Dennis Tubbergen: Demographics May Be Wrong for Recovery

Tubbergen also makes his radio shows available on his website as podcasts.


Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/20/2013 -- Dennis Tubbergen, a financial advisor, author, radio show host and CEO of PLP Advisors, LLC can be counted on to give a hand when it comes to understanding the latest events in U.S. and world economics.

Whether people enjoy his monthly newsletter at or his blog at, Tubbergen can be counted on to share his viewpoints and opinions. On September 18, 2013 his blog was titled Bad Demographics for a Sustained Recovery.

Tubbergen began his blog by saying, "A Business Insider article outlined a paper published by the International Monetary Fund titled "Shock from Graying: Is the Demographic Shift Weakening Monetary Policy Effectiveness?"

Tubbergen goes on to say he has been talking about this for a long time and has interviewed one of the premier experts on the subject, Harry Dent, on his radio program several times to discuss the topic.

Tubbergen has been writing for months about the various components of the economy and why recovery has been so slow.

"As people age, they don’t spend as much," explains Tubbergen. "If you’re not spending or borrowing, interest rates are not that important to you. That’s one of the reasons that the Fed’s stimulus programs have not been effective."

This trend is not just about the U.S. - it is worldwide. To see how long Tubbergen thinks the current economic winter season may last, go to and select his September 18, 2013 entry.
