Storyline

MARTIN ARMSTRONG, once a US based trillion dollar financial adviser, used the number pi to predict economic turning points with precision. When some big New York bankers asked him to join the club to help them to take over Russia, he refused to join the manipulation. A few days later the FBI stormed his offices accusing him of a 3 billion dollar Ponzi Scheme - an attempt to stop him talking about the real Ponzi Scheme of debts that the US has build up over the years and which he thinks starts to collapse after October 1, 2015, a major pi turning point he is predicting.

True story but may never be shown in the US
4 March 2015 | by seamus-69See all my reviews

Terrific documentary about a genius who is also a crusader for the public.

It's a real pity it won't be screened in the US due to censorship.

It appears the big banks also run the entertainment industry as well as the government.

What is interesting is that even this site makes it hard to locate this movie. I typed the name in letter for letter and the search engine never prompted the movie.

For those lucky enough to see it it will no doubt open your eyes and make a hell of a lot of sense along the way.

FOOTNOTE 30/04/2015 - they did eventually screen it in the US for a week!!
