Dear Mr. Gordon,
Bravo on your stand to bring insight to your clients and to investors-at-large.
As a long time Wall St. and Fortune 25 strategy advisor, I have been warning people for years of the hole that we have dug, publicly predicting the collapse of September / 2008, the current debacle and one more significant event which I refer to in my writings as the Great Correction.
Being the bearer (no pun intended) of bad tidings is not always a welcome role but a necessary one. The intelligent folks out there will be able to ride out the upcoming chaos better than those who prefer to surround themselves with good news only.
Thank you for carrying the torch of insight, even when it is painful to many.
Take care and create a great day!

"Bertrand Russell once observed: 'if a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence."
"I suspect when Ian Gordon talks about the potential for the Dow to fall to 1,000, most people pay little attention because it is not in accordance with what they want to believe. Yet, we are seldom if ever well served by avoiding reality. Ian Gordon's piece, "Dow 1,000 Is Not A Silly Number" provides overwhelming evidence for a massive decline in the Dow that is difficult for any objective thinker to ignore. I would strongly suggest you have a read of Ian's brilliant argument and then plan your life accordingly."

"Great, useful info as usual.
I really enjoyed the hard assets conference. The speakers were great. I had a chance to meet Mr. Gordon and Jay, and enjoyed both presentations/talks Mr. Gordon gave. It was such a pleasure to talk to Mr. Gordon, he was so nice and patient with all of us, answered all questions and concerns, what a great and cool guy. I feel so fortunate that I have access to all his insights. Simply priceless. Thanks for all the great work you do."
"All of these Winter Warning articles have been excellent. it is a point of view that is not offered anywhere else. The article that was particularly insightful for me was the Deflation/Inflation discussion. I have read and re-read that article.
"On a personal note I want to express my thanks to the people at Longwave. I am 61 years of age and for the last 5 years or so have been trying to learn as much as I can about things finanacial and how to position my personal finances going forward. I have taken this approach because I just have not found anyone - as an investment advisor -who I thought really understood. As I began to learn on-line and attend investment conferences it has opened a new approach for me. Thank you for all your work"

"Extremely informative and educational, I would not want to be without it because you guys don't bull and tell the truth. I find all the publications very beneficial. I am grateful for all the work you do. The information you provide is first class, and what I most appreciate about it is that it is the TRUTH. I am tired of mainstreet media that is controlled by the elite who lies about almost everything that has to do with the true state of the economy."

"I have been following Longwave prior to its days of a paid subscription. Today, I gladly pay my subscription fee as the value is tremendous. The majority of your publications are excellent. Deep thinking with historical references. Sure you can discuss monetary theory by Ludwig Von Mises of the Austrian School of Economics thought or the misguided musings of John Maynard Keynes but what you do no one else does and there in lies the value. I have learned more from your publications then anywhere I else I have searched, thank you."

"To say Mr. Gordon is "bearish" on the global economy would be something of an understatement: His target on the Dow is 1,000 (he calls that "generous"). But he has predicted events of the past few years with frightening accuracy and believes we are now in the "deflationary/depressionary" stage of the economic cycle, in which gold goes up and everything else collapses"

"As far back as 2002, I was introduced to Ian's investment philosophies via his Long Wave Analyst newsletter. It has become evident that Ian has been remarkably accurate in his economic cycle prognostications through the years. Sprott Asset Management has been a client of Ian's through Bolder Investment Partners, and I have found his sage advice through our countless conversations, invaluable in terms of positioning myself and my clients for the tumultuous markets unfolding.
I have long viewed Ian, as a "mentor", as he is a rare breed in the investment advisor arena. Ian was willing to speak and write about a coming secular bear market in the North American indices when few others were cognizant or brave enough to admit that the end of the bull was here. He has long proclaimed that debt would be the undoing of the US banking system and the economy. Given the banking crisis we are now witnessing his words have taken on a life force of its own and if you care to listen Ian will tell you how it will all end."

"As I have said before your work is truly brilliant and I appreciate very much having access to it."
"Ian Gordon is certainly brilliant, and his thinking about the world, which is obviously grounded in a pretty thorough understanding of history, merits serious consideration. I am very impressed."

"I don't know if there is another source on the Internet that provides as much detail, explanation, and contemporary commentary on the theories of early 20th century Russian economist Nikolai Kondratieff as this website"

“I look back and remember going to your talk, and realize how lucky it was that I went… You took the time to come all the way to Sidney, to our home, and to further explain your Long Wave theory. I was convinced, and was ready to come on board. We both put our faith and assets in your hands, and as a result, have reaped the financial rewards, and now have a secure retirement. All thanks to you and your advice.”
"Four years ago I listened to you speak at the Gold conference in Calgary. Scared the *$%# out of me. I did what you said to prepare. I have prepared as best as I can and am ready for the storm."
I am just reading over your piece from August 2007. Where did you get that crystal ball? Great work! I wonder if the guys at the London conference in June are laughing now.
All the best Sean Boyd

“Last night I came across your ‘Winter Warning’ article. Which I read carefully and slowly. I have long been a Gold Bug and your article is without a doubt the finest article I have ever read, on any subject.”
“You guys rock. Your website is absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much for all the information you provide it’s absolutely incredible. I have never seen anything like it and it helps me so much to understand what is going on.I can’t imagine how much time and research you all spend on putting this together. It is beyond informative.”
“Having read more of your letters, I deemed it only polite to say thank you. The last two days have been an enlightenment into the world of investment and economic history (which I thought I knew all about – how silly of me). Tomorrow is the beginning of the rest of my life!”
