October 21, 2017 | ABC & Fake News

ABC News has indeed violated the principles of a Free Press and is the example why the old Fairness Doctrine should be restored. ABC News has come out and wrote: “Every American president has sparred with the press and fought back against stories unflattering or unfair. But no sitting president has in decades suggested media organizations […]

October 19, 2017 | Obama Administration Bribed by Russians?

Another example of how corrupt it is in Washington, the prior Obama Administration, including Hillary, approved the Russian purchase of American uranium resources, it turns out that the FBI has gathered evidence confirming that there was bribery taking place for Russia to get the deal. Of course, Loretta Lynch never investigates Democrats when her own Administration is the […]

October 12, 2017 | Taxes the Lynch-Pin of Civilization

October 10, 2017 | Democrats Collapsing with Socialism?

QUESTION: Marty; I just read Time Magazine that said the Democrats are in the worse shape since 1929.

Can your computer […]

October 9, 2017 | The Epidemic of Fake Analysis

COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong; I want to thank you for your work on Europe. We hear nothing from European analysts but up-up-and away and it makes one wonder if that is not fake analysis just like the news.

October 8, 2017 | It Takes Opposites

QUESTION: If hoarding and the flow into private equity is the way out of government debt obligations, does this point to an eventual rise on the low volumes of trading and will it reach historical volume levels again?

October 4, 2017 | Central Banks at Risk of Default?

Central banks do not play games with the markets but it sure feels like we are being played by someone!

October 3, 2017 | The Theory of Non-Linear Intervention

  Economics is well known for rather unrealistic theories based upon fundamentally unsound principles, such as the assumption that all things remain equal.

QUESTION: Marty, do you think any crypto currency will survive? ANSWER: No. We are looking at central banks and even the Chinese government is moving to create a Cryptocurrencies.

October 1, 2017 | Taxing Income Before You Earn It

September 27, 2017 | ECB Negative Rate Experiment May Lead to the Worst Financial Crisis in Modern History

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Your proposition that the quantity of money theory is dead seems to be a true earth shattering perspective.

Its basic tenet, repeated in […]

September 24, 2017 | Germany To Tax VAT Just Billing People Before they Pay

This is […]

September 23, 2017 | European Banking Crisis

Perhaps this period will be looked back upon ass the Draghi Deflation. After nearly 10 years of this failed policy, the European banking industry is contracting on every possible level.

September 22, 2017 | Dow High or Low

QUESTION: Hi Martin, I am confused with the Dow Jones Index, could the index explode up through 23,000 to 40,000 from here or does there need a downward move then explode up through 23,00 (a sling shot).  Could you tell us what you see for the next 6 to 9 months.  Probably the most important […]
