Armstrong Economics - QUESTION:  Martin, Love your blog, especially your historical perspective. You recently responded to a viewer that we should take precious metals out of safety deposit boxes. Is there a reason for this? To my understanding the bail-in rules for banks in N.america put deposits and bonds at risk only? Thanks.   ANSWER:  The contents of […]

Armstrong Economics - The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has begun to record the fingerprints of every person charged (not yet convicted) with tax evasion.

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Hello Martin, I was wondering if you could write a piece on the Norwegian real estate market? The market has gone complete mad the last couple of years with salaries declining, and housing prices booming. Over 40% of Oslo is now owned by people not leaving there. A lot of apartments are empty because people […]

Armstrong Economics - Of course the brainwashed Democrats send in emails saying Obama is not behind the shenanigans of civil unrest.

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Hi Martin It’s been 30 years since I first saw you speak and this year I’m taking my son to Orlando to see you for the first time. How time flies.

Armstrong Economics - While CNN and ABC news have turned really vicious against Trump, they are failing to report the real impact of world events that can undo everything.

February 16th, 2017 | Fed & Its Balance Sheet

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; At the WEC you said the Fed would allow its balance sheet to eventually shrink, it was trapped and could not sell off its holdings.

Armstrong Economics - A lot of people are scared to jump into the US share market. Some who have been regular investors write: “THIS MARKET SCARES ME!” They are getting vertigo.

February 14th, 2017 | Dow Hits 20,504.41

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Marty, you said the “main resistance stands for this week at 20505.” The Dow stopped today at 20504.41 and closed on the high. Nobody produced numbers like you do.

Armstrong Economics - The constant protests by the Entertainment industry against Trump will not subside. There is only one way this is going to end and that is blood in the streets.

February 12th, 2017 | Trump & Gold Standard

Armstrong Economics -   Trump has surrounded himself with a few people who believe that a new Bretton Woods conference will be necessary and they wrongly believe that a return to a gold standard will be beneficial.

Armstrong Economics - COMMENT: Hi Marty, I am in San Francisco (though trying to move out)….and attended WEC Orlando. In reading the blog recently there is a lot of talk about Civil War and the US breaking up. I have to tell you that the election in San Francisco was pretty much devoid of Clinton or Trump signs anywhere. There […]

Armstrong Economics - A shocking statement was made by a United Nations official Christiana Figueres at a news conference in Brussels.

Armstrong Economics -   The question of when will central banks fail is a popular one that comes in. Suffice it to say, the turmoil will hit Europe first. While so many people blame the Fed for all sorts of things, you must realize that Roosevelt usurped the Fed during the Great Depression and imposed a single interest […]

Armstrong Economics - Former President Obama signaled he is effectively setting up a shadow government declaring he now supports all the protests against Trump especially for stopping the acceptance of refugees settling in the United States.

Armstrong Economics - Columbia University Economist Joseph Stiglitz says that the United States should phase out currency and move towards a digital economy.

Armstrong Economics - Because Australia has convened a commission to terminate the $100 bill, in the wake of the currency being cancelled overnight in India, there is a growing distrust of high denomination euros and Australian bills.

January 5th, 2017 | Bonds & Climate Change

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Your Global Market Watch picked the high in bonds perfectly and called it a major high. I have to say, the system you have created monitoring everything is an incredible teaching tool. I can see what you are saying. There is a major global trend that politicians cannot alter and that is […]
