totally enjoyed the demographic economics.
Maybe I'll like this book more if some of the author's predictions come true in the remaining years. Essentially, everything you need to know about this book is on the back cover:

When I first read this book many years ago, I felt it was one of the most dubious finance books I had ever read, with novel conclusions taken from gimmicky data.

Future predictions are utter nonsense...but are cute to read after the fact to see if one can decipher where the author went wrong.

On the flip side, it may be beneficial to read Dent's new books and perform opposite of his suggestions.
Just reread this for a third time in 2014. I like to go back and check on his accuracy. So far so good. Except for a very few minor forecasts, he was significantly correct in all of his predictions. Best economist I have yet to read.
