The Life Cycle Hypothesis

The Life Cycle Hypothesis

This new book extends the findings of The Law of Vibration. It suggests that (a) the introduction of genuine information into an existing system initiates a process of evolution; that (b) this process has a life cycle; and that (c) this life cycle has a very specific formation. This formation accounts for the Great Depression of the 1930s, the inflation trauma of the 1970s, and the global financial crisis of 2007-09. The same pattern suggests that there may be a major crisis in the early years of the next decade.

The Law of Vibration

The Law of Vibration

Ordered behaviour in financial markets and in economic activity follows a specific behavioural pattern. This pattern was known about in antiquity, and is deeply connected to the dynamics of change and evolution. The pattern was hidden by William D. Gann in his best known book.

 

Forecasting Financial Markets

Forecasting Financial Markets

A seminal work explaining the influence of collective psychology on economic activity and financial market  behaviour. The resulting order expresses itself in trends, patterns and rhythms in economic activity and in asset prices. These phenomena are often disregraded by economists.
