Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Dear Mr. Armstrong Isn’t the FBI a government agency? In this case, they are paid with “the people” tax money? Aren’t they supposed to be neutral, I mean, they should be “incorruptible”? They should not take a position for the left or the right. They should be there for “Justice”? Can you explain? Many […]

Armstrong Economics - COMMENT: Thank you for ‘Why Private Blogs’. You should get goose bumps once in a while about your work~, the project is massive in scale, certainly worthy of my respect and everyone else in readerville and your employ as well. This piece is well written and also lays out a good mission statement reminder to […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: What is the difference between asset inflation and hyperinflation? I believe you are saying that from Jan 2020 we will see inflation which I understand to be asset inflation? Thanks FL ANSWER: Asset inflation is typically a reflection of a decline in the value of the currency, but this can be 50% over the course of […]

August 15th, 2019 | Crisis Ahead

Armstrong Economics - The world is in a complete midlife crisis or some may say an end of life crisis. I am overseas as the world is simply going nuts. At times, I feel more like a shrink having to reassure people that it will all be OK. Both Europe and Asia are having a very bad string […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Dear Armstrong, According to Dow, a bull market has 3 phases, the final being the distribution by the smart money to the public. You stated that retail is still not participating. Could this be why the market appears to be unable to stop going up? Because the smart money continually fail to entice the […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Marty: If I have this correctly, you’ve said the Great Depression of the 1930s was a Global Capital Flow problem set in motion largely by sovereign debt issues that led to a massive capital flight into the dollar which created a tidal wave of deflation. Are we seeing this scenario today? Cheers, TM ANSWER: […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Hi Martin, What tools do the US have to TRY and manipulate their dollar lower (other than cutting interest rates) and in your opinion would they be successful? How much do they have in the Exchange Stabilization Fund? Do they have a defense plan to limit and control capital flows coming in? Thanks, RM […]

Armstrong Economics - It did not take long – Epstein is dead as expected. No way would he be allowed to go to trial. He was denied bail after offering to pay for 24-hour guards and wearing a GPS bracelet. He was denied bail in order to ensure he would never go to trial. He was held in […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION:  Dear Mr. Armstrong, reading your blog daily I am wondering how much and what exactly has to change in the peoples’ minds apart from the global changes that will manifest through all that is in alignment according to cycles that you have presented to the world. You are one of the few people, but […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Marty, Socrates has done an amazing job forecasting gold all by itself. What I find stunning is gold is rising but so is the dollar. This once again points out that all this gold analysis that it will soar because the dollar is fiat and will go to zero seems really absurd. You have […]

Armstrong Economics - We are clearly cascading toward the Monetary Crisis Cycle as the USA wrong accuses China of manipulating its currency for trade advantages. All one needs do is look at the trend of the dollar against other major world currencies and you will quickly see that the trend of the dollar against the yuan is in […]

Armstrong Economics -   QUESTION:  Dear Martin, am a loyal reader of your blog and many thanks to you for the education. Please, one brief but important question, which keeps me thinking hard these days. I remember your words, inflation should pick up in the next cycle. But, isn’t it the other way round? Isn’t deflation the next […]

Armstrong Economics - I am overseas as a crisis is brewing which many might rename the “Lehman Moment” to something more up to date. Clearly, the stakes are far higher to the world economy than anyone may truly appreciate. We are cascading toward a perfect financial storm. However, this particular storm is exacerbated by the politics of Europe […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: What is your view on the new demands for an investigation that there is “overwhelming evidence” that the buildings were brought down by explosives? KD ANSWER: I do not know about the Twin Towers, but I can say that the first World Trade Center bombers drew the World Trade Center on the wall of […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I figured there is nobody more qualified to answer the question of where and when did markets first begin to trade? Did markets have anything to do with the rise of nations you write about? KD ANSWER: Only those societies that developed financial markets ever rose to greatness. Those who bash markets fail to […]

Armstrong Economics - California is at war with Donald Trump. The state is currently involved in more than 40 lawsuits with the Trump administration on issues ranging from environmental regulation to immigration and safe cities. This is the problem with our legal system. Governments can pass any law they wish and then it is your obligation to prove […]

Armstrong Economics - When the GAO report came out on the Quantitative Easing by the Federal Reserve, it uncovered a secret $16 trillion feeding tube from the Fed structured as revolving, low-cost loans to any bank (foreign or domestic) teetering on the edge. Amazingly, the audit showed the Fed started the loans in December 2007 – long before the […]

July 29th, 2019 | Is Inflation Inevitable?

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong is there any way we can not have inflation. If so how? If not what would you say 5% or more? S ANSWER: It all depends on your definition. The type of inflation coming is more STAGFLATION where prices rise due to cost-push (shortages) but there is a declining economic growth. The […]

Armstrong Economics -   COMMENT: So Democrats and Republicans both believe that Americans are too stupid to make up their own minds about who to vote for is essentially the problem. They can be manipulated, indoctrinated, bullied and fooled. That sounds about right. They are educated but know nothing, and if they’re not educated they know even less. Isn’t […]

Armstrong Economics - What is most interesting is that there have been plenty of accusations against Google backing Hillary and any attempt to manipulate their search results is precisely what is alleged that Russia used social media to try to “influence” the 2016 election. All of this finger-pointing seems to be very one-sided since Google did what the […]

Armstrong Economics -   Our computer correlates everything from economics to nature. We have been warning that the next 8.6-year wave in the Economic Confidence Model appears to be one of inflation. This should be a cost-push version, meaning not DEMAND but shortages. One of the serious correlations we see is that the next solar cycle of 11 […]

Armstrong Economics - The Extinction Rebellion, formed in 2018, appears to be an extreme anarchist group that is using climate as an excuse to overthrow governments. Climate change has become a movement that advocates a hostile takeover of the world economy to end capitalism. This movement of climate protestors in Britain known as the Extinction Rebellion has a […]

Armstrong Economics - Boris Johnson has been elected as the new Prime Minister of Britain and he has promised to take Britain out of the European Union “come what may.” Jeremy Corbyn says Labour will table a motion of no confidence, designed to force Boris Johnson from office “at a time of (their) choosing,” adding “it will be an […]

Armstrong Economics - COMMENT: Well, Ray Dalio was short the market, missed the rally, and lost almost 5% for the first half of the year. Obviously, they don’t use Socrates – lol. LB REPLY: I do not advise Bridgewater and I have no idea if they even subscribe to Socrates. But what you have to realize is that […]

Armstrong Economics - California is the center of the far left which takes the position that even undocumented aliens can hold a position in government, they support sanctuary cities, and of course, they are the major movement in the New Green Deal initiative. Berkeley, California banned natural gas which is a clean fuel requiring homes to be powered […]
