Socialism – Family Structure – Gold – Food

By admin / April 7, 2017

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; you said that socialism is collapsing and the West is most vulnerable because it changed the social structure and the family unit. Spanish families from Mexico seem to be much tighter groups than Americans. Is this what you are talking about? Did the ancient Greeks save money for retirement? Is that why […]


Nation Building Gone Wrong

By admin / March 29, 2017

Economic events have the most interesting way of exposing economic theories and orthodoxies and how seriously flawed they truly are these days. The fixed-exchange rate system and the Gold Standard imposed by Bretton Woods collapsed simply because they never fixed the supply of dollars, yet gold and other currencies were fixed to dollars. Only an […]


What’s Collapsing? Socialism or Capitalism?

By admin / March 21, 2017

QUESTION: Many people argue it is capitalism which is collapsing not socialism. How would your respond? ANSWER: Those people who say this is a failure of capitalism and not socialism simply are trying to come up with an excuse as to why their dreams are not coming true.

Unless Healthcare is Revamped – Unemployment Will Rise

By admin / March 2, 2017

Healthcare costs have continued to outpace inflation and just about everything else within the economy. Generally speaking, prices rise when demand increases relative to supply. The scheme of Obamacare was to force the youth to buy healthcare they did not need to pay for everyone else. The fines have been less than the costs so many […]


Ernst & Young no longer Requires Degrees – No Evidence a Degree = Success

By admin / February 27, 2017

  I have warned that 2015.75 was the peak in government and the two many industries that government subsidizes has created the decay within our American society reducing disposable income – healthcare and education. Degrees I have warned are really worthless. About 60% of graduates cannot find employment in the degree they have paid for. […]


Trump & Gold Standard

By admin / February 11, 2017

  Trump has surrounded himself with a few people who believe that a new Bretton Woods conference will be necessary and they wrongly believe that a return to a gold standard will be beneficial. What they fail to comprehend is that we have had many gold standards in the past and they all failed. Why? […]


Eliminating Currency = Communism

By admin / January 26, 2017

Columbia University Economist Joseph Stiglitz says that the United States should phase out currency and move towards a digital economy. All of these people advocating such policies are ignorant of the real world and advocate total government control. Stiglitz told the World Economic Forum that there are “benefits that outweigh the cost.” He hailed India for […]


Trump Keeping His Campaign Promises

By admin / January 24, 2017

About 75% of everything Obama did was by Executive Order bypassing Congress. That means that the next president can easily undo 75% of what Obama did by Executive Order.  On Monday, Trump signed an executive order formally withdrawing the United States from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal keeping his promise from his campaign last year. Trump […]


Connecting the Dots

By admin / January 22, 2017

COMMENT: I read your piece on “The “Trump Revolution” is not about Trump Himself” and I understood this is a global trend. I think one has to be biased and blind not to see the trend is emerging globally. I showed it to a friend and he said you were wrong its all about Trump. […]


Inflation Moving Higher Thanks to Dollar

By admin / January 19, 2017

Prices in the US are picking up strongly and support the Fed’s arguments for raising interest rates further. The rate of inflation rose by 2.1% in December, according to the Ministry of Labor. This is the highest increase since two and a half years. Some are suggesting this is due to higher gasoline prices and rents in […]
