Synopsis: In the enormous bestseller "The Roaring 2000s," Harry S. Dent, Jr., forecast a booming market that he says will continue to rise through the first eight years of the twenty-first century. Dent's many predictions in that book, from unprecedented Dow Jones highs to corrections throughout the year, were consistently correct with an uncanny accuracy. His ideas about why the market is where it is have truly captured the imagination of many investors and others who are interested in seeking a secure financial future. In "The Roaring 2000s Investor," Dent provides precisely the information people will need to get them the life they want -- for the rest of their years. While "The Roaring 2000s" highlighted Dent's theories about the forthcoming economic future, this new book zeroes in on specific strategies aimed at getting you there. Whether you are planning to retire in ten years or forty, whether you are looking for a larger home or a smaller one, whether you are planning to put several children through college or planning for life after they have graduated, you will need a financial plan to guide you through the great boom of the next decade -- and the hard times that Dent theorizes will follow. Dent takes into account many realistic and different forecasts for inflation, college and retirement costs, insurance needs, real estate investment costs, taxes, and tax-deferral opportunities, and offers a unique approach to building a diversified portfolio for the emerging new economy. Dent not only informs readers about the key sectors of the economy that will outperform all others in the United States due to demographic and technological trends, he also highlights ways in whichsuperior returns can come from taking advantage of international crises like the ones in Asia in 1997-98, and in Latin America in 1994-95. The ultimate goal of "The Roaring 2000s Investor" is to have investors get personalized and effective financial planning advice that fits their specific needs and allows them to achieve their highest life goals. According to Dent, typical investors have not reaped the great benefits of this bull market because they have not been taught the most important principles of systematic investing. As Harry Dent's observations and predictions continue to hit the mark, investors will gain great rewards, making "The Roaring 2000s Investor" an invaluable commodity.

Review: In The Roaring 2000s, America's favorite optimist, Harry S. Dent Jr., makes the case that demographics drive all economic activity and that, thanks to the current baby boom, we're set for one whale of a good time over the next 10 years. In The Roaring 2000s Investor, Dent shows how to cash in on this boom, then prepare for the worst when the downturn finally hits in the latter part of the decade. Dent believes that the best investment opportunities exist in the stock market--specifically technology, financial services, health care, and leisure stocks. But watch out after 2008, because that's when he thinks the bottom falls out. For these tough times, Dent recommends a shift away from stocks to out-of-favor investments such as bonds and commercial real estate.

In addition to investment information, Dent includes a good dose of living advice. He counsels not to be the millionaire next-door, counting change in a darkened living room while the greatest economic boom in history roars past. He writes, "Life should be interesting; investment and financial plan should be boring." Dent's prescription: Understand what drives the economy, then get a financial advisor and learn to enjoy life. Other subjects he touches on include asset allocation, international investing, and tax planning. Some might find Dent's reliance on demographics as an economic barometer a bit too simplistic. But for others, The Roaring 2000s Investor just might be the perfect framework for building an investment strategy into the next millennium. --Harry C. Edwards
