Lacy is an old friend of mine and the Executive Vice President at the Hoisington Investment Management Company. He’s also a featured speaker at this year’s Irrational Economic Summit. The event is happening October 10-12 at the National Harbor just south of Washington, D.C. (More info on the conference can be found here.)

The two talked about recession fears, what’s causing them – at home and throughout the world – and also a bit about what Lacy thinks will happen politically and economically in 2020.

Dave’s got a few more interviews with IES speakers in the queue. On Monday, we’ll have Gordon Chang, who will certainly have plenty to say about the ongoing negotiations between the Trump administration and China. And on Wednesday, we’re excited to run an interview with David Stockman, Director of the Office of Management and Budget during the Reagan years and our keynote speaker at the Irrational Economic Summit next month.

Harry Dent

Since then, he’s spoken to executives, financial advisors and investors around the world. He’s appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC and CNN/Fox News. 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.” In his latest book, Zero Hour: Turn the Greatest Political and Financial Upheaval in Modern History to Your Advantage, Harry Dent reveals why the greatest social, economic, and political upheaval since the American Revolution is on our doorstep.
