This astonishing book will change the way you see the world -- and your place in it. With startling originality, The Fourth Turning illuminates the past, explains the present, and reimagines the future. Most remarkably, it offers an utterly persuasive prophecy about a new American era that will begin just after the millennium. William Strauss and Neil Howe base this vision on a provocative new theory of American history. The authors look back five hundred years and uncover a distinct pattern: Modern history moves in cycles, each one lasting about the length of a long human life, each composed of four eras--or "turnings"--that last about twenty years and that always arrive in the same order. First comes a High, a period of confident expansion as a new order takes root after the old has been swept away. Next comes an Awakening, a time of spiritual exploration and rebellion against the now-established order. Then comes an Unraveling, an increasingly troubled era in which individualism triumphs over crumbling institutions. Last comes a Crisis--the Fourth Turning--when society passes through a great and perilous gate in history. Together, the four turnings comprise history's seasonal rhythm of growth, maturation, entropy, and rebirth. Strauss and Howe locate today's America as midway through an Unraveling, roughly a decade away from the next era of Crisis. In a brilliant analysis of the post-World War II period, they show how generational dynamics are the key to understanding the cycles of American history. They draw vivid portraits of all the modern generations: the can-do G.I.s, the mediating Silent, the values-absorbed Boomers, the pragmatic 13ers, and the child Millennials. Placed in the context of history's long rhythms, the persona and role of each generation become clear--as does the inevitability of the coming Crisis. Whatever your stage of life, The Fourth Turning offers bold predictions about how all of us can prepare, individually and collectively, for America's next rendezvous with destiny.

Der neue US-Präsident Donald Trump wurde auf einer Welle von "Amerika first!" ins Amt getragen. Begleitet wird er von radikalen Medien im Internet, die den Amerikanern die Folgen von Merkels Flüchtlingspolitik in den wildesten Farben ausmalen. Nun werden Verträge in Frage gestellt, Grenzen neu definiert und Freund und Feind anders sortiert – vor allem in Europa. Trump, ein international operierender Geschäftsmann, unterstützt rechtspopulistische Parteien, sympathisiert mit Russland und England, die gegen die EU auftreten, und will Importe aus Deutschland, China und Mexiko blockieren. Nicht zum ersten Mal: Ausbrüche von Abschottung und Fremdenfeindlichkeit gab es in Amerika vor beiden Weltkriegen. Für Transatlantiker sind raue Zeiten angebrochen. Aber was bedeutet das für die Bürger? USA-Expertin Eva C. Schweitzer geht dem angespannten Verhältnis zwischen Washington und Europa nach. Faktenreich und kundig zeigt sie, wie der neue US-Präsident die Gräben zwischen Amerika und Europa vertieft und die Spaltung Europas vorantreibt. Was er tut, wird eklatante Auswirkungen nicht nur auf die europäische, sondern unmittelbar auch auf die deutsche Politik haben. Das Ende der westlichen Wertegemeinschaft steht auf dem Spiel – und Deutschland droht zu einem Gegner der USA zu werden.

Is it possible to see across space and time? Even those who accept that humans can reach beyond the conventional five senses typically think of psychics as "special" or "gifted" with unusual abilities. But David Morehouse teaches otherwise—all human beings, including you, have the innate capacity for remote viewing. David Morehouse was trained by the U.S. government in remote viewing—an exact scientific protocol for tapping the human power to gather information across space and time. In this comprehensive manual, he has taken his military training as an "operational" remote viewer and turned it into a step-by-step training system—one that teaches any serious reader how to unlock their natural abilities and become more than the physical world allows. Remote Viewing includes more than just a method for gathering information. It is a transformational tool instilling within you the absolute and irrefutable evidence that you are more than human—that you are extraordinarily human. As you gain experience and confidence as a viewer, you will tap into the collective unconscious that connects you to everything and everyone in the universe. Through David Morehouse's training, you will learn to touch the infinite source of life and knowledge that spiritual masters throughout human history have sought. David Morehouse's superiors in the DIA/CIA called him "the most exceptional candidate ever to have grasped this difficult intelligence collection methodology." What sets him apart as a teacher is his unparalleled ability to present the complexities of remote viewing in an accessible, logical, and artful manner. As more than 23,000 students have already discovered, David Morehouse has set a new and brilliant standard for teaching the scientific protocol of remote viewing. "You have the ability to do this," Morehouse says. "Something extraordinary is absolutely possible in your life." Now for the first time, he brings you his method for taking your first step into your ultimate potential in a single volume: Remote Viewing: The Complete User's Manual for Coordinate Remote Viewing, which also include a cool-down audio track.David Morehouse has found that this psychoacoustic “pink noise” track is especially effective for helping us enter the brainwave state of relaxed awareness needed for remote viewing.

A unique and timely new wealth-building strategy from a legendary investment guru In his national bestsellers How to Retire Rich and What Works on Wall Street, portfolio manager extraordinaire James P. O’Shaughnessy offered investors practical advice based on rigorous quantitative analysis—advice that has consistently beaten the market. But in a recent analysis of market data, O’Shaughnessy uncovered some astonishing trends not discussed in his previous books. The Markets of Tomorrow explains O’Shaughnessy’s new research and tells ordinary investors what they must do now to revamp their portfolios. According to O’Shaughnessy, the year 2000 marked the end of a twenty-year cycle that was dominated by the stocks of larger, fastergrowing companies like those in the S&P 500. In the new cycle, the stocks of small and midsize companies are the ones that will outperform the market, along with large company value stocks and intermediate term bonds. O’Shaughnessy describes the number crunching behind his analysis and then shows individual investors exactly how to select the right mix of investments and pick top-performing small and midcap stocks. The Markets of Tomorrow is a loud and clear call to action for every investor who doesn’t want to be left behind.

"Halten Sie einen Vortrag über Volkswirtschaft, und Sie werden sehen, wie schnell Ihr Publikum müde wird. Erzählen Sie Ihren Zuhörern jedoch eine Geschichte, über die sie schmunzeln können, dann sind Sie in der Lage, ihnen fast alles beizubringen." Getreu diesem Motto lehrte der berühmte Ökonom Irwin Schiff seine Söhne die Grundlagen der Volkswirtschaft. Die Geschichte, die er Ihnen dazu erzählte, haben Peter und Andrew Schiff nun aufgeschrieben. Klug und amüsant an die heutige Zeit angepasst zeigen sie, wie politisches und ökonomisches Fehlverhalten den Zusammenbruch ganzer Volkswirtschaften auslösen können. Ihr Buch ist eine Fabel darüber, wie Politik und menschliche Schwächen dazu führen, dass die Gesetze von Angebot und Nachfrage missachtet werden - was bei allen Beteiligten zu massiven finanziellen Kopfschmerzen führt. Das Buch wurde im Rahmen der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2010 mit dem International Book Award 2010 ausgezeichnet.
