Harry S. Dent: Simon & Schuster Speakers Bureau

Harry S. Dent

Best-selling Author and One of the Most Prescient Economic Forecasters of our Times

At the podium Harry S. Dent, Jr. brings a very lively and common sense approach to helping financial advisors and everyday investors understand the fundamental trends driving this incredible boom. He ties the baby boom generation’s massive spending, saving and debt trends along with the fast-paced information revolution, the pervasive workplace changes, and the coming population shift outside of suburbs into one simple, cohesive picture that leaves the audience feeling very clear and confident about the future. He is especially good at handling questions and customizing presentations to different audiences. For financial advisors, he paints a very clear picture of how the role of the financial advisor will evolve. For investors he summarizes the time-tested principles for systematically investing in long term bull markets.

Using exciting new research developed from years of hands-on business experience, Dent offers a refreshingly positive and understandable view of the economic future. As a bestselling author on economics, Dent is the developer of The Dent Method - an economic forecasting approach based on changes in demographic trends.

In his book The Great Boom Ahead, published in 1992, Dent stood virtually alone in accurately forecasting the unanticipated “Boom” of the 1990s. Today he continues to educate audiences about his predictions for the next and possibly last great bull market, from late 2005 into early to mid 2010. Since 1992 he has authored two consecutive best-sellers The Roaring 2000's and The Roaring 2000's Investor. In his book, The Next Great Bubble Boom, he offers a comprehensive forecast for the next two decades and explains how fundamental trends suggest strong growth ahead, followed by a longer-term economic contraction. His latest book, The Great Crash of 2010: How to Survive and Thrive in the Coming Hard Times examines where the U.S. economy is headed.

Dent received his MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar and was elected to the Century Club for leadership excellence. Since 1988 he has been speaking to executives, financial advisors and investors around the world. He has appeared on Good Morning America, PBS, CNBC, and has been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, BusinessWeek, the Wall Street Journal, American Demographics and Omni.

While at Bain & Company he worked as a consultant with several Fortune 100 companies. He has also been CEO of several entrepreneurial growth companies and an investor in new ventures. A frequent speaker on economic trends, Dent educates clients and partners on The Dent Method and provides strategic vision for asset allocation and investment selection.
