I don't know if you participated on the old Longwaves forum with Mike Alexander or talked to Bob Bronson back when he was actually arguing with people. I didn't.
However, what you keep talking about with your ongoing predictions of the "financial crisis" is Bob Bronson's old "Mass-Correlation, Hyper-Volatility, Illiquidity Event, or MCHVIE (pronounced “mac-vee”)". Basically, that's when everything fails and the financial past finally dies. Bob isn't good with market prices, but he's on target with respect to his MCHVIE, which is where you are in agreement with him.
That hasn't happened yet, which is why things still feel somewhat stable and which is why you keep telling everyone "the financial crisis is coming".
Perhaps if you incorporated that into your discussions, you could gain some additional traction on the Internet. I know that Doug Short is liking to Bob Bronson at dshort.com. Doug is often cited on Calculated Risk.
My observations and comments:
I think that John provides a very unique and valuable service to a rather small number of people (at this time) because he does not water it down with other theories. GD, as John uses it, is a basic underlying principle for human behavior on a mass scale. I believe that there are longer term patterns that may be used and many, many shorter term wave patterns that may also be utilized to help determine future events but I believe that Generational Dynamics is the most important single "wave pattern" that we can use for long term predictions of human "trending". I hope that John sticks to his guns and does not worry too much if short term events do not play out as expected because those who have followed John and GD for any amount of time know that a lack of short term accuracy only increases the probability of the event and the degree of effect. I apologize if I have not used all the "proper" terms but in summary I KNOW that John's work is exceptionally valuable and will likely never be appreciated by most because of the very nature of people; and that is what makes Generational Dynamics valuable.
