Read the current draft of the new book: Generational Dynamics for Historians

Generational Dynamics is an advanced breakthrough in Generational Theory, based on MIT's System Dynamics applied to the dynamics of historical generational changes. System Dynamics was developed at MIT in the 1960s by Jay Forrester, and this is by far the most significant application of System Dynamics that's ever been developed, because it's been so successful. Since 2003, this web site has posted thousands of articles containing hundreds of non-ideological predictions and analyses, and every prediction has turned out to be true or is trending true. None has been wrong. There is no news site (BBC, NY Times, etc.), web site, analyst, journalist or politician with anything close to the predictive and analytical success of Generational Dynamics and this web site.
To get started, read the Web Log, or read the award-winning 2009 paper (PDF):
"International business forecasting using System Dynamics with generational flows."

International Investment Advisories
This is an experiment - Using the Generational Dynamics methodology to provide up-to-date information on investment opportunities around the world.
India: Hooray for Bollywood!: Investment opportunities in India range from high-tech pharmaceuticals to Spiderman. (5-Jul-03)
India: Socially beneficial profits from "Untouchable" investments: For those interested in socially beneficial investments in India, the lot of India's Dalits provides an ideal investment target -- high-risk but with the possibility of high returns because of the market size. (7-Jul-03)
Trading with Iran: Not exactly a magic carpet ride: Surprise! It turns out that being a member of the "Axis of Evil" doesn't help investors. (8-Jul-03)
Conflict Index: A special feature of the experimental International Investment Advisories, containing information not available elsewhere, is the Conflict Index, a medium-range (1-2 years) and long-range (2-10 years) forecast of the likely level of local conflict, from riots and demonstrations to all out insurrection and civil war.
