Using demographics to explain the conundrum of global real estate prices and ignoring the "flight to safety" by the buyers (i.e. rising real estate prices in many countries are not due to local buyers but buyers from other countries who are seeking "safe havens" for their (ill-gotten?) money) is an obvious weakness in the author's argument.

Although Dent makes some good points, demographically speaking as far as consumer spending habits, which once would have been valuable, he is woefully ignorant, or unable to comprehend, some essentially fundamental facts about finance and economics: it ain't deflation, but ultra-deleveraging, brought about by ultra-leveraging, which is why there are so many multi-billionaire crooks today (and some suggest several trillionaires?). Also, Dent is under the impression that the majority drive that 70% figure of consumption, again he is so ignorant it is ludicrous.
