The Peak of Globalization and What Comes Next

Currently on Straight Talk Wealth Radio:

Everyone wants to knows what the election of Donald Trump foretells about the economy and the markets. However, going just a little deeper, I’m fascinated with the events and authors who have been foretelling of the success of Donald Trump. Because it seems to me that if you really understand those forces – the precursors that would have brought about Trump or somebody else in his place, then I figure I can better understand the inevitable outcomes.

2 Authors to Begin With – Harry S. Dent and David Stockman

In doing so, I have been digging into the work of 2 of my favorite authorities, starting of course with my friend, NY Times Bestselling author and renown market forecaster, Harry S. Dent. Harry has been analyzing the likelihood of President Trump at least since last June, 2016 when he published a brilliant infographic, 7 Startling Reasons Why ‘The Donald’ May Become President Trump.

And as ironic as it may sound to have elected a billionaire as a solution, the cause essentially comes down to the global “Wealth Gap”, and the fact that any recovery we may have seen since the Great Recession of 2008, has by far more greatly benefitted the wealthy and Wall Street, than it has the average american worker. And this very situation also generated the push on the far left with Bernie Sanders.

As I had been digging on this, Harry further articulated the big picture about this in his October publication of The Leading Edge, with his article of the same title as this blog and our most recent Straight Talk Wealth Radio episode.

(It’s a subscription publication, but I figure Harry won’t kill me for making it available when it’s two months old and I’m imploring you to subscribe, for your own benefit!)


So this week I rang Harry Up to do a little chatting about this all, and you can hear our conversation on this week’s show. CLICK HERE to listen to the podcast.

Now, About David Stockman

I just started reading Stockman’s brand new book, (it’s WAY LESS of a monster than his previous 2 1/2 lb 750 page The Great Deformation), entitled, TRUMPED: A Nation on the Brink of Ruin and How to Bring It Back. And if you think Stockman is a big trump fan, you will be sadly disappointed. Don’t forget, Stockman was the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under the Reagan Administration, and had the damn gumption to tell President Reagan that he too, like the later George w Bush, we spending like Democrats while taxing like Republicans – sure to bring the explode the National Debt and bring the country to it’s knees.

He’s been on the news quite a bit lately promoting his new book, but I thought I’d sign off this post with a video of his recent appearance on Fox Business News and one that I took a portion of and presented on our recent episode.

BUT HEY! Keep coming back to the blog. Every time we produce a new show I have some background on it here. Let’s keep this going, ok?

Stockman: Trump will take U.S. down economic abyss

Former OMB Director David Stockman on why he thinks some of President-elect Donald Trump’s economic policies are a ‘fiscal nightmare.’


Harry S. Dent is predicting that the Dow (DJIA) could drop to 3800 in the near future as America goes into a double-dip Depression!

Watch this 3-part in-depth interview with Harry Dent and Straight Talk Wealth Radio Host, Bruce Weide, and discover:

  • What is the basis of his forecasting? (See more below under “The Dent Method”)
  • Did the Baby Boom actually cause the current economic crisis?
  • Will American pull out of this recession soon? What can make things turn around?
  • How will the European Crisis end and what will its effects ultimately be on America?
  • Is our monetary system headed for hyper-inflation, or a deflationary depression?

In the early 1990′s during the George H.W. Bush recession, when things looked bleak and America had trouble reading Mr. Bush’s lips, Harry predicted that the coming decade was going into one of its most historic boom periods ever in his book The Great Boom Ahead.

In all of his past books since 1989, Dent saw an end to the Baby Boom spending cycle around the end of this decade. Currently asserting in his most recent book, The Great Crash Ahead, that “All major bubbles go back to where they started”, Mr. Dent is forecasting the DJIA to drop back into the 3000 range, within the next year or two.

Using exciting new research developed from years of hands-on business experience, Harry S. Dent, Jr. offers a refreshingly positive and understandable view of the economic future. As a best selling author on economics, Mr. Dent is the developer of The Dent Method – an economic forecasting approach based on changes in demographic trends.

The Dent Method: Economic forecasting based on changes in demographic trends

What is it? Why use it?

The Dent Method – a long term economic forecasting tool based on demographic trends – is used by Financial Advisors and individual investors to help predict the health of the economy as well as the stock markets years and decades in advance by identifying long-term trends that help build an overall financial picture.

The Dent Method claims that it has consistently proven that the age structure of the population has the power to influence consumption demand in a predictable, substantial and consistent manner.

Developed by economic expert Harry S. Dent, Jr. in the late 1980’s, The Dent Method offers a unique view of economic forecasting because it suggests that demographics and spending trends affect our economy, stock prices, inflation, interest rates, innovation cycles, new technologies, product and industry trends, real estate, immigration and domestic migration, and new business models for management and organization. This method also shows how to recognize and potentially profit from economic cycles, as well as helps pinpoint the best careers in growth industries, the best places to live, the hottest potential investment sectors, and the key technologies that will change everyday lives.
