Thank you for the education. Its better than any classroom. EJ ANSWER: The United States created the Federal Reserve in 1913. Prior to World War I, central banks were long-established in […]

Armstrong Economics - Greta Thunberg, the Swedish climate activist, was flown into Alberta, Canada the just before the Canadian elections. How does a 16-year-old journey to Canada? She must be escorted and who is paying for this lavish global trotting she is doing by flying on jets she wants to be grounded. Alberta is brewing for separation for […]

Armstrong Economics -   Once upon a time, if you voted against someone like Obama or Tony Blair in Britain, you simply accepted your loss and moved on. Those days are indeed properly for story books which begin – “Once Upon a Time.” This is not something which is unique to Britain. We are beginning to see the […]

October 15th, 2019 | Why is Socialism Dying?

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Martin, You repeatedly say that Socialism is dying. I live in a rural area of Oregon.

The influence of the media is so strong that even people we know who advocate gun […]

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Hi Martin, I can understand how JP and EU backed themselves into a corner with negative rates.

Armstrong Economics - Our computer models have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is absolutely no basis for human-caused global warming and that the climate has ALWAYS changed.

Armstrong Economics - This is a good documentary on the subject of human-caused climate change. In a court of law, the evidence argued by the global warming crowd is absolutely a joke and in a real court of law, they would be charged with criminal fraud. This is an agenda which has been usurped by the Marxists who […]

Armstrong Economics - In Canada, they are now fining people whose cell phone is visible in their car. You don’t have to be using it at all. If it is simply visible it is deemed to be a distraction. The hunt for money knows no bounds.

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Trump Impeachment. Y’know Marty, since the Democrats have tried unsuccessfully for so long to find some dirt on Trump, the guy must be squeaky clean, no?

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Hi Martin, first of all thank you for being alive and bring your knowledge to the world.

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Hi Marty – Thank you for the insight you provide as regards how the world really works.

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; When I first brought this topic up at our board meeting about the split in interest rates between private and public, there was skepticism because such a proposition had never taken place in the short-term memory of our perception of history.

Armstrong Economics - QUESTION: What do you say about the difference between corporate socialism and democratic socialism. Thank you. Its all the buzz among those supporting Senator Elizabeth Warren. LP ANSWER: This is a very clever way of excusing the core issue. The Democrats preach raising taxes and then sell loopholes to the big corporations. The bankers donated […]

Armstrong Economics - There is a clear rising risk factor emerging from both politics and geopolitics as we move into the January turning point on the Economic Confidence Model. As the economy turns down and as we head into the 2020 presidential elections in the United States, we are facing rising risk factors on many fronts. The Democrats […]

September 25th, 2019 | Liquidity Crisis

Armstrong Economics - COMMENT: Marty, you have made many unbelievable forecasts in so many markets around the world. But your forecast that we would see a liquidity crisis after Labor Day and dollar hoarding is at the top of the list. There is nobody who saw this coming. Your computer can see things nobody can.
