Setting the Stage for the One World Currency – Martin Armstrong

By Martin Armstrong We can start to see how the one-world currency comes into play with BIG BANG. The more these governments try to manipulate the outcome of the free markets, the worse everything becomes. I met with members of the board in charge of the Swiss/Euro Peg just before the Berlin Conference. I explained that no peg has ever lasted and Bretton Woods stands as witness to that in recent [...]

A vital step in the shift of the Financial Capitol of the World moving from the West to the East, is becoming visible if you pay attention.

by Martin Armstrong Armstrong Economics Just in case if you have not seen this, Big Bang is clearly in play. The dominoes are starting to fall!

Optimism vs Pessimisim – Martin Armstrong

by Martin Armstrong Armstrong Economics There is little doubt that we live in interesting times. However, it is not always doom and gloom.

The Political Union of Europe Has Failed – Martin Armstrong

The entire vision that a United States of Europe would prevent war has proven to be just another academic theory gone seriously wrong. Brussels has been fighting against any opportunity for the people to vote on exiting the Euro from Scotland down to Spain and Italy. They could not prevent a democratic election where the party had an agenda rather than a vote on the issue directly. The idea of[...]

Fighting the Business Cycle – Longest War in History: Martin Armstrong

by Martin Armstrong The one war that never ends is how people constantly try to fight the trend. The ECB will buy bad government debt they created instead of doing what was necessary from the start – consolidate all state debt. That would have enabled the Euro to be a viable currency creating a reserve base that does not exist today. Instead, leaving each country with its own debt that was[...]

Swiss Abandon Peg to Euro – The Euro is Dead – Long Live the Swissy – Armstrong

January 15, 2015 The Swiss franc has risen by almost 30pc against the euro after the central bank shocked global markets by abandoning its long-standing peg to the euro imposed in 2011. The Swiss had no choice. They have been buying Euro at alarming amounts as smart money bet the Swiss would be far better at the end of the day than a Euro. As long as the Swiss was pegged to the Euro, the Swiss[...]

Big Bang – Sovereign Debt Crisis in Full Swing & Government Bubbles

 by Martin Armstrong The Sovereign Debt Crisis is unfolding on schedule. I have warned at the Philadelphia Conference that half of Germany’s municipalities are on the edge of bankruptcy as was the case with Detroit. Instead of reform, no, government just increases the tax burden upon the people who they see having an endless supply of money to be expropriated for their personal glory. Just[...]

OECD Fears Middle Class Civil Unrest Is Coming

Authored by Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics blog This idea that we live in a world where government cares about us is just the biggest propaganda ever.
