Making sound investment decisions in today’s markets

Here are some ways how to make good financial, investment, and business decisions.

I. Hate. Central. Banks. Loathe them. They’ve hijacked our economy and the markets and taken away all our power to make sound investment, financial and business decisions.

Sure, you’ve got to hand it to them: they pulled us away from a depression, thanks to their trillions in stimulus. I mean, QE has had a huge impact on the economy. Two percent growth isn’t great, but it’s a hell of a lot better than a depression.

But in the process, they’ve separated the economy and markets from any fundamentals. There’s no rhyme or reason why the markets should be as high as they are, yet we are, Dow breaking 26,000.

Demographically, the economy should be slowing down — with the exception of the blip in births that recently hit on a 46-year lag, yet here we are. Companies aren’t making productive investments in their businesses. Rather, they’re buying back shares, and so prices go up.

Worst of all, there’s no precedent here. There’s nothing to look back on and say, “Well, this is what happened before, so here’s what we can expect!”

Essentially, there’s no way to make sound investment, financial, or business decisions anymore because the tools we could once use are now useless.

So, in my latest video, I talk about this and explore what kind of world we face ahead. Do demographics matter anymore? What about other fundamentals? Watch now.

Harry S. Dent Jr. studied economics in college in the 1970s, receiving his MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar and was elected to the Century Club for leadership excellence. Harry grew to find the study of economics vague and inconclusive and became so disillusioned by the state of his chosen profession that he turned his back on it. Instead, he threw himself into the burgeoning new science of finance which married economic research and market research. Identifying and studying demographic trends, business cycles, consumers’ purchasing power and many other trends empowered Harry to forecast economic and market changes. Over the last three decades, he’s spoken to executives, financial advisors and investors around the world. He’s appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC and CNN/FN. He’s been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, American Demographics and Omni. He is a regular guest on Fox Business’s “America’s Nightly Scorecard.” Harry has also written numerous best-selling books over the years, such as The Great Boom Ahead, The Roaring 2000s, the Roaring 2000s Investors and The Demographic Cliff. In his most recent book The Sale of a Lifetime: How the Great Bubble Burst of 2017 Can Make You Rich (2016), Harry looks at the upcoming economic crisis and reveals how it could be the single greatest chance to build wealth we’ll ever see and how we can capitalize on such a unique and historical opportunity. He explains how many of the richest Americans in history have used this same kind of opportunity to quickly accumulate incredible amounts of money, in a short period of time.
