Martin Armstrong: The Hidden Cost That Could Devastate Equities, Real Estate, & Long-Term Investments

In this thought-provoking episode, Tom Bodrovics invites back the esteemed Martin Armstrong from Armstrong Economics for an engaging conversation that spans historical political trends, economic repercussions of poorly thought out policies, critiques of politicians, NATO’s relevance, Neocon influence, gold as a hedge against uncertainty, and geopolitical tensions.

Armstrong asserts the recurring cyclical pendulum swing towards the left throughout history is predictable. He raises alarm over the economically destructive consequences of COVID-19 policies and climate change regulations on European small businesses. Armstrong denounces politicians for their power retention efforts, citing instances such as Biden’s lawsuits against Trump and perceived inconsistencies.

The conversation delves into the perceived threat posed by Trump to those in power, speculation of a potential false flag or war with Russia prior to the elections, low approval ratings for Congress and President Biden, and the administration’s emphasis on other issues. Armstrong maintains that those in power often deceive and judge others based on their own cultural norms and values, leading to misunderstandings and discrimination.

The episode recalls NATO’s inception during the Cold War when it was formed as a response to the Soviet Union’s expansionist ambitions. Martin criticize Western leaders for instigating conflicts and disseminating misinformation. He argues that NATO now primarily functions to propagate war fears and Russian aggression apprehensions.

The discussion also touches upon the possibility of Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the 2024 Presidential election and her past role in Benghazi incidents. Martin reveals that the ambassador involved was an arms dealer providing weapons for Syrian regime change efforts. Gold is explored as a reliable refuge during geopolitical tensions and instability, with historical examples like the Iran hostage crisis and Russia’s invasion of Afghanistan cited.

Furthermore, they delve into the role of digital currencies in international transactions via organizations such as the IMF, potentially replacing the dollar as the dominant currency. Mr. Armstrong suggests America’s fiscal irresponsibility and taxation methods contribute to the decline of physical cash and the shift towards a digital currency system. The upcoming presidential elections and potential civil unrest and political instability are also addressed.

Martin Armstrong is the Owner and Researcher for the website Armstrong Economics. He 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.

At age 13, Armstrong began working at a coin and stamp dealership in Pennsauken, New Jersey. After buying a bag of rare Canadian pennies, he became a millionaire in 1965 at the age of 15. He continued to work on weekends through high school, finding the real-world exciting, for this was the beginning of the collapse of the gold standard. Martin became captivated by this shocking revelation that there were not just booms and busts, but also peaks and valleys that would last centuries.

Armstrong progressed from gold coin investments to following commodity prices for precious metals. In 1973, he began publishing commodity market predictions as a hobby, and in 1983 Armstrong began accepting paid subscriptions for a forecast newsletter.

“In Armstrong’s view of the world where boom-bust cycles occur like clockwork every 8.6 years, what matters is his record as a forecaster. He called Russia’s financial collapse in 1998, using a model that also pointed to a peak just before the Japanese stock market crashed in 1989. These days, as the European sovereign-debt crisis roils markets worldwide, he reminds readers of his October 1997 prediction that the creation of the euro “will merely transform currency speculation into bond speculation,” leading to the system’s eventual collapse.”

His Website Armstrong Economics offers a unique perspective intended to educate the public and organizations on the global economic and political environment’s underlying trends. Their mission is to research historical cyclical trends.
