The primary mission of this current volume is to provide, in layman's terms, a unique and passionate understanding of the amazing boom and bust cycles of our times. This is not a book about forecasting, but more concerned with presenting observations and facts about boom and bust cycles, and with establishing a deep understanding and awareness about this fascinating phenomenon. And given the fact that we are in the midst of one of the greatest technological revolutions in the history of the world, there is an urgency to come to a much greater understanding of how and when future boom and bust periods will emerge. Will cycles be longer or shorter in duration as we move forward into the 21st century? Is the "Long Wave Cycle" a myth or reality, and what is its connection to the "Information Age Revolution"?
Major paradigm shifts in the industry sectors of energy, communications, travel, infrastructure, medicine and other fields are scheduled to transform our world in ways that we have only imagined in Hollywood. As these events unfold, global markets are going to react, and in many cases irrationally to barrier-breaking technologies. As investors or analysts, it is very important to have convictions, strategies, systems and guideposts to follow when investing during these highly volatile periods in the markets.

This book takes a very candid look at a complex economic and financial phenonomenon: Boom and Bust Cycles. The author's odyssey spans a period of 15 years of observations, research and day to day involvements with the markets. The impact of "Terrorism and Natural Disasters" on financial markets and economic systems is given particular consideration in light of September 11, 2001. The book provides a sound understanding on how investors and analysts should navigate the vast uncertainties of future boom and bust periods. With greater "awareness" of what's happening in "boom" and "bust" cycles, investors and analysts are able to experience greater success and benefit from emerging opportunities in the Information Age Revolution of the 21st century.From the Author:
Within the last 20 years the world has witnessed three remarkable boom and bust cycles that were all related in some way to the current Information Age Revolution. These cycles gave the world of finance some exciting and extremely profitable opportunities...What’s interesting and should be clearly understood is that these cycles are continuous, with pausing transitions that slowly drift into the next major or minor period...Recessions come and go; boom and bust periods come and go in a never-ending succession. Properly understood and analyzed, recessions (and even major depressions) can be profitable and present some major opportunities if one is skillful in the art of timing and in understanding the events of the day. This book offers a unique insight into the power and magnetism of this incredible phenonomenon.
