Every day around 16 GMT / 12 pm EST in the Live Analysis Room, a community led by Dale Pinkert, we welcome and interview a special guest: financial analysts, writers, private or institutional traders, journalists… people from the markets and in the markets. Last Monday, we’ve had a prestigious guest: Harry Dent, an American financial newsletter writer. Author of the besteller, The Great Depression Ahead which appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List, his latest book is “The Demographic Cliff: How to Survive and Prosper During the Great Deflation of 2014-20”
In this interview, Dale and Harry discuss Dent’s theories and analysis on cycles and economies, and his outlook for 2014 in the markets. “I have never seen a confluence of long term cycles that I have now and a lot of shorter term cycles… this is the biggest down lay-up for me since 1930 to 34 in our cycles”, says Dent. He also believes “the US will be the safe haven as a currency in 2014 as they were in late 2008.”
Watch the whole interview below for all his insights.
