Almanac: Kondratieff waves:Cycles, Crises, and Forecasts

The first time I encountered the name of Nikolai Kondratieff was in the mid-1980s. At that time, I came across the book Stalemate in Technology (German title Der technologische Patt) by Gerhard Mensch. I was very impressed and began to learn about the Theory of Long Waves. After a short time, it became clear to me that one could understand the structural change in the post-war years easier with the help of the Kondratieff cycles. This is how my book ‘The Fifth Kondratieff’ came to be in the early 1990s.
