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.

Excellent documentary
12 April 2015 | by filmtravel101See all my reviews

The documentary was very well shot and the director and editor did an excellent job of keeping it insightful and provocative with a fantastic musical score. I was quite impressed with the flow of the film and surprised at the tempo as it covers a vast array of information on Martin Armstrong and his life and struggles. Kudos to the film makers. I was one of the lucky ones that caught a sneak preview in California.

Truly a remarkable film about a genius that is becoming a legend around the business world on the level of a "Tesla - John Adams". I have followed Martin Armstrong's career for a long time and used his advice to understand the global markets in a completely different unique manner that hopefully politicians and governments will follow to improve society rather than trying to avoid the same mistakes.

I've had the pleasure of also using his advice in my global trading business and also in my personal life and feel blessed that he continues to thrive and share his wisdom especially after so many unfortunate challenges. Keep up the great work. Carpe Diem!!

I highly recommend this film especially all the interviews that make it a very personal film, and it is hard to believe that it is not playing all over the USA.
