Economy

Access articles from all of the editors, including Harry Dent, Rodney Johnson, Charles Sizemore and the rest of the Dent Research team on all aspects of our economy, so you can stay current on how to protect your financial future.

This includes a unique economic perspective on finance, using the power of demographic trends and purchasing power to accurately identify and forecast economic and market boom and busts.the Fed’s policies, investment outlook, and quantitative easing.

Sometimes the economy and the markets, in particular, adjust very quickly and sometimes violently when the unexpected happens, so this is where Economy and Markets is your place for the most up to date news on the Fed’s next move.

Retirement is entirely personal, as the strategies that each of the Dent Research editors share in Economy and Markets. From Harry to Adam, and Rodney, John and Lance, they each approach their retirement planning a little differently, as we all do, depending on our needs and wants.

And when you’re dealing with billions – if not trillions – of dollars, a few measly percentage points can make a huge ripple in the economy. So, current interest rates and future interest rate changes are really important for companies, consumers and investors alike. Our experts keep you in the loop with the rise and fall of interest rates.

We’re Moving Sideways

The markets don’t seem to be moving in any specific direction. It’s been this way since late January. If the bubble was to burst, it would’ve done so by now, sharply falling down. But it hasn’t. The damn market is moving...

Trade Wars, Rate Hikes, and a Whole Lot of Maybes

Last week, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell dropped a couple of surprises on Fed watchers. What didn’t come as a shock was the quarter-point hike to the overnight federal funds rate. Markets were fully prepared for that move. But they were...

The Coming Economic Armageddon

When on tour in Australia last February, I met an Australian economist John Adams. He’s been fighting the same bubble blindness and economic risks that I’ve been, and recently wrote a short article titled: “The Six Scenarios Defining the...

What Happens When North Meets South…

If you haven’t heard about it yet, I’m not sure what you’ve been doing. It’s been all over the headlines, and reporters can’t seem to get enough of it. On Monday, Donald Trump met with Kim Jong Un during the...

So… What Will the Fed Do Next?

All signs pointed to a quarter-point rate hike coming from the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy arm, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). That’s exactly what we got after its two-day meeting ended yesterday. The rate hike applies to the overnight...

How the Elite Took Over

I call it “killing the golden goose.” David Stockman, a speaker at this year’s Irrational Economic Summit, calls it “the corruption of capitalism.” Andrew O’Hehir, a contributor for Salon, recently interviewed Yanis Varoufakis about the story behind Greece’s financial crash. He...

Corporate Profits Are Crushing Wages, and the Tax Cuts Aren’t Helping

There’s no end to the insanity. Our central bankers and politicians are trying to keep this artificial bubble going at all costs. How shortsighted. How arrogant. How selfish! These politicians will be roasted in history, not just for creating the greatest...

How Much More Money Do You Make Than…?

Finally! I recently came across this great analysis that the OECD (the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) did to show how well off workers in different countries are after adjusting for income and entitlement taxes, like social security...

Social Unrest in China

Anyone who has listened to me in the past decade knows that I think China’s going to take the greatest economic fall of any major country. They’re the only emerging country that has continually declining demographics. The top-down Chinese mafia-like...

The Coming Financial Detox

The economy has been over-stimulated for too long! And now Trump is issuing more tax cuts. This does nothing except delay the inevitable meltdown that helps to clean out and reset the economy. Every bubble must burst. It destroys money, and...
