Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Good afternoon Mr. Armstrong, First of all, thank you for all the information you give us on your blog so that we who are and live in third world countries like me can understand the behavior of the global economy and especially in the rich countries. The way I approach the issue of the […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION:  Hi Martin, I am a long time follower and devoted to your blogs. It’s something that goes well with that first cup of coffee in the morning.

December 4th, 2019 | Conspiracy Against Trump

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Are you familiar with Qanon and if so what are your thoughts. KJF ANSWER: No I do not believe it. That is a conspiracy theory that there is a worldwide cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who rule the world, essentially, and they control everything. They control politicians, and they control the media. They control Hollywood, and they […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: The more I read that Trump’s opponents will resort to violence, I am amazed at your computer and how it has been putting all this together years in advance. Are we just pre-programmed somehow? KF ANSWER: I do not think it is the people who are pre-programmed. It seems to me that government inevitably […]

December 2nd, 2019 | Legarde & Green Bonds

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Marty; Why is Legarde pitching Euro Green Bonds when they lose money? JL ANSWER: If she can use the climate change nonsense to shame Germany into agreeing to issue Eurobonds, it would be a step to eliminate the refusal to issue a single European debt. If Legarde can sell that issue, then it will […]

Armstrong Economics - COMMENT: Marty; I want to thank you for a great conference. It is clear you are the only true institutional adviser. Our board is very impressed. The FT reported that there is still no  single factor that caused the dislocations in the repo market in mid-September. You are the only one who explains the event […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Hello! More and more people in western Europe are talking about the coming civil war between the Muslims/Arabs and the Europeans. Guillaume Faye has even written a book about it. I personally believe that it will break out between 2025 and 2050 and that it will start in France. Me and my friends are […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Marty, is it true that Al Gore was behind the Y2K scare back in 2000 that all the computers would crash and nothing happened? JC ANSWER: Yes.

November 20th, 2019 | Mother of All Financial Crises

Armstrong Economics -   QUESTION: The distinction between the Repo Crisis and Quantitative Easing is the duration and purpose as distinguished from 2007-2009? HS ANSWER: Yes. Under QE, the Fed was buying in 30-year bonds in hope of creating a shortage of long-term paper that would in theory lead to consideration of buying long-term mortgage paper. It was trying to […]

November 19th, 2019 | The Repo Crisis

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Marty; The goldbugs are back and claiming the Repo Crisis is MMT and this is again just printing money endlessly to cover up a major banking crisis in the USA so buy gold of course. You said at the WEC cocktail party this would happen because these people never understand the world economy. Is this […]

November 18th, 2019 | Custodial Risk in New York City

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Hello Marty, Your commentary and Socrates’ predictive capacity is ground-breaking. I have been following you for years. Thank you for your time and efforts. I find it fascinating that the foretold decline of the West (by Socrates) coincides with the fourth-turning demographic study described by Strauss & Howe. Watching it unfold is causing some […]

November 15th, 2019 | Understanding the Repo Crisis

Armstrong Economics - COMMENT: Marty, thank you for a great conference. The comments out there on the liquidity crisis have been just domestically focused.

November 13th, 2019 | Gold & the Future

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; First I want to thank you for your conference. It was my first time and I was impressed when your daughter asked how many people attended prior sessions. The number of people standing beyond 10 years was impressive. I spoke with one who had been at your 1987 WEC. He said you […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Do you think it is remotely possible for any return to a gold standard? I believe these arguments are not realistic. DR ANSWER: The fringe fantasy of a return to the gold standard just never dies. If we did not have vast unfunded liabilities and rising socialism to contend with, then such a possibility […]

November 11th, 2019 | Warren’s Wealth Tax

Armstrong Economics - Warren’s Wealth Tax is so destructive to the economy and demonstrates that she listens to Thomas Piketty, the French communist pretend economist. She wants to impose a 6% tax on billionaires per year. That means if you lost 20%, you still have to pay 6% of your assets every year to the government to fund […]

Armstrong Economics - The attorney for the claimed whistleblower against President Donald Trump that the Democrats are desperate to try to hide his identity, Mark Zaid, defended his tweets calling for a “coup” against President Trump. Zaid claims to be nonpartisan but he is obviously not when he calls for a coup against the president of the United […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Marty, you said at the conference the efforts to overthrow the dollar as the reserve currency have failed and it will take the Monetary Crisis Cycle to accomplish that. Now that Lagarde is in the ECB, will she aid that overthrow to be replaced by the IMF’s SDR? It was a fantastic conference this […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: As I understand you’re writings, the € is not a good currency to be in. I’m South African and stay in the Netherlands for 13 years now. I’ve been following you’re advice not to be in €’s and therefore I only have a house here that can be seen as a € investment. I […]

Armstrong Economics - COMMENT: I find it interesting how the rest of the world is declining and Socrates forecast that the US economy would be only slightly weak going into January 2020. It is interesting how it picks up the major differences. They are blind to the trend. You bring together the world. Thank you for that and […]

October 31st, 2019 | A House Divided Cannot Stand

Armstrong Economics -     The Federal Reserve, as expected, cut rates a quarter-point. The Fed also warned that further moves to ease interest rate policy may be coming to an end.

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Why was Britain the financial capital of the world before the first world war? Are you saying it was not their gold reserves?
