I do not get a chance to write much but could not resist this one – and it is not only for the Schadenfreude but it also teaches an important lesson about investing which is old but must be repeated over and over and over. I have no doubt Harry Dent is a brilliant person and knows a lot more about finance than I do. I also assume that even though he has conflicts of interest (we all do) he is sincere in his believes just as he was when he was bullish. That said it is important to realize no matter how intelligent one is you can not predict the future! Case in point….

I want to thank Jeff Miller of Dash Of Insight for highlighting my 2013 column on the topic and awarding it a Silver Bullet which inspired me to update despite it being a very busy day here! No now we are doing the 2017 as this headline just popped up – we will add in a few more dates. Also I assume Dent is sincere but he is also trying to sell a new book FWIW.
