September 14, 2015 | Changes on September 30/October 1, 2015 – 2015.75

Martin Arthur Armstrong is the former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.



It is very interesting to see that we have a lot of things emerging for our turning point on September 30/October 1 (2015.75). This is the day the funding of the Federal government stops and many are speculating that the government will shut its doors thanks to the conservatives in the Republican Party. Given the fact that the debate will also involve Planned Parenthood and abortion, we may see this religious aspect create the real resistance to raise the debt ceiling. Therefore, there is an actual risk that we may see the government shut down and this could actually be the catalyst to drawing the attention to the entire problem with government debt.

The medical industry changes as well come October 1. The U.S. Health Care Industry will make changes to ICD-10 for all disease coding. All physicians and insurance companies must comply with this coding program by rolling over from ICD-9 to ICD-10 at midnight on September 30. The number of codes for diseases will grow from 16,000 to over 60,000. This is because there are more diseases popping up with time.

These are just two examples that target that specific day.
