We’re heading for the biggest crash since the great depression and it’s just around the corner, according to Harry Dent.
He’s doing a virtual seminar telling anyone who’s prepared to listen that we’re headed for a stock market crash, a major depression, and the value of your home dropping 40-50%.
Today we’re going to have a chat with Harry Dent, and I’m also going to have a talk with Pete Wargent.
Before we get into the interview, a word of warning.
Especially for the fainthearted. Harry makes some really scary predictions.
