FULL SPEED INTO THE FOURTH TURNING -Cliff Notes for the New Normal


Master Historian and “Cycles Man” Neil Howe believes we are headed in to what he calls a “fourth turning,”
It's here.....

-a period that is invariably marked by great turmoil and crisis, as well as rare opportunity for those that understand the “Rhymes of History”  (World Wars I and II, as well as the Great Depression are prototypical fourth turning periods).

One of my favorite examples of the sort of societal shifts Neil talks about is the difference between the 1950s and the 1960s, which you can see in the photos here.

Literally no one saw it coming.

1950s…..

1960’s…………………………

Luckily for busy folks like you and me, there is a cliff-notes version of the Fourth Turning compiled by investing guru Doug Casey from the exclusive interview he did with Neil Howe last year.  You owe it to yourself to download it and read it here.

You won’t be disappointed:
