He’s been silenced for over 7 years in U.S prisons, on barely-legal contempt of court charges. Influential players with much to lose have bent rules and worked over-time to make the charges stick. There were long weeks in the hole (solitary) and a suspicious “mistake” when a killer placed in Armstrong’s cell beat the frail genius brutally and left him for dead, while guards were “busy”. But now, perhaps due to an Amnesty-International style campaign, Martin Armstrong has been quietly freed.
Armstrong has a track record of accurate Market and Geo-political prediction second to none. So accurate, in fact, that the CIA reportedly made him an offer they thought he couldn’t refuse (They were wrong). This is a man who gets calls at 3:00 AM in the morning, from heads of countries, central banks and global financial firms, begging for his analysis, insight and advice.
This is the man who believes we had better hold on tight for the wildest ride of our lives these next few years, socially, financially, and politically. Diabolical plots to consolidate control by pushing the economy over the edge would actually be a welcome discovery. Armstrong says the reality is much more worrisome:
When you get long panicked calls from the top people in the world, you come to the realization that we’re in a runaway train and NO ONE IS IN THE CONDUCTOR’S SEAT right now!
THERE IS NO BETTER MEASURE OF A MAN’S REPUTATION THAN BOOKING AN ENTIRE HOTEL OF TOP LEVEL LEADERS AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE, AT $2500 A POP, COMPLETELY UNADVERTISED, AFTER BEING MUZZLED IN PRISON FOR NEARLY A DECADE.
That’s what happened with Armstrong’s ANALYTICAL AND WORLD ECONOMIC CONFERENCE being held in Philadelphia this December 3rd and 4th. It will not be advertised, anywhere.

Martin Armstrong (born November 1, 1949 in New Jersey) is the son of a lawyer and Lt. Col under General Patton in World War II. His full biography is on line. In short, Martin was encouraged by his father to get involved in computers during the mid-1960s. He completed engineering both in hardware and software but he returned to the gold business that he had begun while in high school to earn money for a family trip to Europe in the summer of 1964. He continued to work on weekends through high school finding the real world exciting, for this was the beginning of the collapse of the gold standard. Silver was removed from U.S. coinage in 1965 and by 1968 gold began trading in bullion form in London. The gold standard collapsed entirely in the summer of 1971 when President Nixon closed the gold window. In 1975 it became legal in America, for the first time since 1933, to trade gold in bullion form. Armstrong began exploring financial panics after witnessing the Crash of 1966. He went on to develop timing models such as the “Economic Confidence Model” that have been the subject of many press articles Armstrong’s discovery of this cycle was called The Secret Cycle by the New Yorker Magazine.. This model had stunning accuracy: it pinpointed changes in the economy right to the day. In Time Magazine, Justin Fox wrote that Armstrong’s model “made several eerily on-the-mark calls using a formula based on the mathematical constant pi.” (Pg 30; Nov. 30, 2009).
Armstrong’s Princeton Economics International, Ltd. established offices in Paris, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Sydney, Australia employing about 240 people around the world. In 1983, the Wall Street Journal cited Armstrong as it’s highest-paid advisor. He became one of the top currency analysts and his work was requested by the Presidential Task Force (Brady Commission) investigating the 1987 Crash. The firm rose to be perhaps the largest multinational corporate advisor in the world and by the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis Armstrong, invited by China, flew to Beijing to advise the Central Bank. -from wikipedia entry
