United States History I. Introduction United States History, story of how the republic developed from colonial beginnings in the 16th century, when the first European explorers arrived, until modern times.
There are many economists that believe that it does, and if their projections are correct, the rest of this decade is going to be pure hell for the United States.
Many mainstream economists want nothing to do with economic cycle theorists, but it should be noted that economic cycle theories have enabled some analysts to correctly predict the timing of recessions, stock market peaks and stock market crashes over the past couple of decades.
Of course none of the theories discussed below is perfect, but it is very interesting to note that all of them seem to indicate that the U. So will the period of to turn out to be pure hell for the United States? We will just have to wait and see. Two Dutch economists, Jacob van Gelderen and Samuel de Wolff, had previously argued for the existence of 50 to 60 year cycles in However, the work of de Wolff and van Gelderen has only recently been translated from Dutch to reach a wider audience.
Subsequently he was sent to the gulag and was executed in In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the Kondratieff wave. An influential essay, written by Professor W. So what does the Kondratieff wave theory suggest is coming next for us?
Well, according to work done by Professor W. If we accept the fact that most winters in K cycles last 20 years as outlined in the chart above this would indicate that we are about halfway through the Kondratieff winter that commenced in the year But of course the Kondratieff wave is far from the only economic cycle theory that indicates that we are heading for an economic depression.
The economic cycle theories of author Harry Dent also predict that we are on the verge of massive economic problems. He mainly focuses on demographics, and the fact that our population is rapidly getting older is a major issue for him.
Then China will be the first emerging market to fall off the cliff, albeit in a few decades. The world is getting older. The worst economic trends due to demographics will hit between and The big four challenges in the years ahead will be 1 private and public debt 2 health care and retirement entitlements 3 authoritarian governance around the globe and 4 environmental pollution that threatens the global economy.
Another economic cycle theory that people are paying more attention to these days is the relationship between sun spot cycles and the stock market.
It turns out that market peaks often line up very closely with peaks in sun spot activity. This is a theory that was first popularized by an English economist named William Stanley Jevons. Sun spot activity appears to have peaked in early and is projected to decline for the rest of the decade.
If historical trends hold up, that is a very troubling sign for the stock market. And of course there are many, many other economic cycle theories that seem to indicate that trouble is ahead for the United States as well.
The following is a summary of some of them from an article by GE Christenson and Taki Tsaklanos … Charles Nenner Research source Stocks should peak in mid and fall until about An average of , foreigners a day in arrive the United States.

The dramatic decline in Ohio’s manufacturing employment is reflected in Ohio manufacturing’s declining share of overall U.S. manufacturing employment (from percent in January to percent in October ) and the declining share of Ohio’s non-farm employment accounted for by manufacturing (from percent in January to just percent in ) (BLS b).
Does the economy move in predictable waves, cycles or patterns? There are many economists that believe that it does, and if their projections are correct, the rest of this decade is going to be pure hell for the United States.
