Harry S. Dent predicted our current economic crisis, and he foresees still more to come. He predicts that we are headed further towards a major depression reminiscent of Japan’s major recession more than a decade ago, from which their real estate market has yet to recover. With the current state of the stock market causing investors around the world to be nervous, and searching for answers, The Great Depression Ahead offers important advice to help readers not just survive, but prosper in the face of the crash.

Dent has developed theories that have accurately predicted changes in the market. He is a frequent target of economists, yet with few exceptions, Dent has always been right about the market. With fully updated predictions and reflections on all that has happened since the hardcover came out in December of 2008, this is a book on the economic crisis that we can’t afford not to read.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dent’s...theories are persuasive and elaborated in meticulous descriptions of historic economic trends and cycles. The author’s candor is refreshing, especially when he discusses how equity investments experience a wide variety of returns, including substantial losses or extraordinary gains—and that the financial press has failed to remind the public of this fact.”  

    Publishers Weekly

  • “What Harry Dent brings to the much-discussed subject of the now-insolvent world markets is an unrelenting grasp of both the facts and the figures behind the greatest financial collapse of modern times. His subdued tone conveys a hard edge as he tells of the hardships surrounding plummeting real estate values.”  


  • “[Dent] makes a compelling case for his predictions...This is an excellent book to challenge a broad range of library patrons.”


  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Konnie | 2/18/2014

    " Okay, When I say I read it, I'm lying. I skimmed it. Enough to know that I'm not enough there with investing and economics to understand it well--at least not without some deep, quiet study. But, it was still interesting. Harry S. Dent uses history and economic patterns to predict future economic trends. He has had a measure of success. He also has many who disagree with his predictions and assumptions. If I had a greater understanding of economics (and a quieter house in which to concentrate), I might have read more deeply and learned something that would change my spending/investing/saving habits and philosophies. But without the quiet house, it was interesting for a moment and won't change much. "

    " Skimmed. Read chapters summaries. This book is intended for people with investment resources. Not what I was looking for. Basically advises investors to abandon cities that do not have positive domestic immigration. He ignores thinks I think he should not. For instance, he thinks that since echo boomers are heading for the South and Southwest, that those are places to invest. I wonder what while happen when the water runs out. I think he optimistically underestimates current events and their long-term effects. "

    " Not the best book I've read, but really interesting predictions on the upcoming years. I'm pretty sure Dent is right-on with the economy tanking. But things wouldn't be interesting if we could see the future, right? "

    " 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. "
