WEC 2019 Rome The Great Unknown

By admin / May 6, 2019

24,26,367,391.603394 This year’s World Economic Conference was most interesting. We really had to put our thinking caps on because we have entered the Great Unknown where Keynesian Economics has crumbled to dust. We have to reassess the future and how this will unfold as the central banks are beside themselves in many countries and the […]

By admin / May 6, 2019

The Rome 2019 World Economic Conference was a lot of fun. We have a very diverse crowd from around the world including central bankers, hedge funds, pension funds, and private investors.

  Chicago is now even colder that Antarctica with wind-chill factors at 70 below zero. What really astonishes me is that nature is never responsible for anything. Somehow, we are always to blame. This attitude seems to be exceptionally arrogant for we are more powerful than nature and to presume so we must assume that […]


US Share Market Meltdown?

By admin / December 20, 2018

Everything is still on track for a pullback. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at a 14-month low on Thursday, the second consecutive day of sell-offs after the Federal Reserve announced its fourth widely-anticipated rate hike of the year. Interestingly, despite the fact that the rate hike was expected, the Fed’s revised outlook for a cooler […]


Abuse of Prosecutorial Discretion

By admin / December 11, 2018

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; your explanation of Cohen’s plea is the most authoritative I have read. In other words, even Comey violated this statute by coming out to exonerate Hillary during the election since that was something of value and was intended to influence the election.
