The Next Great Bubble Boom

Full Name
The Next Great Bubble Boom: How to Profit from the Greatest Boom in History: 2006-2010

The Next Great Bubble Boom — part crystal ball, part financial planner — shows readers a comprehensive forecast for the next two decades, offering new models for forecasting the future behavior of the economy, inflation, stocks, bonds, key sectors, and so on. Harry Dent foretells not only what our economy will look like but also how it will affect individuals, organizations, and culture. From the upcoming wealth revolution to the essential principles of entrepreneurial success, the book describes a new society where economic and philanthropic development go hand in hand. In The Next Great Bubble Boom, Dent shows not only how the economic growth of the late 1990s was a prelude to the true great boom right around the corner but how all of us can reap its benefits.

  • The Next Great Bubble Boom is authored by Harry Dent, one of the most successful business forecasters of the 1990s.

  • 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 all something to look forward to, including:

  • The Dow hitting 40,000 by the end of the decade

  • The Nasdaq advancing at least ten times from its 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 resurging into its final and strongest stage in 2007, and even more fully in 2008, lasting until late 2009 to early 2010
