The Story of martin armstrong

Can a computer model predict the world economy?

0

MARTIN ARMSTRONG, once a US 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 80s 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. Later that same year (1999) the FBI stormed his offices, confiscating his computer model and accusing him of a 3 billion dollar Ponzi scheme. Was it an attempt to silence him 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 forecasted many years ago.

“Marty was held in jail from 2000 until 2006, not; because he was convicted of a crime, but because he is in a stand-off with the government.“
David Glovin, Reporter at Bloomberg News


Cycle of Imprisonment

the forecaster interactive - bonus video

Martin Armstrong was imprisoned for 7 years for civil contempt, one of the longest-ever such cases in American history.
From prison, he continued to work on his economic models, writing articles and analyzing the impact of current events.

“We don´t necessarily think in cycles in politics. Perhaps we should. We must learn the lessons of history, otherwise we might be condemned to repeat its mistakes.“
Margaret Thatcher, Former Prime Minister UK

"The fascinating aspect is the stark difference between the American and European press. The American press, in general, are too engaged in self-censorship to report the truth to the people. At least in Germany, they are willing to discuss hard issues."
Martin Armstrong

Filmperspektive GmbH

Our goal is to create a platform for the independent production of documentaries and fiction films. We are interested in using our unique backgrounds and styles to create feature length films that are high quality and tell stories that people throughout the world can relate to. We strive to do this by focusing on creating material that is  powerful, edgy, provocative, contemporary and must be seen because of its political or social relevance. Our vision is to create a network of filmmakers and commissioning editors around the globe who believe, like we do, that films do make a difference. Our aim is to create a student filmmaking program for young people who would otherwise not have a chance to be educated in this field. For more information please contact: info(at)filmperspektive.de
