growth for (Hint: it’s not China or Brazil). [page 281]
- Australia’s demographic surge (and whether it’s a plus or a minus in the next crisis) [page 299]
Other critical survival tools you’ll find in Zero Hour include…
- The secret (and VERY controversial) cycle that nailed 11 out of 11 major financial crises all the way back to the early 1800s. … [page 114]
- Bigger than Uber, Airbnb…maybe even Facebook. The biggest ‘disrupter industry’ of the next 50 years that could emerge from Year Zero. [page 4]
- Baby Boomers are the engine of the US economy now, right? WRONG! They could cause the greatest economic collapse we’ve ever seen! (Hint: It’s also why they pushed us into the Great Recession in 2007). [page 88]
- When the ‘longevity revolution’ will REALLY begin. Imagine having two sets of kids (one in your 30s and another in your 60s — to get it ‘right’) and not even wanting to retire until you’re 100-plus. [page 82]
- When America’s Civil War II will break out. Ironically, the more Trump succeeds, the more states could bolt. [page 223]
This book is all about guiding you through the revolution ahead.
To help you understand the key cycles that drive economic growth, innovation and progress…
WHY major shifts like the Great Depression and major booms like the Roaring 20s and the recent 1983–2007 bull market happen…and WHEN they could happen.
All thanks to the predictive power of cycles.
In fact, the first book I ever published was called Our Power to Predict.
That remains as true today as it was when I wrote it in 1989 and predicted the simultaneous collapse of Japan and the greatest boom in history in the US and the rest of the world. And now with Andrew at my side, we have better and more integrated cycles research than ever!
Winston Churchill once said, ‘The longer you can look back, the farther you can look forward.’
It’s a timeless truth, yet most people are foolish enough to ignore it.
But when YOU are aware of the cycles, it’s quicker to take the steps to prosper as these social and economic forces roll over us.
Events are accelerating rapidly, which is why I urge you to get your personal copy of Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Upheaval in Modern History to Your Advantage today.
You can either ride the wave of the future, or get pounded into the sand.
It’s totally up to you.
And if you’ve never read our work before…
Here’s What Some Other ‘Politically Incorrect Visionaries’ Say…
‘Whether you are an investor or interested observer you will want to read how Harry Dent and Andrew Pancholi clash with and challenge many well known views, including mine on interest rates. Regardless of whether you agree with their line of reasoning or not, you will benefit from reading their new book, evaluating their arguments and learning their perspective on a great many issues vital to our economic future.’
Dr Lacy Hunt
VP, Hoisington Investment Management Company
‘In my book Trumped I saw good things about his new bold policies, but some much greater dangers and a lack of reality about our financial and political challenges. Harry Dent is actually making a credible argument for why this could literally turn into a modern day civil war and split between the red and blue states — and he sees a similar revolution in many places around the world. Put on your seatbelts! Don’t miss this very factual and controversial book.’
Former Reagan Administration Budget Director
Author of The Great Deformation and founder of David Stockman’s Contra Corner
‘Harry S. Dent, Jr. is known for his investment-related vision and innovation. He saw the collapse of Japan in 1989 just before it happened and now he sees another major financial and political crisis ahead in the United States. In this book, Harry outlines the great political and financial revolution that is just beginning and traces it back to the birth of democracy. I’m running for governor of Connecticut and plan to be a part of this revolution by showing how to turn around the Constitution State so it can be a model for other states and the U.S. government to follow.’
Former US Comptroller General
‘In our respective research, Harry S. Dent, Jr. and I have been warning our readers about the unprecedented and unsustainable global and U.S. debt build up for over a decade now. We both agree that a ‘great reset’ is inevitable at this point, and will destroy much of our financial assets, banks, and businesses. But Harry adds a deeper political revolution from his and Andy Pancholi’s impressive cycle work, which has clearly already begun. A must-read book!’
Co-author of Code Red
‘Harry S. Dent, Jr. makes a very compelling argument that technology and globalization have progressed so much that they have put sectors of society at each other’s throats. It is an important insight that globalization could retreat for decades to come. As always, Harry brings fresh new insights and clarity to a seemingly unpredictable and complex economy. Zero Hour is a must-read book if you want to navigate the greatest political divide since the Civil War.’

First are two must-read reports that focus in on Australia’s situation. They are called The Ultimate Resource Crunch and Real Estate Bubble 2.0: Why Even Australia Can’t Escape the Real Estate Bust This Time.
Gold bugs and gold sceptics alike will get a lot out of a third report, A ‘Haven’ for the Gold Bust.
EVERYTHING is in a bubble right now. And I mean everything: including gold.
If you think either gold OR bitcoin is going to protect you from the upcoming bloodbath… well, you’re in for a nasty surprise. Just look what happened in 2008…
While most gold investors believe the yellow metal’s value should skyrocket during times of financial crisis, history suggests otherwise.
As markets around the world began to unravel in 2008, gold actually fell 33%.
Gold and silver would go on to rally to new highs, but I again accurately identified when precious metals bubble would burst. I issued a strong sell signal on April 25th, 2011… the exact day silver prices peaked, and just a few months before gold’s eventual crash.
So, what could happen next? And what do I believe could be a far better save haven than gold in the next crisis? It’s all in A ‘Haven’ for the Gold Bust.
Finally, you’ll also get instant access to another essential report. It’s called The New American Civil War.
You can’t talk about the global economic bubble without talking about the precarious state of American society. They are very much linked.
In my view the American government is only prolonging and worsening the inevitable crash.
It’s absolutely essential that you understand why this is.
Governments around the world are trying to prevent the obvious: A natural generational down cycle, like we saw from 1969 to '82 and from 1930 to '42.
This happens every 40 years, and we shouldn't prevent these cycles.
We should let them happen and clear the decks of debt and excess capacity and bad companies to get efficient and prepare for the next generational boom. Global governments, led by America’s, are not doing that.
Its answer has been to interfere with endless quantitative easing, infrastructure spending and globalization — but it's all starting to fail.
Globalization has peaked. The second big surge from World War II into recently has peaked. And American society is breaking apart. The New American Civil War zeros in on this crack-up… and what might happen next.
You get EVERYTHING above, simply by trying monthly newsletter, The Boom & Bust Letter
I’m pleased to announce that, for the first time, I’m releasing The Boom & Bust Letter to an Australian audience.
I’ve made sure the annual subscription to The Boom & Bust Letter is tiny.
Just $59 per year.
That’s less than a meal out for one at a decent restaurant.
You’ll get a digital copy of Zero Hour, plus the other resources I’ve just listed, included in that $59.
AND it all comes with a 30-day trial period.
We’ll give you that $59 straight back if you let us know within the first 30 days.
And you can KEEP Zero Hour, and the rest of the package.
At $59-a-year per subscriber, this is clearly not a money-making exercise for me.
So, WHY AM I reaching out to Australians?
Because I think the biggest bubble ever is about to burst.
And I think Australian citizens could well be hit harder than those of many other nations.
This bubble is unlike any before it because governments have been unnaturally propping up the economy using quantitative easing.
Governments have poured money into the global economy. But it hasn’t gone to the average person, it’s going into financial institutions.
They leverage up at virtually 0% interest rates. And they pour this fake money into global asset prices.
That’s what’s driven prices to these levels.
This is a FAKE BOOM. And When It Busts, I Believe It Will Be Worse Than Anything Since the Depression…
It might not happen this next month. Or even this year.
But I believe it’s coming.
Zero Hour explains why, and what to do about it.
And The Boom & Bust Letter is an ongoing commentary designed to help you deal with these events before, during and after the coming bust.
Every month, you’ll get an in-depth look at unique economic indicators, global demographic trends, spending wave indicators, and other insights you won’t find in the Australian Financial Review, The Age, or the Financial Times.
The core of our work in The Boom & Bust Letter is what we call the Dent Method developed in the late 1980s.
The Dent Method has a documented record of success at forecasting long-term economic trends based on the study of and changes in demographic trends.
The Boom & Bust Letter applies this method to the economy on a monthly basis.
You’ll learn why at this point it’s EXTREMELY dangerous to be listening to the mainstream financial media…and what you should do instead (to capitalise on the predictive power of demographics and cycles).
And remember, with your The Boom & Bust Letter subscription and copy of Zero Hour, you’ll also receive…
- The 5 Day Forecast: Every week, you’ll receive our take on what’s going in the world’s economy and how you can stay ahead of the curve.

My first book The Great Boom Ahead put me on the map with breakthrough demographic indicators and forecasts that tagged the whole decade of the 1990s.
The Roaring 2000s sold over 800,000 copies and introduced its own breakthrough concept: the ‘network corporation,’ characterised by bottom-up, not top down, management.
Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Upheaval in Modern History to Your Advantage brings together all of the breakthroughs I’ve had over the years.
Just note that the Australian version of The Boom & Bust Letter does not contain investment advice or stock recommendations. The information we have to share is more important than random stock picks.
This is a true economic newsletter, designed to help you figure out and manage the ‘big picture’ events that I believe are set to occur, and could have a big impact on Australians, in the years ahead.
This is where the rubber meets the road…
Will you be prepared to take advantage when this global revolution comes?
For just $59-a-year, you’ll get access to the all the life-changing information inside Zero Hour, along with all the extra bonuses I’ve just laid out to help you along the way.
I want to see you emerge on the other side of this revolution better than you started.
