I was asked the other day:
What is your take on the Kondratieff Long Wave Theory?Â Would you say we are in the Winter phase?
I’ve heard of a lot of different analytic methods and concepts, but I have to say I have never heard of this. But then again, I’m not a trained economist, so I could have just missed out on this one in my education. Having taken a quick look, I now realize it’s basically a theory based on super cycles.
Kondratieff Long Wave TheoryÂ came fromÂ Nikolai Dmyitriyevich Kondratieff (1892 – 1938) who was involved in the early Soviet economic planning processes. You can learn more about him and his ideas here:
I’m going to have to read up on all this stuff. Until that’s done, I’m not going to venture a guess as where we might be in the cycle. I encourage anyone else who has some thoughts on the subject to leave a comment with them, though.
