Instead, he threw himself into the burgeoning New Science of Finance where identifying and studying demographic, technological, consumer and many other trends empowered him to forecast economic changes.
In his 1992 book The Great Boom Ahead, he stood virtually alone in forecasting the unanticipated 'Boom' of the 1990s, this was to be followed by many other accurate predictions over the years. In his most recent book, The Great Crash Ahead (2011), he explains how this next great crash is likely to unfold and why there is nothing the government can do to protect us as deflation takes hold of the economy.
