As serpentine and fascinating as a John le Carré novel...Armstrong tells one hell of a good story.
NO LONGER PLAYING
Martin Armstrong, once a U.S.-based trillion-dollar financial advisor, developed a computer model based on the number pi and other cyclical theories to predict economic turning points with eerie accuracy. In the early 1980s he established his financial forecasting and advising company Princeton Economics. His forecasts were in great demand worldwide. As Armstrong's recognition grew, prominent New York bankers invited him to join "the club" to aid them in market manipulation. Martin repeatedly refused. In 1999 the FBI stormed his offices, confiscating his computer model and accusing him of a three billion dollar Ponzi scheme. Was it an attempt to silence and prevent him from initiating a public discourse on the real Ponzi scheme of debts that the world has been building up for decades? Armstrong predicts that a sovereign debt crisis will start to unfold on a global level after October 1, 2015 - a major pi turning point that his computer model forecast many years ago.
