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."
