Summary

Harry S. Dent Jr., best-selling author of The Demographic Cliff and The Sale of a Lifetime, predicted the populist wave that has driven the Brexit vote, the election of Donald Trump, and other recent shocks around the world. Now he returns with the definitive guide to protect your investments and prosper in the age of the anti-globalist backlash.  

The turn of the 2020s will mark an extremely rare convergence of low points for multiple political, economic, and demographic cycles. The result will be a major financial crash and global upheaval that will dwarf the Great Recession of the 2000s - and maybe even the Great Depression of the 1930s. We're facing the onset of what Dent calls "Economic Winter". 

In Zero Hour, he and Andrew Pancholi (author of The Market Timing Report newsletter) explain all of these cycles, which influence everything from currency valuations to election returns, from economic growth rates in Asia to birthrates in Europe. You'll learn, for instance: 

  • Why the most-hyped technologies of recent years (self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, blockchain) won't pay off until the 2030s 
  • Why China may be the biggest bubble in the global economy (and you'd be a fool to invest there) 
  • Why you should invest in the health-care and pharmaceutical industries and pull out of real estate and automotive 
  • Why putting your faith in gold is a bad idea 

Fortunately, Zero Hour includes a range of practical strategies to help you turn the upheaval ahead to your advantage, so your family can be prepared and protected. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Utter nonsense

I feel that I have wasted a part of my life listening to this book. The hubris of 'quoting' yourself at the start of each chapter should have been warning enough. If that wasn't enough the incessant drone of 'subscribe to my mailing list blah blah blah' at the conclusion of every chapter.

However, the book was recommended by a friend and I listened to this title on his recommendation. I wish I could ask for my credit back.

John Lee and Jonathan Todd Ross do a good job of reading the book and there I cannot find fault.

The content of the book is utter nonsense. The supposed cycles that these two have identified are baseless.

Disappointed

Harry seems to have a few points. His arrogant sounding sidekick prattles incessantly on about a tortured web of cycles and historical events. So many cycles that it would be difficult to find a year free of one. Strikes me as junk science.

Harry Dent as usual.

So many mispredictions, it's hard to listen to.
Why would you try to time the market again and again if you failed to do so countlessly.
Where is the "Coming gold bust" of 2015-16, and countless of other things you "predicted".
PS: We are currently 2 weeks from 2020, and recession have not hit us yet.
So, the limo on the Gold Cost of Australia is waiting for you, Harry.

Glad I didn’t read this book in 2017

I like the principles in this book. But it is clear that the cycles, in some cases, are not as predictable as indicated. The run has continued into late 2019 while the prediction was to get out in late 2017. Not saying it won’t happen soon but it hasn’t happened yet. It’s also clear that the writers are never trumpers.

🙄

A total waste of my money. Anyone who takes this guy’s advice deserves to lose their money. His methods are reversed fortune telling. The only way this guy is making money is by selling these books. I totally feel ripped off for buying it.

this is his second book I listen to.

way of on dates, this book proves that you can always find patterns if you look where you want.
where there is summer there will be winter in other part in the world.
thing is he always focus on the winter to prove his point. no matter if its in US, UK ot Thailand.
its just economy, all the cycles and sunspots sounds BS.
