The Longwave Group has its founding based upon the economic cycle theories originally proposed by Russian economist Nicolai Kondratieff in the 1920's, particularly in his 1925 publication 'The Major Economic Cycles.' Kondratieff's economic theories focused on the long-term nature of economic cycles and how history was prone to repeat itself.
However, over the past two decades, the Longwave Economic Cycle theory has been enhanced and broadened by the publications of Ian Gordon, a successful investor and interpreter of the Kondratieff cycle, who predicted an end to the stock bull market in 2000. Mr. Gordon also accurately forecast the beginning of the gold bull market in 2001; as well as the 2007 economic recession and banking crisis in his publication 'This Is It.' The Lifetime Economic, Financial and Investment Map, created by Mr. Gordon, and depicted on the homepage is a concise outline of the Longwave or Kondratieff Cycle and substantially advances the original cycle theory proposed by Nicolai Kondratieff.
