I love these date specific doom porn articles. Apparently, this guy predicted the crashes of '87 and '08. Supposedly the US Govt. wanted to get a hold of his program and threw him in jail until he relented but he never did.

"For nearly ten years economic forecaster Martin Armstrong sat in a federal prison.
He had not be charged with any crime. He was never given a trial. They simply arrested him, seized his life’s work, and threw away the key. Why?
Whatever you may believe, the facts are clear. He documented his predictions publicly, once even taking out a full page advertisement in USA Today just weeks ahead of the Savings and Loan crash of 1987 warning of what was to come.
Last month Armstrong warned that, while unlikely, whatever is coming will be so significant that a Mad Max Event Is Possible, so the Fall of 2015 won’t just be your average stock market crash".

Win Win!

Well its not true


Lawyers for the Republic New York Securities Corporation, the company's securities arm, pleaded guilty to two counts of securities and commodities fraud before Judge Richard C. Casey of the United States District Court in Manhattan.

In its plea, the company acknowledged that some of its employees overstated the value of assets in the accounts of Martin A. Armstrong, the New Jersey investment adviser who is awaiting trial on charges that he cheated Japanese investors. Those fake account statements covered up huge losses and allowed Mr. Armstrong to commingle client money to advance his scheme, prosecutors contend.

A grand jury indicted Mr. Armstrong in the fall of 1999, accusing him and his firm, Princeton Economics International Inc., of cheating Japanese investors out of about $750 million in the 1990's.

No doubt that this is why they are releasing Fury Road in 2015.

I went digging a bit, thanks for that.
Now, do we know if his other "predictions" were really accurate?

"In 1986, Armstrong published The Greatest Bull Market In History. This was the first study ever written that put the entire world events together demonstrating that the Great Depression of the 1930s was a Global Capital Flow problem set in motion largely by sovereign debt issues that led to a massive capital flight into the dollar the created a tidal wave of deflation. By the 1987 Crash, the Presidential Task Force (Brady Commission) was then calling upon Armstrong for help recognizing that volatility had become the number one problem".

"Time Magazine, November 30th, 2009, Justin Fox wrote:
Armstrong’s model “made several eerily on-the-mark calls using a formula based on the mathematical constant pi.” (Pg 30; Nov. 30, 2009)".

"Our models are structured upon reality. We employ a scientific approach to forecasting based upon the very theories proven in all other forms of science. No matter how hard people try to ignore the facts, there is always order within sheer chaos and chaos within order. Repetitive patterns are the very foundation of science. The universe is built upon this same foundation. It is the gravitational force which keeps everything moving according to repetitive patterns. The weather itself is a delicate balance of extremes. Rainy seasons are followed by drought. Conditions change, but the rhythmic cyclical patterns persist. They are the foundation of economies and markets as well".

I wonder if his other predictions also contained the words "unlikely" and "possible".

I`m not impressed by predictions that say things like, maybe,possibly,theoretically,technicaly,etc.

I have never taken date specific threads on the Predictions and Prophecies forum seriously. In my ten years on ATS the hundreds I have seen never came to pass. Maybe they should include the disclaimer: For Entertainment Purposes Only. But I still find it fun to follow them as the date approaches. We'll find out next October. This can't be any worse than the much hyped Dec. 21, 2012 predictions.

Well that isn't exactly true.



In September 1999, Armstrong faced prosecution by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission for fraud. During the trial, Armstrong was imprisoned for over seven years for civil contempt of court, one of the longest-running cases of civil contempt in American legal history.[1] In August 2006, Armstrong pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit fraud, and began a five-year sentence




On September 29, 1999, Armstrong was indicted in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York for fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, for having conspired with employees of Republic New York involving Japanese investors. Republic New York pleaded guilty to fraud in federal court on December 17, 2001 and agreed upon a restitution order on January 9, 2002 of $606 million.[6] Armstrong represented himself and was excluded from some proceedings, leading the Associated Press to question whether Armstrong could get a fair trial.[7] The government charged Armstrong with civil contempt and he remained in prison over 7 years for failure to surrender various assets that may have been purchased with money from the investment fund at the center of the litigation.[1][8] According to the New York Times, "Over the years, Judge Owen would revisit the contempt order every 18 months, guided by the federal statute. He repeatedly said that Mr. Armstrong was motivated by greed and was awaiting his release from jail to retrieve the $15 million that the government said was missing. According to lawyers who worked on the case in the early days, the financier’s headstrong manner irritated Judge Owen almost immediately."[9] On August 17, 2006, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy.[2][10] He was sentenced on April 10, 2007, to five years in prison

Maybe it is a different Armstrong?

Your point is? Again, I say these dates are just for fun. Even though Armstrong was a crook, at least he appeared to forecast some things correctly by date using a predictive model. Sylvia Browne, who a a few members touted as a true medium despite many failed predictions and not being put to a test (see James Randi challenge), was a crook too. And she wasn't even in the finance industry, except to make money off of parents of abducted children who she told their offspring were still alive somewhere.

"Fraud conviction[edit]In 1992, Browne and her then-husband Kenzil Dalzell Brown were indicted on several charges of investment fraud and grand theft. The Superior Court of Santa Clara County, California, found Browne and her husband had sold securities in a gold-mining venture under false pretenses.[45] In at least one instance, they told a couple that their $20,000 investment was to be used for immediate operating costs.[46] Instead, the money was transferred to an account for their Nirvana Foundation for Psychic Research.[45] Browne pleaded no contest to securities fraud and was indicted on grand larceny in Santa Clara County, California on May 26, 1992.[47] The couple each received one year probation. In addition, Browne was sentenced to 200 hours of community service.[45"

Isn't that obvious?

The information you gave on him was not correct. You made it seem like he got locked up for no reason and was denied trial which isn't true.

Dang, I wonder how hard it would be to weaponize a Prius.
