Fear of Inflation & Sterilization

By admin / April 9, 2019

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; you were friends with Milton Friedman. Do you agree with his view that the Great Depression was caused in part by the Fed refusing to expand the money supply?

By admin / March 15, 2019

QUESTION: Hi Mr. Armstrong…Thanks for trying to settle our confusion re: Griffin’s “Creature” You make a distinction between Gov’t mandated debt & Fed helicopter money.

By admin / March 14, 2019

  I cannot stress enough that Mario Draghi has really destroyed the European economy on an unprecedented scale.
