Operated by Rodney Johnson, Adam O’Dell and Harry S. Dent, Survive and Prosper is a website that provides insight into financial markets based on their research.
What is the product?
Survive and Prosper is a blog/newsletter created by known personality Harry S. Dent with Rodney Johnson and Adam O’Dell. The website itself contains 2 main aspects, the first of which is the blog which is free. This contains the musings of Harry S. Dent and his team on various aspects of the financial and global markets. It is also essentially acts as a sales funnel for Survive and Prosper’s paid services. These are much more in depth than the blogs and are based on persona research carried out by Rodney Johnson, Adam O’Dell and Harry S. Dent. As a user you can utilise this insight as a method of guiding your investments if you so choose, hopefully with a profitable outcome.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
As mentioned the core of Survive and Prosper is free in the form of the blog. The paid newsletters however more than make up for this. One example, Cycle 9 Alert costs a staggering $2,295 annually although this does seem to be the high end of the market. In terms of returns, results should be anticipated as qualitative rather than quantitative.
I find it difficult to see how you can realistically apply the information Survive and Prosper provides though for reasons I shall explore below.
Does the product provide value for money?
As it is entirely free, there is little reason not to look at Survive and Prosper, however I would not expect it to do masses for you.
The fact that Survive and Prosper is free is pretty much its saving grace. When researching Harry S. Dent it appears that many of his predictions in recent times have been about a massive downturn in the market, something that is yet to happen, despite him predicting this for a good number of years.
This doesn’t mean that Survive and Prosper is without merit however and it is definitely worth a read, if only for academic reasons.
