What we can learn from recurring patterns in the economy.

Founded in 1941 by Edward R. Dewey, the Foundation for the Study of Cycles (FSC) is an international not-for-profit dedicated to the study of recurring patterns in the economy, the natural and social sciences, and the arts. In addition to identifying thousands of verified natural, social, and financial cycles, the organization published Cycles Magazine  from 1950 to 1997, hosted conferences, published reports, funded research, and developed software that revolutionized the way we research and study cycles.

In 2018, after a period of time during which the organization began to lose its focus and relevance, I took over as chairman and CEO. I immediately began to spearhead efforts to rebuild the organization into what its founder originally envisioned: a community of scholars, scientists, and nonprofessional investigators who work together to discover the truth about cycles, apply the research, and contribute to the healing of a fractured and out-of-balance world. When Dewey studied the causes of the Great Depression, he noticed verifiable cycles in the market. Today, we find ourselves in a similar place, and our work is as important as it has ever been.

The FSC is once again a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) that boasts a new website and a revamped Cycles Magazine, while offering members access to the world’s most extensive collection of research and statistical data, a cloud-based cycles analysis tool, and a community of like-minded enthusiasts.
