March 19, 2016 | The Ides of March – Pi Marked the End of the Roman Republic

Martin Armstrong

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.


COMMENT: Marty, I figured out why you bought the bust of Julius Caesar commissioned by Cleopatra. He was assassinated on the ides of march and that is effectively about Pi day.


REPLY: Very good. Yes, even Brutus issued a coin which he proudly declared he killed Caesar of the Ides of March – “EID MAR”. I never noticed before that the entire revolution and the end of the Roman Republic began on Pi day. I must confess, I missed that one. As for the bust, yes it is probably the most important piece of sculpture in existence. It is very interesting that our models also targeted this mid March period for the start of the decline in CONFIDENCE in the EU. Coincidence? We will find out I suppose.
