really liked it

Years ahead of time, he predicted the 2009 (or late 2008) dip based on his "consumer spending" cycle analysis from his book "Roaring 2000's" that I also enjoyed years ago. He feels a World War may happen in the 2020's due to cyclical historical patterns. Hmmmmm. His estimates in the book are off due to a few things, but Obama's "stimulus package" is a biggie. If you factor in this book with his web site for more current updates, that would be a good start. International investing is riskier than he's making it seem. Also, he seems to misunderstand the significance of Islam, assuming they will fade out of the scene related to world events. But overall, I found it very helpful.
