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.

Once upon a time Martin Armstrong was America's No1 political prisoner
2 May 2015 | by stefficoolingSee all my reviews

It was the advertising of this documentary via alternative media which actually first introduced me to the economic teachings of Martin Armstrong. What I subsequently learnt blew my mind. It meant I had to disengage with linear thought processes and instead understand the importance of cycles, complexity and know that human nature has not changed for thousands of years as history tells us we always repeat the same mistakes. The predictive computer model Armstrong created is so valuable, those in power will go to corrupt lengths to obtain it for their own ends, and you can bet that means it will benefit just a handful of people and ruin a much greater number. We owe Marty for not cracking under the pressure of living a decade behind bars. The portrayal of his story and that of family and friends, one whose reputation remains in tatters, is captured in a moving and thoughtful way. Main protagonists on the 'other' side were asked to contribute for balance but declined to comment - praps their silence says a thousand words. Sure, this film is a vehicle to expose and elaborate his side of the story, but the underlying message conveyed is that time is of the essence. Political unwillingness to address growing sovereign indebtedness exacerbating economic stagnation will deepen this crisis - all brewing for a turning point in his famous model for this October 2015. In the concluding minutes, focus is given to an Armstrong prediction, which does indeed come true. We cannot afford not to listen to this guy.
