Edward R. Dewey was a Harvard-educated economist who worked for the Department of Commerce during the 1929 stock market crash. After the crash he was assigned the task of finding out what caused the economic disaster. After a few years in this position he left the government and went to work with Chapin Hoskins, a stock market analyst, and previous managing editor of Forbes magazine.

In his book, Cycles: The Mysterious Forces That Trigger Events, he said he was distressed by the reasons given by the leading economists as to why the depression happened, but while conducting his research he became intrigued with Hoskins' work. Instead of focusing on why things happened in the markets, Hoskins studied how things happened, and had noticed numerous recurring patterns in price, production, and economic data. In Hoskins' business, he projected this data forward and successfully forecasted the future of business and markets.

Hoskins and Dewey became successful in their cycle forecasting business. One day while conducting research in the library, Dewey stumbled on the transcripts of a past biology conference where 25 biologists had met to discuss the population cycles of wildlife, and also a study by C.N. Anderson of Bell laboratories, who identified cycles in sun spots. Dewey had a moment of profundity that changed the direction of his life forever; some of the economic cycles that he and Hoskins used in their business occurred with the same periodicity as the wildlife population cycles and the sunspots. Something caused all three of these cycles to go up down at the same time.

As a result of his findings in the library, Dewey went on to create the Foundation for the Study of Cycles and dedicated his life to uncovering cycles and cycle synchronies across many fields of study.

He presented evidence that thousands of cycles occur in nature (7,000), and that many rise and fall simultaneously across varied disciplines such as astronomy, biology, botany, astrology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, psychology, economics, business, and geology.

He also showed the relationship between cycles operating simultaneously at different levels of degree that today is called harmonics. He showed that harmonics existed in the cycles of different fields of study simultaneously. These cycles are most often separated by a factor of two or three.

For many years the Foundation enjoyed first-class funding, academic affiliation, and was considered relevant scientific work. However, when Dewey published his conclusions after many years of study, he suggested that there was an external force, probably emanating from the sun, that affected the electromagnetic field in which the earth was immersed, and altered the chemistry of all life on earth in regular, predictable, patterns.

Dewey believed that he'd cracked Mother Nature's code. This leap on Dewey's part to oversimplify the complexity of our world and suggest a unifying principle of everything under the sun, was of course more than the academic pillars of society -- built on the aggregation of material particles and pragmatism -- could accept. He was discredited by the likes of Milton Friedman and others, and his work was relegated to the scrap heap of pseudoscience. (See, Elliot Wave Principle: Mad Pseudoscience?)
