Everybody wants predictions. The following article does a little better than that, in that I wrote it back in November of 1997, outlining several theories of history, and pointing to a logical way of anticipating what will likely happen to the world at large over the next generation.
As you will read, the methodology I relied upon for anticipating the events that are now unfolding – 7 years later – were uncannily accurate, confirming in my mind at least, that now is a time to be very cautious in your personal and financial affairs.
The article is unaltered in its text from the original, though I have added some current commentary in bold italics

Glad you thought it was a good read too. Shame others havent- but each to their own I guess.
I want to add, based on his four generational catagories, after Gen X, the cycle would repeat and begin again with the "Hero Archetype" generation.
Based on his characterization of this generation, do you really think we are now in the "Hero Archetype"? I have a teen and 12 year old at home, they are ANYTHING but, and i quote him....
" ... them to be civic minded, optimistic, regular guys who could be counted on to do the right thing, fit in, and see that everybody got a square deal. "
Honestly, I have never seen such self-serving detached kids/teens running around. I see a blurring of the line between right & wrong. With morality a NON-priority.
Maybe, there needs to be another "Generation" (Gen Y) added to the cycle.
