While cycles have an ancient history, the science of studying modern financial cycles began over a hundred and fifty years ago in the early 19th century. However, serious study of financial cycles did not begin until after the American stock market crash of 1929.

Currently, the Foundation is applying its knowledge and database to the study of other natural cycles that will alter how the world perceives its own universe.
