It is with a deep appreciation for the contributions of Richard Mogey to the Foundation for the Study of Cycles that we share with you the sad news of his recent passing.
Richard took on the role of Executive Director of the FSC back in 1990 and shepherded the FSC through over two decades during difficult times. Through it all, Richard tirelessly carried on the true tradition of Edward Dewey in determining accurate cycles periods and phases and curating valuable data. He answered cycles skeptics with accurate data, impeccable results, and considerable grace. Moreover, he was a great help to countless other cycles researchers over the years, many of whom cite Richard’s influence over their own work.
The passing of Richard is a great loss to the cycles community. We will miss him and remember his dedication and integrity.
In this short but fascinating video, FSC Board Member Andrew Pancholi gives us a cycles lesson about history (or a history lesson about cycles).
Take a look at an 82- to 84-year cycle of disruption, revolution and great change, from the history of world events to Harry and Megan and turmoil in the British Royal Family.
We are thrilled to announce the release of the second issue of the revived Cycles Magazine, a special 80th Anniversary edition.
Cycles Magazine is a quarterly publication that showcases the work of Members and cycles researchers from all over the world. It is exciting to see Members submitting their cycles research. We hope you will participate by submitting your research.
Cycles Magazine is our commitment to preserve and sustain the heritage of the FSC and advance Founder Edward R. Dewey’s original vision of the FSC as a not-for-profit institution dedicated to discovering and promoting a new science of cycles.
In this issue, read:
- Two articles by Edward R. Dewey: Stock Prices and Space and Stock Prices, Mercury and Space
- An update of Dewey’s articles by Bill Sarubbi: Stock Prices, Mercury and Space in 2021
- Theodore Modis: A Hard-Science Approach to Kondratieff’s Economic Cycle
- Edward Samokhvalov: Geomagnetic Butterfly Pattern
- Andrew Pancholi: Forecasting Long-Term Market Cycles
- Michel Jacquemai: The Curious Cycle of Pestilence
- Lars von Thienen: Asymmetric Business Cycles and Skew Factors
Enjoy! And let us know your thoughts.

In his blog post from 2018, Foundation for the Study of Cycles’ Chairman of the Board and CEO, Dr. Richard Smith, wrote, “One of the things that I am personally most excited about is that we have secured all of the physical assets of the FSC... Here is a picture of what we found in the Palm Springs storage unit when we first arrived.”
Smith continues, “After nearly two weeks of tireless work by Nathaniel Hansen, I am very pleased to report that these archives are in much better condition today.”
Thousands of documents were organized. Some have been scanned and are available in the FSC Library, which is accessible to Members. Others are precious, one-of-a-kind documents that have yet to be scanned.
One of the main priorities of the Foundation over the last two years was to secure a safe place and environment in which to store the archives. Recently Smith rolled up his sleeves again and prepared the new storage space.
We are all resting much easier knowing these irreplaceable materials that trace the history and work of FSC are in a safe place.
