Discovering and predicting Cycles in Nature and Economics
Who We Are?
The Foundation for the Study of Cycles (FSC) is an international non-profit research organization for the study of cycles of events. It was incorporated in the state of Connecticut by Edward R Dewey in 1941. It has published “Cycles” magazine and recorded the work of Dewey and many other cycles researchers through the years. The FSC also holds conferences and publishes its proceedings. It publishes two journals aimed at investors, Business and Investment Cycles and Cycles Projections.
Currently, the Foundation is applying its knowledge and extensive database to the study of natural cycles and will alter how the world perceives its own universe.
The purposes for which said corporation is formed are the following: to wit: – To receive, administer, and disburse funds for scientific, educational, and charitable purposes, all for the public welfare. – Connecticut – January 10th 1941.
Cycles International Research
FSC is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of finding and analyzing recurring patterns. This includes the economy, natural and social sciences, the arts and more. To date, more than 4,300 natural cycles have been documented with interrelated patterns.
FSC Techsignal is based on the unique approach developed by the Foundation for mainframes in the 1950s and improved during the next half century with many new, powerful features as a result of advances of the computer age. For the last decade, the Foundation has been refining its methods of cycles detection and studies of cycles applications almost exclusively in the financial markets, due to readily available and accurate data.
“With our current events of immense importance to humanity, such as suicide bombers, the war on terrorism and the recent natural disasters of Katrina, Rita and Wilma, the release of this software could represent one of the most important milestones in the history of the social sciences,” said David M. Perales, president of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles. “This software represents the study of cycles at its finest, ‘the science of prediction,’ and this type of research, including disaster forecasting and planning, is clearly imperative at this time in history. Cycles in natural and human events are not only real, they are inevitable. Knowledge of cycles can help us, but the ignorance of them will harm us. Just ignoring cycles inherent in events will not make them go away.”
The Foundation History
The Foundation was founded in 1941, by Edward R. Dewey, former chief economic analyst for the U.S. Department of Commerce, following support from President Herbert Hoover, who hoped to determine what had caused the Great Depression. This government assignment led to Dewey’s discovery of coincident “cycles” in nature and business, and, since then, the Foundation has made studies of thousands of verified natural, social, and financial cycles. The Foundation has been the leading developer of computer software to detect cycles in time series data.
