How and where we work and live is about to change drastically. In The Roaring 2000s, Harry Dent, one of the world's economic prognosticators, turns his visionary eye to the full spectrum of possibilities that will follow in the rouse of a flourishing turn-of-the-century economy. Dent identifies opportunities, explores trends, and makes concrete predictions.
"The world that author Harry S. Dent Jr. presents in his narration of The Roaring 2000s is one you'll want to live in: incredible interconnectivity between electronic devices, superfast jets, and computers that transmit video images, translate voice commands--everything except make omelets. Dent, who comes off like an accountant you'd trust with your last dime, makes the future sound so wonderful that you'll feel guilty listening to him talk about it on a low-tech cassette player."

"Dent's previous book The Great Boom Ahead (Hyperion, 1993) accurately predicted the stock market Boom of the 1990s. In this one, he looks ahead to the new millennium and claims that the Dow may reach as high as 35,000 within the next decade, due in large part to the changing demographics of baby Boom investors."

"Dent has made his career from his rosy prognostications. He offered employment tips in Great Jobs Ahead: Your Comprehensive Guide to Surviving and Prospering in the Coming Work Revolution (1995) and provided business advice in The Great Boom Ahead: Your Comprehensive Guide to Personal and business Profit in the New Era of Prosperity (1993). Now he turns his attention to investment strategies, predicting that the next 10 years will see the greatest Boom in the history of this country and projecting the Dow stock-market average to reach a dizzying 21,500! Dent argues that these events are inevitable, the obvious results of demographic trends that determine economic, technological, and social changes. He looks at the information Revolution and the Internet in particular and sees consumers finally warming to the idea of the electronic marketplace; he forecasts a mass migration to exurbia that will lead to a major real-estate Boom; and he looks at the consequences of the networked corporation. Dent then looks at the implications these changes suggest for investment strategies."
