Keynesians, due to the way their theory works, are incapable of predicting the downturn that I am predicting (see some of my comments on this website about economics), nor are they going to be able to predict future ones.  The law against recessions, which is the final part of my model and is in there only because the law happened, is a Keynesian concept and it essentially guarantees that Keynesians will not be able to see future downturns coming - as long as they continue to focus on just trying to enforce that law, they will never see any downturns coming. 

The Kondratieff wave is compatible with Austrian economics, but it is not compatible with Keynesian economics.  That may well be a reason why economists trained only in Keynesianism (which includes just about every economist in America) do not believe in the Kondratieff wave - and it may also be why so many of them seem to think that just because they have accomplished what they have so far in the 1990's and 2000's, it means the difficult things the Kondratieff wave predicts in the final phase of its cycle won't happen, i.e., the Kondratieff wave either has now been defeated or is irrelevant and so the end of the current one won't play itself out (which apparently makes the American economists feel all the more that the Kondratieff wave is not real).  In reality, as I have noted elsewhere on this website, the final part of the current Kondratieff wave has merely been postponed - and this website makes clear why.  The Kondratieff wave cannot be defeated - and Austrian economics makes clear why.  The longer the Keynesians try to continue to defeat it, i.e., the longer they are not overwhelmed in their effort to do so, that is to say, the longer they are successful in avoiding the end of the current wave, in other words, the longer they manage to postpone it, the worse the consequences will be.
