The Problem with Goldbugs

September 16, 2023

COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong, I just wanted to say thank you so much. I was listening to the perpetual gold analysts for years who never changed their tune. It was always buy, buy, buy, and the dollar would go to zero any day now. They always looked at the Fed and the balance sheet, and when […]

Gen X No Longer Saving for Retirement

August 9, 2023

(click on the image above for a clear view) A new survey by Clever Real Estate shows that 64% of Gen Xers have stopped saving for retirement. These are the people born between 1965 and 1980.

United States Debt Downgraded to AA+

August 4, 2023

Inflation was transitory. Now, the credit rating of the United States plummeting from AAA to AA+ by Fitch is “arbitrary,” according to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. “In Fitch’s view, there has been a steady deterioration in standards of governance over the last 20 years, including on fiscal and debt matters, notwithstanding the June bipartisan agreement […]

Trying to Make Heads or Tails about Recessions

July 28, 2023

  QUESTION: Looking at Socrates,  do you think that these people who were constantly calling for a recession because there were two quarters that declined with covid really need revision?

The Cloward-Piven Strategy

June 6, 2023

There no such thing as Random Walks in Markets or Economics

March 15, 2023

  COMMENT: Marty, I really cannot thank you enough. Socrates called yesterday as the turning point and it was the strongest one of the week. We got the bounce when everyone was in a panic state claiming that the Fed would not have to lower rates. They really do not understand central banks as you […]

Will the Fed Reverse Course?

July 1, 2022

QUESTION: Marty, It seems like the Epoch Times is reporting nonsense. They just posted an article claiming that some analyst I never heard of claims that the Federal Reserve is “likely to reverse course and continue to print substantial amounts of money because doing otherwise would threaten the federal government with insolvency.” With the demand […]

The Pursuit of Knowledge

January 8, 2020

QUESTION: Hello Marty, I am fascinated by Socrates as it has opened my mind to patterns in my own nature and the flow in life.
